Rusty ain’t playing.
LOOK AWAY: Steph Curry had a 3-on-1 break against the Clippers, so naturally he pulled up and shot a 3-pointer (and got fouled = 4-point play). That’s not why I posted this GIF though.
Just look at the faces of the crushed Clippers fans in the stands who can do nothing but look away.

THE BEST: Nothing is more Larry Bird than this play
This is, by far, my favorite Larry Bird moment, and a Top 10 NBA Moment Ever in my opinion. The first time I saw this highlight, I gasped.
It’s one thing to know your shot is short. It’s another to know where the rebound’s headed. It’s a third to instinctually and immediately go for the ball, and just patently absurd to switch hands to get the shot off, and make it.
There are a lot of great plays in the NBA, but you will not find ten better than this. It really is breathtaking.
