Well done. 🤗

I've watched so much coverage on this shot, yet still can't believe that dropped. Still watching clips of it daily. I think I've watched it 200+ times. Lol

I figure I’m just over 100 lol.

But it’s amazing to see actually how close that shot was to missing. Most views it seems like it’s going in clearly after the third bounce. If you see the look from the top of the key though, EVEN after the third bounce it could have gone the other way.

Three days later and I’m still in utter amazement.

Let’s be honest with each other at least - amazing as that shot was, it was also a stroke of pure luck. Kawhi is an amazing player, but if he tries to re-create that shot a 100 times, from that distance with Embiid in a position he was in, he’d probably miss all 100. Let’s light many candles and pray the next series won’t come to depend on him making another one like that.

Obviously it was a lucky shot. Not sure anyone would disagree. But great players that want the last shot often get a lucky break. It went in and that's all I care about.

Luck is part of it. Mike likes to bring it up at weird times. Like when we acquired Kawhi - we got lucky. When he made that shot - he got lucky. Just don't get that need. It is sports, of course, luck is part of it.
Otherwise, let's just rewind the last year and just say JV was unlucky on that tip in against Cavs in game 1. Then keep Casey, DDR, JV, Delon, CJ Miles and say oh, we were unlucky, run it back.

MJ was lucky they didn't call that offensive foul on game winning shot against the Jazz. 
KAJ was lucky they banned him from dunking in NCAA so he developed the skyhook.

At the same time, you advocate multi year tanking. Luck is the very foundation of that. The very reason it exists as a method is to try and get lucky and repeat it a few times until you get really damn luck and nail a generational talent. Somehow that's method and these other things are luck.

P.S.

Nice video Halph, nice work! Kudos!
