    Link: Banned for Being Too Good - This 12-year-old basketball prodigy won`t be playing league ball this season? Why? Too good a player.

    Umm, they better do some kind of therapy. Over 6` tall as a pre-teen? I`d be more concerned about her potential health problems than playing basketball.

    PS: It kinda sounds like she might just grow a penis, if she`s planning to play in the NBA.

    im not watching the video I read it on MSN. I dont know if it says it in the video but the people were complaining that since she is a girl, they boys weren`t fouling her hard. If thats true then they have a legitimate complaint, but then again, they could just be making that up

    Damn, she`s huge! I`d come up to her KNEE. D: Qquuaacckk, did you not see her parents? Her mom is as tall as she is and her dad is even taller. She`s perfectly healthy.

    Why don`t they see if they can get her on the high school team? They could probably bend a rule and get her in.

    my friend turned 14 in Jan. and he`s 6`5``
    but he`s not amazing at basketball
    and the sprinkles kid is a "bundle of sticks"
    or a "cigarette", if you get my drift

    i like banning her from playing. She should get these stupid notions of equality out of her head and get used to the idea of raising the kids in the day and having sex at night. that`s all ahe`s good for

    What a crock. The kids seem to want her on the team. Talk about making a huge deal out of a non issue.
    She`s talented, so let`s punish her, and instead promote mediocrity.
    Ugh..

    Wow, the sparkles kid was hilarious. It was so funny to see the girl, so mature and laid back, and then the other 12 year old talking about `greatness sparkles`.

    Go back to the kitchen, woman, and learn how to cook! /sarcasm

    Boys, if she`s better than you, then just go ahead and slam her harder, I don`t think she has any grounds to sue.

    OH NOEZ, they won`t let me bend the rules of a private league that have always been there, what shall I ever do?! Oh, I know, complain so much that I get media attention.

    That sparkles kid should be backhand slapped across the face...

    The parents are just pissy because she makes their boys look bad, and they still believe that "playing like a girl" is a bad thing... at my school, the Girls basketball team is winning as many championships as the boys football team. and my school is also the only school in the district to have a male cheerleading and poms squad.

    "Her greatness just kinda sprinkles off on us and makes us better"...that kid said it best! Too bad some of the adults (who run the league) don`t get it. Girl just wants to play ball...if she was short and lousy would they let her?

    So she can`t play on the boys team, so what? At least she can still play on the girls team. It`s not like she was banned from playing at all.
