Usually when someone hits this shot they hand the ball to their opponent and taunt him with “you’ve got H.”
Because when else are you taking this shot other than a game of H-O-R-S-E?
Things are different for LeBron James, who hits it with the clock running down in the middle of a tight game. Larry Bird, Kobe Bryant and others have hit similar shots before, but that makes it no less impressive. It was easily the shot of the night and maybe the season.
