View Full Version : If you had one shot, one opportunity

To switch lives with one player for one possession. Who would it be and why?

Any game since the 2000-2001 season NOT including a game in the NBA Finals.

EDIT:
To clarify, your player doesn't have to have taken a shot in that possession (could even be a miss that you think you would make - post#7).

Could be an explosive dunk, a steal, a block (see Ben Wallace block on Shaq post#14), an assist. Or just not have committed a foul (see Ron Artest post #8).

Maybe even punch a player you hate hahaha (Chris Childs) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5No9p9SEY2E - bad quality.

Some of the top of my head:

Robert Horry against Kings - becoming an instant fan favorite in LA

Derek Fisher's .03 against Spurs - one of the most iconic shots ever

Michael Jordan that game winner as a Wizard - must've felt good to get one as a 40 year old

Jeremy Lin vs Toronto at the hype of Linsanity with all of Toronto cheering you on.

Haha i didn't think about missed shots as well. Well to be more flexible:

Ron Artest in that regular season game against the Pistons. I would have not messed with Ben Wallace. No suspension, Pacers would be possible contenders that year (won 64 games year before, Jermaine was 3rd in MVP voting, Artest was Defensive Player of the year). The Pacers organization would have been completely different.

He didnt. Ben Wallace overreacted and made a fool out of himself. They (Pistons) were losing and that unecessary 'retaliation' led to the brawl.

Wouldve kept myself, cool, calm, and collected. For the benefit of the fans, especially the kids that were watching at home.

So yeah, I wouldnt have done something like what Ben Wallace did.

... To seize everything you ever wanted in one moment... Would you capture it or just let it slip?

Yo

His palms are sweaty, knees weak, arms are heavy
There's vomit on his sweater already, mom's spaghetti
He's nervous, but on the surface he looks calm and ready to drop bombs,
But he keeps on forgetting what he wrote down,
The whole crowd goes so loud
He opens his mouth, but the words won't come out
He's choking how, everybody's joking now
The clock's run out, time's up over, bloah!
Snap back to reality, Oh there goes gravity
Oh, there goes Rabbit, he choked
He's so mad, but he won't give up that
Easy, no
He won't have it , he knows his whole back's to these ropes
It don't matter, he's dope
He knows that, but he's broke
He's so stagnant, he knows
When he goes back to his mobile home, that's when it's
Back to the lab again, yo
This whole rhapsody
He better go capture this moment and hope it don't pass him
