LOL!! that was almost good enough to make up for my disappointment of this thread not being about the old video game
Second thing was that this play would work even better if Derozan could catch and shoot. Instead, he runs 6 feet past the 3-pt line, slowly turns around and waits for the defender to get back into position before dribbling around aimlessly for a few seconds. Total waste of an awesome play by Val and Amir.
the only thing stopping this from being an epic basketball achievement is that nobody scored off of it
It actually kinda worked a bit though.
This is Casey's finest coaching achievement.
if that's legal then why not line up a wall on inbound plays too! could work to free up Gay for a buzzer beater down the road..i cant believe that's not an illegal screen though!
Amazing. Now thats working together!
This is going on Shaqtin a fool
LOL that was awesome.
The general opinion around the blogosphere about this play seems to be that they revolutionized the game. Haha
Everyone seems to love it, from Yahoo!s Ball Don't Lie to Larry Brown Sports. Its a hit! Haha
I think David Stern should award the 1st overall pick for this incredible discovery
Actually, I'm kind of pissed. The play itself is great, but it's the kind of surprise play you save for a really important moment in a really important game, e.g. game winning shot in the playoffs or something like that. Not 10 seconds into a meaningless game with another meaningless team at the end of yet another meaningless season.
Man, this thread title made me dig out the ol' NES games. Maybe I'll watch the The Wizard later on too.
On the play. I like it a lot. I don't think there's a way a ref can make a call on it as long as the guys stay hip to hip. It's not a loose ball foul or anything. THey are not disallowing the chasing defender from doing anything, they are just making a bigger screen. They technically have position, and there is no space to split the screen. If the defender charged through it and split it, it would be a foul on him.
*Now, back to Battletoads & Double Dragon....
This thread desperately needs some...
Its probably a good thing people have long since forgotten about THIS abomination of a movie...
Its right there with Mario Bros as worst Game-to-Film movie ever made.
