    The Dagger

    The game thread will be coming soon but I thought I'd put together a place where we can cherish the greatest shot in Raptors history (so far?). Add any photos, gifs, videos, memes as you see fit. A little time for celebration before we get back to work

    Having fired up about 5-700 thousand shots in my day, I can honestly say, I have no idea what all the fuss is about, that shot happens ALL the time, just not on a buzzer beater in Game 7. First thing anyone who plays ever says is "shooters roll".

    People calling it "luck" are idiots. Just like every miss was bad luck. SMH

    Would it rattle around or put the perfectly balanced round ball off balance so most shots that are 99% muscle memory, would fail?
    Even if it was built into the fabric of the ball, even a small weight difference of the ball would screw up all regular shots.
    There would have to be a ton of magnet in the ball for the rim to pull it back from a far side kick; it would just stick to the rim and not fall through lol
    Maybe they've invented a weightless super-duper-magnetic spray of some kind

    And the corresponding magnets in the rim would cause every other shot to not bounce appropriately so all the rim-backboard foul shots wouldn't kick up properly....

    Other than that, the theory has merit.

    Now if you look back at the video and they changed out the ball on the prior time-out....and the magnets in the rim could be remotely turned on and off by Masai in the corridor......NOW you got something.

    Would work magnificently for golf too, Tiger is a cheat!
    I mean .. Kyle did rush out after the shot dropped to grab the ball before anyone else could ... he said he did it so give the ball to Kawhi, but I think we're seeing there's a darker twist here.

    And if anyone would have discovered and taken advantage of magnetic rims, it's that squirrely looking Daryl Morey.
