Unlikely Basketball Star

At recess the other day a group of competitive boys were playing basketball. For some reason a boy who usually prefers to play alone took a risk and joined the other boys. This young man happens to have cerebral palsy. When the other boys saw him, they immediately welcomed him to the game and one boy even tossed him the ball. You would have thought he found gold! He took off running down the court with the rest of the boys trailing behind and the leader protecting him the whole way. The girls sitting on the grass were cheering "GO!" and "You can do it!" Even though he couldn't dribble he was able to get down the court with a huge smile on his face. Then he tried to shoot a basket. He wasn't able to jump, but the boys kept on tossing him the ball, giving him many opportunities to shoot. Finally he trotted away as if he was satisfied with the opportunity to play.
