The 90-footer

Giving hope to all last-second chuckers (or perhaps incentive for those who don't want to hurt their stats) ... this guy make a 3-pointer at the buzzer off a missed free throw... the other team was shooting the free throw. If that link doesn't work, try this one.

To give everyone credit... I first saw it HERE, but also posted on BlazerTalk.

Now... something to think about... what if the NBA expanded from the 3-point shot, to additional point values (kind of like MTV) ... like, half-court to the other guy's 3-point line would give you 4 or even 5 points, and shooting from inside the other team's 3-point line would be worth 7 points. i wonder if you'd start seeing people with football like arms getting into the NBA. It'd give new meaning to full-court press.
