it still takes skill pull it off though, you got to have a good feel for shooting the ball which durant does
A floater is a very tough shot to truly master and 'luck' is exactly what it's designed for.....So really, I wouldn't call it lucky....Floaters are supposed to be a soft high-arching toss in the air so that you are more likely to get the bounce in your favour. Also, if Marion and Mahinimi didn't force him to take a high arching shot, he wouldn't have shot it as a floater and it would've been a regular elbow jumper for him.

yea you right normal one handed floaters require extreme skill (CP3, D.Rose..etc) but that thing Durant did, it was a jumpshot and halfway up he turned it into a floater, I guess he's comfortable with it cause of his 7'4 wingspan...
and come to think of it I see him do those at least once a game, so yea probably more skill than luck involved for him at least


yall watchin the Jazz & Spurs game right now ??

what a bonehead fckin move, Rondo is getting suspended for bumpin the ref for sure, at least a game if not more....

what the fuck was he thinking ? i cant even wrap my head around what just happened...

they been playing extremely well, poised for a deep run, and he's almost throwing it all away....

watch out for bradley to step it up while Rondo is suspended

^ yup that'll get ya tossed no doubt

fck this is painful to watch, Grizzlies are murderin the Clips...
hittin all their shots and Clips just cant buy a bucket....

they always dig themselves into a hole early and come out hard in the second half though, that's no way to play however won't cut it in the playoffs

Come on Clippers! -just started watching game 1 between the Clippers and Grizzlies.

-got a good chuckle from Zach Randolph after he did his three pushups after gettin fouled down hard by Griffin to the floor. C-Webb said "He wouldn't be able to come back till after halftime" if he did fifty pushups.

-players battling hard in the paint. It's the NBA playoffs!!!
