Dream basketball shot from 8-year-old

...Probably shouldn't have counted

Dream basketball shot from 8-year-old
11 March 2011

When we were eight we could barely kick a football 25m let alone hurl a basketball that distance.

This youngster has no problems, mind you. Even under pressure he threw this herculean last second three pointer from what our American cousins refer to as 'downtown', winning the game. The same American cousins point out that apparently he's travelling (holding the ball and moving his feet without a bounce) and the shot shouldn't count.

That's the sort of attitude that explains why they're infinitely better than us at sport.
