From both teams.  His team mates helping him, and the opponents standing by and not trying to block it.

Who knew basketball courts had so much dust?

There aren't enough [slow_clap.gifs] on the internet for this video.

I saw this on Twitter, and I'm glad subby thought of submitting it.

That kid was pretty big. All the kids on the other team were afraid of him.

S'okay, I just got something in both my eyes too.

Double finger pistols at the end?  That's a power move!

No basket.  Three in the key.
 
2019-03-17 4:13:55 PM  
That was sincerely touching.

Billy Liar: No basket.  Three in the key.


A ref doing that and emphatically calling it, a la Enrico Palazzo, would have made the whole video even better.
 
2019-03-17 4:56:55 PM  
What if the other team had a disabled kid who always dreamed of blocking a shot?
 
2019-03-17 5:49:45 PM  
Nice shot, kid. Now get back on defense.

Hey, those AAU scouts ain't looking for feel good stats. They want to see true HUSTLE.

We see so many of these, the one a couple of years ago where the softball player hit a Homer and injured her leg, then the other team carried her around the bases.
/ So many like this.

He should been like "IN YO FACE, biatch!" and hot dog it the rest of the game.

OK, not all humans are assholes.

2wolves: OK, not all humans are assholes.


Seriously. I was half expecting the ref to call a tech on the kid for excessive celebration.
 
2019-03-17 9:54:55 PM  
Want to see more like that? Go to a special needs game. One of the greater shocks of my life came as I thought some kid was taking the piss by doing an "announcer" during the play. Turns out he was autistic and that was his only way into actual play. Super sweet kid. On the court were kids with trisomy. Kids with severe coordination problems. Kids with a whole battery of skeletal development issues. Their parents are ANGELS.

Pretty young kid too.  Doesn't seem like he's at the age yet where he is looking for likes or was hoping to go viral.  Pretty genuine.

I volunteered at a few special olympics events. Local tournaments.

There are a lot of « ummmmm » moments but those kids are awesome.

One of them likes to shove people into the pool and give them the finger when they surface, all the while having a big goofy grin. Just because someone has the « mental age » of a child doesn't mean they can't be an asshole - kids can be assholes. That said, this guy was awesome. The most gangster downs kid you ever saw.

My brother has Down's, so I've volunteered during some and coached with my dad during, er, 2-3 others. It's definitely an experience, that's for damn sure.

#50! He is a gentleman and a scholar.

/my six-year-old son finished playing on his first organized basketball team

///don't let your kid be on a team with two sets of twins

watching #0 reminds me why I don't play basketball. I think he actually did a better job than I did in the few years I played as a kid.
