How Would YOU Handle Your Business 50 Feet Away From the Rim?

In case you missed it from the game, the Thunder’s half-time show was as scintillating as their highlight reel.

The Oklahoman’s Mayberry has a great writeup of the story within the story.

It is kind of sweet to read that Mr. Yanders was so excited that he ran right past two of the highest profile guys in the NBA to find someone he knew. It’s also kind of sweet that two of the highest profile guys in the NBA were thrilled for this  guy and were also taken up in the moment he created.

And to answer my own question, not particularly well. I can understand why he was nervous and originally didn’t want to try.  Standing there 50 feet away from the rim with 18,000 faces waiting for your attempt, trying to will the ball into the rim, the only thing that I imagine goes through your head is, “just don’t embarrass yourself.”
