It’s amazing to me that an NBA shooting guard can’t make a wide-open 7-footer.
Everyone’s talking about LeBron’s last shot and whether he was fouled, etc. But Cleveland lost the game because Larry Hughes pulled the string on a gimmie.
What are the chances Rip Hamilton misses that? Derek Fisher drills it with his eyes closed if he’s playing the Warriors. Ginobili wouldn’t even have to shoot it. Once he catches the ball and no one’s around him, Flip can call the timeout because no way Manu misses.
Seriously, Larry? You missed that. Why not bank it? Why not lean in rather than fade away? Why not take one step in and dunk it? Dude, you have to make that shot! You just have to!
