This young basketball player finished 2022 on almost the highest notes an athlete can.
Basketball players of all ages dream of winning, but this shot is beyond the wildest dreams of most. Trailing by two points with the final seconds ticking off the clock, the young student was trapped just beyond the half court line with his back to the basket.
He did the only thing he could think of: he lifted it over his head. Everyone froze as they watched the ball sail toward the hoop, the shooter looking on with the same overhead position in which he released the shot.
Somehow, somehow, it got in.
Exactly as drawn!

Bring on 2023
