Remember Mike & Larrys famous McDonalds commerical where they are playing "Horse" for Mike's Big Mac?
The first few shots were cool, over the backboard, the kneeling 3-pointer, seemed plausible...
Doubt crept in as the fullcourt jumpers swished in a little too easy. By the time Larry Bird and Michael Jordan started calling bank off the scoreboard and through windows, well, there wasn't much question the shots were made in the editing room, not on the court...
Now Denis Clemente's shot... the one that generated 5,000 views in one day on YouTube, Believe it.
Over the backboard, off the scoreboard, off the floor, nothing but net -- all real.
No director, no Big Mac on the line, no post-production splicing.
Just two Kansas State players engaged in a game of H-O-R-S-E, one with a video camera rolling, the other pulling off the kind of shot that should have been worth at least 2 letters.
