Or: when in doubt and the game is on the line, pass it to the fat boy!

i can't decide whether it is fortunate or not that this kid's pinnacle achievement in life was caught on film. on the one hand, he can regularly revisit the moment throughout his almost certain steady and unyielding decline from such an early high, but on the other hand, it's probably eventually going to become a burning reminder of what success in life felt like.

Glad it went to the fat kid.

It's a side effect of large numbers of events and large numbers of cameras.

There's also a serious long-tail effect in the video uploaded to YouTube, I'd bet 95% of it garners less than 10 views a year.

I like how 44 on the red team thinks it was somehow good news for his team when it went in.

I love how the ref had his hand over his face because he was laughing so hard.

That shot is hard enough to do in H-O-R-S-E, respect to that kid being able to do it in a game!

I bet every play is "pass it to the fat kid".

At least this kid will have the moment his life peaked on YouTube.

I like that the opposing team actually enjoyed the kid making the shot too. They didn't get upset or angry or anything. Just appreciative of a completely random backwards shot made by the resident fat kid on the basketball team.

I see dribbling is optional. Was that the NBA?

I don't know. He could work on becoming the white Oliver Miller. He's already got the big part down.

Alright fat kid!

Ever since the Goonies gang broke up, Chunk has been wandering from youth league to youth league, trying to find his place in this world. Until one day, a church basketball league opens its doors -- and its heart -- to a rag-tag kid looking for friendship.

I don't see anything wrong there. The only kid who moves more than just to pass is the #34 and he takes a step and pivots.

GO FAT KID! FAT KID POWER!

The video doesn't actually say it was a game-winning shot. The red team could have won or lost by 20.

ps, am I the only one who is disappointed he didn't celebrate with the truffle shuffle?

Wow, that sounds like a pretty big crowd there. Good for them.

White-people playing basketball is about as exciting as women not named "Force" driving racecars.

Because of your slight misspelling of cheerios, I held the 'r' sound and read your quote like Chingy.

/not putting you down for your spelling, just noting my amusement.

Loved the kid running across the court with one shoe off.

Church ball. The red team applauded him, and seemed genuinely happy for him.

This is one of those things that baptists and mormons have in common.

Unless I was being paid to play, I'd clap for someone who hit a backwards buzzer-beater.

The kid's lost a little weight! Good for him.

Imagine taking a charging foul from that kid.

You'd be lucky to come out of the coma within a year.

You're probably right. That was a pretty amazing shot.

Great shot, but that was the play for a last second shot with maybe 5 seconds left and needing a bucket to win? Pass it backwards, then pass it to a kid at halfcourt who looks like he'd rather be playing xbox, who throws it in the general direction of a fat kid who heaves it over his head with his back to the basket? Another great call by the coach......
 
2013-01-11 05:11:37 PM
I bet you he has practiced that shot hundreds of times. That is his go to shot for H-O-R-S-E, he turned around very quickly, like he expected it to be close.
 
2013-01-11 05:46:47 PM
Fat kid lost his virginity that night.

I thought that at first, but he convinced me he was just confused.

That's what I thought. Unless this fat kid is some sort of savant with a basketball there's no way you pass it to him on the last play of the game and you need those extra points. I don't care if this is a church league, kids are kids.
 
2013-01-11 06:57:25 PM
most excellent.....

for a kid who probably lives in a van down by the river.


was that wrong?
 
2013-01-11 07:01:31 PM
Did that buzzer sound weak to anyone else?
 
2013-01-11 08:35:31 PM
The video never says it was a game-winning shot, was it?  Everyone on the court was playing like the game had already been decided, which makes a lot more sense to me.  10 seconds on the clock, up by 15 (or down by 15, for that matter)?  Sure, throw it to the fat kid and let him whip it backwards over his head...

It makes sense if the game wasn't close.

I don't see where subby got the idea that the shot won the game...

The lack of brawls spilling out of the crowd and onto the court is also disappointing.
