I found this via Deadspin: A young Chinese girl lost her legs in a car accident and her parents replaced them with...a basketball. And in case you're wondering: I'm being deadly serious here.

Fortunately, she now has prosthetic legs.

Those resourceful Asians! I wonder if we can replace Yao Ming's feet with basketballs when they break down again.

Wow the interesting thing is that she's a swimmer. I wonder how that works but that's pretty damn awesome.

That was a ballzy move by the parents.

They probably bawled for days when this happened.

This story really deflated my day.

She looks like she has a little more bounce to her step now.

She must have had to jump through a lot of hoops to get where she is today.

She looks like she is having a ball though.

She's a real baller in the swimming pool.

I wonder if she is also in the ball room dancing competition?

Thats all I got. I feel like there should be more though. And I also feel that I might be going to Hell.

Her parents really went balls out.

OK, now I'm finished.

This is horrible, but all I can think about is Lebron dunking the baby...
