If it wasn't for his length especially, id say no way. But Im not trying to say I know everything and I'm right, i could easily be wrong...and tex winter COULD be fibbing but what reason does he have to fib? I'm sure he wouldnt go to the people who implement rules and just do it for the lulz... Would you see it as being possible if it was something like this ?

Close but more of a throw in than a dunk
