    Great great story! Really warms the heart.

    But lets be real. "wtf was the coach doing not playing him all season." This was the last 4 min. of the last game, so it prob. didn`t mean much to either team. If it was a game that really mattered I think that the other team would actually guard him.

    I am not taking anything away from this kid though, on my best day on a completely open court I couldn`t do that.

    What kind of an ignorant, backwards, gaped-mouthed moron would say something like: "If it was a game that really mattered I think that the other team would actually guard him."

    Are you STUPID? I have to assume that you`ve never played sports. Because if you had, you`d know that it doesn`t matter how far you are behind and it doesn`t matter how late in the season the game is, you ignorant piece of garbage. You always play your hardest, idiot.

    That kid is amazing. Typically, jealous people will post things like, "Erm..no1 wuz garding him." Stupid idiots. That kid could outplay you any day of the year.

    It wasn`t about winning or losing or if the other team guard him or not. It was about giving a special kid a chance to get in the game. it was kinda like the rudy movie.if he never get to play again atleast he has that memory

    ^ bigoldjeffry: You don`t have to be a chicken to critique an omelet dude.

    And I`ve seen PLENTY of pro players in different sports NOT always play their hardest. PLENTY. Makes me wonder if you know what you`re talking about, actually. Basketball, hockey, football... seen it everywhere.
    So, IMHO, I don`t think ajax is stupid, gaped-mouthed moron.
    And perhaps you ought to look into decaf.

    That you d_w for coming to my defense.

    Help me out here, bigoldbagofhotair. You are coaching the opposing team. You`re in last place, it`s the last game of the season. 4 minutes left. You are down by, let`s say, 30 points. The other team is putting in an obviously autistic young man, so he may have the thrill of his life. When he startes making a couple shots what are you gonna do, double or triple team him? Oh wait, let me guess, foul him!?!

    You should realize that this young man`s moment may be just a tad bit more important than you pitiful win/loss record.

    Do us all a favor, if you have kids don`t get involved with their sports life. You just don`t/won`t get it.

    Prick.

    Ffs people, get over it. This was posted as a nice heart-warming story and as per freakin usual, someones gotta come along and rip it apart.
    Could you`s not have just looked at this and thought - that`s pretty sweet that this guy waas given 4 minutes to play, and he made every second count. Or something like that. So what if they`re was `no defence` or if they `werent trying` - point being, 20 points in 4 minutes is infreakinpressive, no matter if he was autistic or well defended or whatever. And no I don`t know anything about sports but I still stand by it.
    K I`m done.

    I was not trying to rip this apart. I think this is a fantastic story and have forwarded it to many people. It is one of the best stories I`ve seen here.

    My only, ONLY, point is that it is wrong to think that this kid is a basketball "rainman" and would have racked up 3,000 point in a season if he played. That wasn`t the point of the news piece, so that isn`t what you should take away from it. Period.

    Sometimes some really wonderful things CAN happen in this f`ed up world. Can we just enjoy this one please.

    Being autistic does not mean that you aren`t athletic - you basically have problems relating with people socially.
    So, to see people make such a big deal about this is kinda sad in a way - because of the way "normal" people view autistic people.
    The kid may have good game - he was never given a chance to showcase what he may have because of his autism until the very last game of the season.

    Very touching.

    At my school we had a kid with down syndrom *sp?* who never played all season. The last game of the season we were winning by 20 poits so coach lets him play and some jerk says he doesn`t care he was going to block him anyway so we try to get the ball for him and he misses a few passes but we are determined to get him he ball. So finally he gets the ball and everyone screams shoot and that jerk who said he was going to block him tries to block him but Joe (the kid with down syndrome) pump fakes (I don`t know if he meant to) and the kid goes up and Joe takes the shot and makes it. And we all just start screaming and he thought he did something wrong and we`re all like you did good. Maybe not as gread as this story but it will stick with me forever

    That is really inspiring to know that someone can do that. My friend was two siblings, both with autism and they both have very special talents. One of them is an incredibly fast typer and the other is really good at spelling. With autism its often normal for the person with the autism to have strong points in areas of life.

    That was great..... 6 3s in the last four minutes of the game. If he is at that school next year I feel he needs to get a chance to play more often....

    And for those of you who say things like "no one was moving on the court" You try and go to an EMPTY court and hit 6 three pointers... in 10 mintues let alone 4 mintues.

    He did not get lucky that is pure skill.....

    I saw it on the local news, here in the North West and the newscasters were close to tears. I sent the link to my friend who has an autistic son. That story is just all good!

    Wow...a wonderful story. My little brother is autistic, and it`s always nice to hear such great stories about how people rise above the challenges they`ve been handed.

    I was ready to tell a story about this autistic kid I know and how much I hate his family, but that just seems low now. Stuff heartwarming, that was heartMELTING. I was almost in tears by the end of it. Who cares which point of the game it was at, if they were winning or not. That was brilliant, and what made it even better was the support he got from the crowd. Even when he was just called up, before he`d done anything, the people watching went crazy. That respect was just for being the team`s gofer, getting thier water and stuff. You`d be hard pressed to find anyone in my area with a disability who would get that sort of praise. We smile, wave and be nice to disabled people (physically or otherwise) but most people steer clear. At my primary school, it was combined with a school for disabled kids, and three of us a day were chosen to go visit in there and play. The younger kids were fine, they loved it, but the older kids (not me, I loved it too) didn`t want to even go near the fence

    Well DaSniper44, either you`re an attention whore, which is probably most likely, or you have a relative/know someone that`s autistic so you have to deal with the daily hardships, and instead of talking to people about how you feel about it, you decide to bottle it up and or turn it into agression towards other autistic people.

    Anyways, have an UNDERSTANDING day.

    Opiebreath where did u get ur psychology degree, on the internet from a 10 minute course? I have no idea where u got either of those from. I have never known anyone with any mental illness, nor do I crave attention. I really dont care that he can play a sport and was merly expressing myslef which is what comments are for. If i wanted attention id dress up in a pink dress, dance the macarena, and post the video here.

    Let`s see. "DaSniper44". We all know a sniper has obvious connotations with death. Then the Nazi symbology in the avatar. Nah, no attention craving going on there.

    Eh...I didn`t think that was autism. I also agree with a few statements about the caring of the other team, he looked pretty open at all times. Most playersd don`t even get the ball enough to >TRY< 9 shots in four minutes...

    "autistic kids suck ass"...dear jesus. have you no soul? please, keep those comments to yourself. if you knew what most autistic kids did with their lives. this isnt saying that hes a super dooper amazing basketball player who is better than you, its that he had a mental handicap that could have been life ruining but instead of letting it ruin his life, hes trying his hardest and overcoming it. why dont you guys stop being so hateful and maybe try being a little loveing?

    My friend was just talking about this to me yesterday actually. He saw it on the news and just saw it for the first time here. It`s awesome when people who are so used to being looked at sort of, differently get accepted so greatly like that for a whole stadium to raise him in the air. I don`t care if people were blocking him, othe rpeople can play better, or no one else was even trying, he made 6 friggen 3 pointers in a row in a game to win it at the buzzer, after being the little `coaches helper` for so long!

    This aired on the news a couple days ago in my state (Borders NY) They made it sound like he was "suited up" every game and never given a chance, in fact, I think they called the story "something Benchwarmer"

    Albeit, this is a nice story. I think it is a bit overvalued by how people are reacting.
    Not that it`s not a heartwarming story, or a base level testament to the goodness in humanity, but I couldn`t help but sense an underlying patrionization lingering with comments along the lines of "Wow, it`s so good for one of those handicaped people to get a break" I feel that if more people would actually take the time to fully comprehend autism they would understand that what autistic people lack in logical thought is compensated for in other ,less praised, facets (ie deeper creativity, intuition and more right brain tendencies) than us "normal" people. This story ,in contrast, to a story I read about a woman with autism who uses it to communicate with animals and console them before they are about to be butchered so they can die with dignity seems less poignant. It seems for someone to fly into our self righteous radar, they must conform to our banal ideals.

    Yeah, I live a 1/2 hour from NYC and saw the news report on CBS. Yes it`s real, and no, it`s not photoshopped. I think it was a really great story. 2/3 of the players on the court probably couldn`t make one 3-point shot, but he manages to make several in only a few minutes. I bet the coach is probably kicking himself right now. :)
