A broken ego is no laughing matter. I once knew a kid who suffered the same injury. Lost to his little sister in a pickup bball game 3-11 in front of a gym filled of friends. He never stepped foot on a court again.
So, while the early estimate of 4 to 6 weeks may seem long, quite frankly, fans should be thankful it’s only 4 to 6 weeks. Especially in light of the fact that Luka even had his team owner taking to twitter to rub the shot in his face:
One of the best shots ever ! https://t.co/84Ac8FOCBA— Mark Cuban (@mcuban) December 21, 2019
But Cuban’s right. The shot was incredible. The young man had absolutely zero warm ups. He was pulled directly onto the court still in his street clothes. Yet he still had the confidence to pull up from twenty two feet out and drain the corner pocket three right in Luka’s face. Legendary. He knew it too. The ice in the veins celebration was an all timer.
It’s safe to say he was feeling himself after the shot:
But when you’re shooting percentage against an NBA all star is 100%, you have every right to have yourself a night! Let’s go, Ethan!
