Lucky bounce. I've seen luckier, A few years back, a guy in a highschool game was inbounding the ball from under his own basket, trailing by one with two seconds to play. An opponent and his teammate where jostling for position at the foul line at the other end of the copurt. The guy inbounding throws the ball about 85% of the length of the court to that foul line, where it hits his teammate in the head and goes up and in the basket, to win the game. You could give a guy a million chances to do that again and he couldn't do it.
Was Ralph Sampson's backtip against the Lakers in 1984 a two or a three?
