The Miracle Basketball Video and Why Facebook Made it Popular

Since this weekend, I’ve seen over a dozen Facebook friends share the same video of a high school basketball team manager in New York (who had never gotten to play before) who has autism who was put into a game and hit six 3-point shots.

Through Facebook, people marvel at the accomplishment. They call it “Inspiring” and say that it “brings tears to your eyes.” It’s called “a feel good news story.”
