wanted to post this last week but couldn’t find a clean video. this is one of the prettiest passes, prettiest plays in general i’ve seen this year.
the dribble > hesitation fake > no fucks given southpaw heave along the baseline is just a thing of beauty. i tried it at the court this week and sent the ball flying 30 feet out of bounds. but it still felt good to just let it rip.
manu is the reason flopping has become as big as it has, but even i can’t hate on his playmaking ability. with the celtics out of it and timmy being one of the only famous wake forest atheltes left, i’m happily pulling for the spurs to win it all this year, if only to see more plays like this.
