Yeah, full court jump shots 8-o


;-7


That was frickin insane. 8-o

defiantly ;-D 8-o


Yep, I saw that commercial too. 8-o Unreal. 8-o



I saw the making of the commercial somewhere. The shots are not really going in. It is just editted with computers and the other people in the shot are actors who can react appropriately.

But, so who guys are not disheartened, I do have some good news. The final shot that he takes does actually go in. You can tell because he reacts to it, and everyone else reacts much differentely than when the others went in. Watch closely next time. ;-D


Thank you Captain Obvious ;-) :-b


Sorry if I insulted your Hopkins education in my last post. ;-)
I thought the fact that he made the last shot was an interesting tid-bit of information I could share. In the future I will refrain from posting anything that may be too obvious for you. ;-D

A very nice shot indeed. ;-D
Yes doctor, I am sick.
Sick of those who are spineless.
Sick of those who feel self-entitled.
Sick of those who are hypocrites.
Yes doctor, an army is forming.
Yes doctor, there will be a war.
Yes doctor, there will be blood.....

a friend of mine told he that according to the rules that was actually a traveling violation. :-?

I told him I didn't think so because he didn't try to get up and didn't move.

I don't think it was because he wasn't sliding when he finally got possession of the ball.

It wasn't a travel, he just had his back/but on the floor, but as long as he wasn't sliding or didn't put his feet down it's not a travel (according to my interpretation of the rules) ;-D
BTW that was an amazing shot 8-o not as good as the full courter we saw a month ago though.

I think this was more amazing because it was totally improvised. People occasionally practice full-court stuff. No one practices laying on their back.

True, but I bet you I could make more shots laying on my back from the three point line than just throwing up a full court shot.
