Autistic basketball player

I first heard about this autistic basketball player at Crooks & Liars but now it's all over the news and it's a great story. Heard part of an interview of the boy's mother on Jim Rome today and after that basketball game, the boy now knows he can have a normal life and not be a second-class citizen. It's a nice change of pace to hear this kind of story rather than the usual side of sports, and that's not even getting into the police blotter. It's one of those rare times when mainstream sports can bring about the kind of self-realization that is usually the goal of the martial arts.
