Michael Jordan THE SHOT on Ehlo

@BleacherReport It's as legendary a shot as Jordan ever made, yet he claims that he never saw the ball hit the bottom of the net. I never saw it go in, but I knew right away from the crowd reaction—silence—that it was good." Jordan smiled slightly. "Then I did something maybe I shouldn't have. I really celebrated and shouted, "It's over!' I really felt justice was served. Watching the clip again and again almost makes it seem impossible that he didn't see it, although there is a slight turn of his head right as the ball is above the rim, so maybe that just put the shot out of his line of sight. There's also the chance the adrenaline was so much that Jordan just zoned past the ball and focused on the crowd. That realization doesn't necessarily make the shot any better, but for some reason, it still seems amazing.

I agree. how clutch is he?
it definitely looks like he saw it go through the net. maybe he was just overwhelmed and his emotions took over so he doesn't remember

The slow death of the fan forum
Way back before the web turned into the behemoth it presently is, football fanzines were the objective for fan remark and conversation. Back during the 1990s, Football Forums started to succeed and develop, with very much run autonomous locales viably supplanting fanzines in the mind of football fans hoping to impart their insights and talk about their clubs with their kindred fans. Yet, a look at fan discussions nowadays (and the fan forums for my own club, Gillingham FC, specifically) recommends things are particularly on the wind down. The football gathering is gradually vanishing, and it’s bit by bit being supplanted by web-based media. Before we shut it down last year the Gills365 Forum was performing unequivocally contrasted with different Gills forums out there, yet it was as yet in consistent decay contrasted with past seasons as far as the volume, profundity and level of conversation. Taking a gander at different discussions apparently to be a comparative story, with just a modest bunch of clients — and sometimes only a few — giving the main part of the movement on the loads up. Also, the actual club shut down their discussions subsequent to letting what was before a flourishing local area separate and vanish through an absence of consideration. 10 years prior certain Gills discussions would handily pull in more than 200–300 posts each week. A little while these days you could separate that number by 10. The justification for this can be found in the manner individuals utilize the web to impart nowadays. Forums may have been the go-to places for all football visits and discussion, thinking back to the 1990s and mid 2000s, however we now live in the realm of web-based media, and the conversation has moved to organizations like Facebook and Twitter. Facebook bunches permit a comparable assemblage of fans on an objective page, however with an all around perceived stage and without the requirement for any kind of specialized nous. Setting up a gathering page is simple, and on the off chance that you can get individuals you need onto it routinely, you’ll have a hive of conversation and action in two or three weeks. Then, at that point there’s Twitter. It’s my online media outlet of decision, and is significantly more prompt and live than Facebook. Twitter dominates during live occasions, as fans can in a flash share their interpretation of occasions, as they occur, and continuously. It’s something we exploited effectively on Gills365, which was the principal Gills outlet anyplace to accept online media. Our #gills365 hashtag demonstrated tremendously well known during matches specifically, with fans at the ground tweeting their updates adding #gills365 to their tweets to allow ousted allies to finish the activity with a totaled feed of the multitude of inhabitant fans’ updates. All the more as of late fans have begun making their own networks on Facebook, and there are several very much upheld conversation bunches on Facebook where individuals can impart their perspectives to individual fans. The two stages have a lot to bring to the table. Facebook offers all the more a local area building angle, though Twitter is considerably more ‘at the time’. The development in prominence of both has implied football fans have floated towards them, as opposed to fan gatherings, for their football conversations. Twitter permits fans the chance to peruse and react straightforwardly to writers, media sources and even players themselves, and has given an additional measurement to the game as those columnists and players who decide to do so assist with narrowing the hole between the expert game and its fans. With Facebook offering suitable, free, options in contrast to gatherings, and Twitter offering the capacity to remark and impart insights live and continuously, the time of the fan discussion would seem to have passed.
Steph Curry Broke The Way Video Games Are Made
I know that title seems a little hyperbolic but it's absolutely, 100% true. If you know anything about basketball or if you're friends with anyone who knows anything about basketball, then they probably talk about how much of a beast Steph Curry is on the court. He hits 3-pointers from way beyond the arc and he's consistent with it. And I can see the look on your face, you're like, "Paul what the fuck does this have to do with video games?" Well, Curry's performance this season (in real life) has just broken the way NBA2K builds their video games. In a recent interview with Forbes, Mike Wang (gameplay director of the NBA2K games) said, that they're "looking for new ways to translate his [Curry's] game into 2K". As an avid fan and player of the NBA2K games, I know first hand that they've come up with formulas and rules for the game so the game feels like a realistic basketball game. In the most recent iteration, shot selection is a big factor in making shots. But -- if you watch Curry play -- his shot selection is, sometimes, insane. But that doesn't translate to the video game, like, at all. ESPN even ran an article titled, "Real-life Stephen Curry is better than video-game Stephen Curry" which compares Curry's real stats to simulated video game stats and Steph Curry in real life does consistently better than the video game version of him. And it seems like the next iteration of the NBA2K series will have some careful consideration when they start designing the way Curry plays in-game. If you watch the first minute of the video above (which is from a game that just happened a couple of days ago), you'll see Curry make a 3-point shot with two defenders on him. If you were to do this in NBA2K as Steph Curry, you'd most likely miss. It's insane to me that because of his skill, the people that work on 2K have to develop new ways to deal with his on-court skill. It's kind of insane (and awesome and amazing) to me that Stepch Curry is better than an artificial version of himself who, by all means, should be better. Mostly because it's an AI that doesn't get tired or have thoughts or anything else like that. It's kind of breathtaking, to be honest. And I'm sort of happy to be alive during this sports-historic moment in time. All of that being said, I guess the color-commentators need to stop comparing Curry's skill to something that's "video game-like" instead of saying it's unbelievable because, well, the best basketball video game (and its developer) can't believe it either.
Can 'Crying Michael Jordan' get you sued?
The Crying Micheal Jordan Meme was by far one of the best things to come out of 2015. Social media kingpins relentlessly attack famous people across the globe at their weakest moments with a crying MJ meme centered around their latest blunder. It's pretty low, but I must say, it's pretty damn funny. "It just seems to have an appropriateness for so many different circumstances," said Andrew Selepak, director of the social media graduate program at the University of Florida's College of Journalism and Communications. "That face can be used for a meme for a number of different levels, whether it's sports or non-sports related. But because of the passion people have for sports, I think it has legs like few other memes that have been popular in the past." It's had an amazing amount of staying power, and like most things that have this type of power, often comes dollars. So when money gets involved, who owns the rights to this? Could a person be sued over the Crying meme? The Associated Press could pursue legal action if it believes its copyright of the image has been violated. "We own the rights in our photo, which was taken in 2009," Associated Press spokesman Paul Colford wrote in an email to ESPN.com. "We could enforce those rights depending on the use and other factors, as is the case with all AP photos." Likewise, Jordan spokesperson Estee Portnoy recently implied that the basketball icon's camp is keeping a close eye on usage of the meme. "We haven't seen anyone using it to promote their commercial interests, which is something that we're monitoring," Portnoy wrote in an email to the Chicago Tribune. So be careful about letting loose a signature Crying Micheal Jordan meme, it could cost you some dollars down the line.
