    Very inspiring.

    Strange how some of us with TWO arms can`t even dribble the ball right...hee hee.

    I suck at basketball! But this boy is awesome. People really can do anything with strong will, hope, and dedication.

    I knew this kid growing up, he lost use of his arm when he fell out of the back of a truck when he was little. He had a second arm but it just dangled and a few years ago had it removed.

    He plays for Wayne High in Utah, they lost in the semi-finals in the State Tournament, but Porter is an all state player.

    And he`s missing heat vision, ice breath, flight, y`know, the usual stuff.

    OMG, people, get over yourselves. Can`t people like me be treated with some fraggin` dignity? We`re just like you, and can do anything we want, and I for one would appreciate it if people would stop "Ooh"ing and "Ahh"ing every time I get a can of peas off the top shelf at the super market. I`m not missing an arm, but my right hand IS deformed. Unlike the other people on here, I`m telling the truth. I`ll post a picture of it somewhere and send it in to fancylad just to prove I`m telling the truth, but it`ll probably be ignored...
