Is This The New Trend?

I've seen two or three times where a mentally handicapped kid has been allowed to score and it's touching because you know the kid, smiling from ear to ear, believes he has accomplished something.

But I'm not sure I've ever seen an injured (albeit extremely injured) player score by consent. I can't decide if this is odd or great.

(Wait. Wasn't there some female basketball player a few years back who was allowed to score a lay up so she could keep some personal record intact?)
