great story though. The news needs more of this kinda stuff

I didn't say anything negative. I thought it was cool that they let him do that but it was getting pretty pathetic when he was missing.

I just don't like how people look down on the mentally challenged by giving them these fake moments.

The best thing to do is treat them as our equals. I didn't have a problem when the other autistic kids were shooting and scoring because they can actually play.

It is sad when people do this to the mentally challenged. He was embarrassing himself out there for the sake of those people at the school, coaches and teammates to feel good about themselves for allowing this to happen.
