Far be it from us to judge an NBA player’s shot, especially a throw-away, halfcourt or full-court heave at the end of a quarter or half, but we just can’t let this one go, Enes Kanter.
With zero seconds on the clock as the third quarter came to an end, the Oklahoma City Thunder forward grabbed a tipped shot under his own basket, turned and launched the basketball all the way down court. Usually, a fling like that would fall short of the hoop or careen off the backboard. But Kanter put so much mustard on the ball that it sailed way over the hoop and about ten rows into the stands. It was such a ridiculous sight that Kevin Durant paused and laughed as he headed back to the bench. If he hadn’t missed his target by a mile, it would have been impressive.
Either Kanter doesn’t know his own strength or he needs some serious work on his aim. Get it together, Kanter!
