    McElwain, a Rochester, N.Y., senior nicknamed "J-Mac" by his friends, never made the varsity team because of his size and instead served as its student manager. But in the waning minutes of the final game of the regular season in February, his coach rewarded McElwain's dedication and attitude by putting him into the game.

    McElwain's first three-point attempt was an air ball, which he followed with a missed layup. He then scored six three-pointers, his last one the final shot of the game -- a feat that Johnson said would be nearly impossible for a seasoned pro to accomplish, nevermind a high schooler not accustomed to playing time.

    I hate it how you can't just quote someone and you have to say something about it now when the flick is all that I wanted to say, thus further impacting the shit this man is receiving.

    You can just remove the quotes and everything, so it's just the picture... but I know what you're saying.
