I have no idea how the physics of that shot works. It should be impossible, shouldn’t it?

Pretty much every team — college and pro — runs a half-court shot promotion and the Hawks are in there with everyone. This fan’s shot at Friday night’s Hawks game was… unique. And not just for the unorthodox shooting style.

Frankly, I think he should get the cash for that one.

      if you can’t grab that net at average height, you are severely out of shape.

      Do we know that it wasn’t Mike Brown? Frankly, he has the time.

    Wow, that’s harder than actually making the basket!

    The chances of this happening.. wow, lol. I’ve watched it three times. Just can’t wrap my head around it.

      Really? Feel free to explain how. Or, was this just a lazy attempt at trolling?

    Interesting video, but shouldn’t we think more of this? Either that ball is underinflated or something’s off about that rim.
