Well you basically just described yourself even though you annoy people unintentionally.

There were no good players on this team.

They had zero points at halftime.

ZERO.

We just matched up with the other person playing our position, and everybody on our team was playing.

And the kid wasn't obviously retarded. You only realized it once you started playing that this kid was special. He didn't start, but he was subbed in while I was still on the floor.

They are using empathy and altruistic behaviour to give him the chance to fulfill a dream. Those are behavioral values we should strive for, not keeping people in predetermined boxes they can't escape from without help.

Default Re: HS basketball player passes ball to mentally challenged player on the other team

leave it for ISH to derail even a story like this

anyways, great decision by the guy passing the ball. at that point of the game, it was meaningless, the game had been decided, it didn't mean anything for either coaches. what's also awesome, and not mentioned by anyone here, is the coach's decision to let the manager play.

reminds me of HS, during the last game of the season, my coach let the bench players start. the starters cheered for them, it was all good

life isn't so serious.. have a lil fun

Meh, you're the same idiot who thinks socially awkward kids should stay inside. Go troll elsewhere.
