Chris Walker sinks the back end of a five-point play

I know, I know. You’re saying, “Whaaaaaaat? That can’t happen!” Just watch.

Whistles were blown, play stopped, teammates giggled and Walker didn’t look very amused. I can’t quite figure out the thoughts running through his head as he plops down on the bench, but I welcome any ideas.

Also, how about that stellar defense? Interesting approach from the team in yellow to not only give up the wide open shot from behind the arc, but also to not even come close to boxing out.

    You could have a real five point play. Here’s the layout:

    1. Shoot a three and get fouled.
    2. Miss the foul shot.
    3. Run down the lane and dunk it, like Jones did off a miss earlier this year.

    No time off the clock, 5 points. Boom.

    I see now why Cal hasn’t offered this kid. Geez, not much upstairs.

    I’d say he’s not happy because he probably got called for a technical foul and that is the likely reason he was sent to the bench.

    I really don’t think it has much to do with his IQ level. Just kind of goofing off as he went in for the offensive rebound and he timed it perfect so it was more of just a natural reaction when the ball landed in his hands. Then it looks like the up tight ref called a Tech…probably tryin to help the other team. I would’ve been pissed at a dumb call like that too.

    I mean it’s not like he didn’t see the ball go through the net the first time. Not sure why this play makes him dumb.

    Dunkin’ is a habit. Don’t get near him when he is in dunking mode…he can’t stop it.

    He had to know it went through, as others have said!! I think it is a case of him just not thinking and reacting in a way he shouldn’t have! As for the defense, what defense?? After he shot the 3 it looks like the guys in yellow just assume it will be good and didn’t even go to the boards, making the dunk look worse than it was actually!!

    Finally, you could actually have a 7 point play, as follows:

    1) Player makes a 3 and is fouled.
    2) Player misses the foul shot.
    3) Ball gets tipped back to free throw shooter.
    4) Player then makes another 3.

    It will liikely never happen, but you could continue this trend for even more points!!

    In above post, player makes free throw after second 3 to make the 7 points.

    11) If we’re going to count plays that happen with time running off the clock between them, then theoretically you can score a 100+ play…as long as you keep stealing the ball off the inbound pass.
