Default Re: Best shot you've ever hit.

We were playing three point knockout at a middle school playground, with regulation courts and rims. My three hit the rim hard and bounced pretty far to the right side out of bounds near half-court. I ran and got the ball, in one motion I threw it up from near half-court on the right side, and swished it in. At the same time, some little kid was running around out of bounds on the right side. As I came down from my shot, I bumped into the kid and knocked him over. It was kind of sad and an accident, but nevertheless, it was a three-pointer from near half-court + the foul.

When I was 8, I was playing a game of 21 with my 13yo bro and his friend and with no spot I beat both by 7 with the game winning shot being a skyhook way beyond the 3pt line with both of them guarding me close

Playing pickup ball I was torching this one dude and finally he got fed up and as I was shooting the ball he blatantly shoved me with both hands sending me damn near horizontal, I shot the ball anyway and it miracously went it. I didnt see it go through cuz I was lieing the on pavement looking skyward, but everyones reaction was proof enough.

Not in game: Do dunks count? I once threw down this dunk where I had my right palm on the left side of the ball, and vice versa, on a 9'8" net. It looked pretty cool.

The best shot though has got to be when I threw a football from about 10 feet behind the basket, across the court in to the other net.

In-Game: In an actual game, all I can think of is a certain high school game. I was driving baseline, I tried to hop-step/muscle my way in, but I got fouled and ended up behind the net. I threw up the ball, over the backboard, but it rimmed out. I'm not sure if it would have counted anyway, but it was a decent attempt at an impossible shot.

Game winner in the championship game for a summer church league last summer against the official church team--gym full of supporters. 6 seconds left, they had just made a basket after my friend forgot to rotate over again. I bark for the ball, dribble through the press, and after passing half court put it through my leg once, stepped back for the NBA three and pulled up with 1.2 second left. All net, walked out with my hand still in the follow through motion. Best game of my life.

Has to be an illegal shot.

Was mucking around and then talking it up and said I could kick it in from 3/4 court.

Mate called me on it(obviously) and so i gave it a go and hit it.

Didn't call bank so he made me take it again and I hit it again.

To this day I have not hit it once since or even got close and was just talking trash when i said I could. Just one of those freakish things.

That's cause I have it on my buddy's cam, where milliseconds exist. Thank you, you can try again though.

Wrong again...

Why would you fake something like this on the net? or did you just fabricate the .2 to make it sound better?

Because even if your buddy's cam had mili secs, which I doubt. It wouldn't have any relevance to the game clock......

Default Re: Best shot you've ever hit.

I've made a few hook shots from behind the baseline and corner 3-point line to win "unorganized" games. That might sound like a stupid shot to even attempt on several ocassions in the clutch, but sometimes I'll need a three or I'll be tired and even slower with less hops than usual. Moreover, I'm a good long distance shooter, and the defense knows that, so sometimes I require the hook shot.

One game-winning shot that I remember particularly well was in a 1-on-1 game where I got caught probably more than 6 feet behind the 3 pointer. I was looking for a 3 pointer--my opponent knew it--and I was exhausted. I picked up my dribble and was looking to just launch it up, but he was covering me so well that I just stopped. I looked for a way to throw the ball off his legs and out of bounds, but he was doing too well of a job to avoid that. I had no timeouts, either.

He was covering me too tight for me to even take a jump shot. I was too close to out of bounds and too far away for a hook shot or fadeaway. So, I pulled the ball over the back of my head and took an awkward set shot. It went in with just a bit of rim contact.
