That. Was. Awesome. We are still a few months away from a billion other high school kids pulling this move and airballing the shot, which will lead to the mainstream media wondering if Steph Curry has ruined basketball. But in the meantime we can all appreciate LaMelo Ball matching the swagger of his name and his haircut with an all-time ballsy shot. What a fucking stud.
And as intern Tex showed us, a halfcourt shot is no easy feat.
PS I just read KFC’s blog on this shot. I didn’t realize the Ball family was a goddamn budding basketball dynasty. No doubt in my mind the Knicks end up with whoever ends up being the bad Ball brother.
