Can't we all just get along?
What?

Your game should be "Chess".

Because you only see Black and white game pieces.

Maybe we should pass a law banning chess because it is a racial game...or we could make a new politically correct chess board, with colorful pieces from all the colors of the rainbow.

No one was here name-calling, until this comment. That person never addressed anything directly to you, either for it to be an excuse for behavior on other topics. The comment above is what this topic was reduced to.

Why would someone video someone watching tv?? Can't be too exciting of a video.

Someone else said basically the same thing I said earlier. Even if a person isn't being guarded very good, the person attempting the 3 point shot still has to make the shot go in. Whether he had autism or not, he still made 6 or 7 three point baskets, and that isn't an easy task. There are NBA players who can't even shoot 50% from the free throw line which is much closer than the 3 point line.

See that guy was able to get enough help for his autism that he became a famous basketball player.
