Here is Marcus Camby’s incredible one-handed full court shot from last night vs. the Sacramento Kings. Although late by at least a second, the surprise swish would have counted as the longest make in NBA history.
In hindsight, he probably would have shown some more urgency in the release — I know I was yelling at my television for Camby to sarcastically “take his time” — but without the careful lob, the shot probably wouldn’t have come close.
Regardless, the shot is a certified playground gem and one of the most entertaining “almost” plays of the season. Kudos to the veteran not known for his offense.
