I Would Make Fun Of Manu Ginobili For This Ridiculous Sequence Of Free Throws If It Wasn't So Relatable
Ahh, that unenviable feeling that you simply can't do anything right. Been there Manu, been there. You have the best of intentions, your execution in following through on them isn't half bad, and it instantly all goes to shit with one proverbial (or in this case literal) bounce of the ball. I know it's hilarious that he missed the one he was supposed to make and made the one he was supposed to miss, but - as far as unintentional points are concerned - that was one of best attempts I have ever seen at not collecting them. That Anthony Mason-esque rocket off the low glass had no business finding the bottom of the net. In fact, I've run the numbers in my head and 95 out of 100 times it doesn't find the bottom of the net. This is one of the few that did manage to defy physics and geometry, and it undoubtedly left Manu Ginobili throwing his head back and muttering "you gotta be fucking kidding me" like every other average asshole who has had one of those days that felt like it was taking place in the backdrop of an Alanis Morissette video. I hope - for his sake - he has an extremely punchable steering wheel, because violence against inanimate objects is really the only way to feel better about that level of continual misfortune.
