Admittedly, I haven't been giving the NBA the attention it deserves this season, so this could totally not be the shot of the year, but with my knowledge of the 2018-19 NBA campaign, it is.
I mean, it's D-Wade in his last year. coming up with a classic prime years D-Wade moment. That's gotta take the cake up to now. The power of nostalgia baby. It's delicate, but potent. S/o Don Draper.
Now that the NFL is over and it's post all-star break, I'm trying to dive back in to basketball, but when you are busy trying to reach these kids it def doesn't help.
TBH C's being the biggest disappointment in the association definitely doesn't either; but hey, ratings are down like 30% so I know it's not just me. Plus the Red Sox and Pats won it all. I'm going to be okay. Guess we can deal with a little reality that not every team wins a championship (although despite how poorly they've played I still feel like they can figure it out)
But with a moment like this I am BACK.
Hol-e-yyyyyy shit Father Prime!!! ( I guess people are calling him Father Prime now?... I fuck with it)
What a sequence!!!
That is such a classic good-ole fashion holy shit highlight. I mean what else can you say? One-footer-fade-away-bank-shot-buzzer-beater-3 after basically getting blocked/losing it ... I still can't really tell.
I did not watch a second of that game so I have no idea how that game-flow went...but it does not matter. Game winner against the two-time defending champs what else do I really need to know?
For D- Wade to hit that shot, against that team, in those uniforms. (The Miami vice look heat jerseys are no exaggeration 839 times better than their normal unis) What an awesome final season moment for guy like Dwyane Wade, who team who's probably not going to the playoffs. I mean might as well call it a career after that.
I must've watched that shot on IG five times before I had to go show my roommate that clip. It was that incredible. Like in person. No tagging or DMs. I got my should be in bed already (thank God for a 2 hour delay at school tomorrow) ass up and showed another human being my phone and for a brief moment we connected.
Wow the power of sports.
