The thing I like best about this amazing, incredible, unbelievable, never-to-be-duplicated basketball shot is that it only happens because an opposing player (our antagonist) is overconfident in his supposed victory and therefore careless with the ball, and our protagonist (and my new hero) never gives up hope even in the face of overwhelming odds and almost certain defeat.
It’s the combination of victory and defeat that I like best.
The triumph of pluck and determination.
The knowledge that the brash and careless have suffered for their arrogance.
Not to mention it’s the most incredible shot I’ve ever seen.
