There have been some crazy half-court shots these days but Earl Wilson might have one of the best ones out there. He is a manager for the Milford Scarlet Hawks and he has a routine where he attempts such a shot at halftime. On Tuesday night, he managed to nail this no look half-courter.
This video was brought to my attention by our very own Paul Seaver, who is the network manager for our college basketball section. Shameless plug here: If you want to write about college basketball, go ahead and contact Paul. He’s on Twitter at @PaulSeaverRS.
Anyways, let us get back to this shot. Wilson apparently is a legend for things like this but this is the first time I have seen or heard about him. If he keeps making shots like this, he will be known around the nation before long. If there is one thing that people love, it would be crazy trick shots.
Hopefully more people decide to hit the record button when Wilson is stepping out there to do his thing. We need more videos of things like this happening. When a guy like Wilson can make things like this look easy, it just isn’t fair to the rest of us. Then again, not all of us were destined for half-court greatness.
Congrats to Wilson for making such a shot. Hopefully some buzz will build and he can end up on the major sports shows. If this is not a top ten play, I really don’t know what is.
