During a third quarter timeout in Thursday night’s prime time tilt between the San Antonio Spurs and Los Angeles Clippers at STAPLES Center, one lucky fan was afforded the opportunity to put his long shot-making skills on display in front of the crowd and thankfully for us, the TNT cameras. The task presented to this Los Angeles Clippers fan was simple: Make a shot from half-court, win a car. Miss the shot, a set of steak knives. Airball it? He’s tarred and feathered and chased out of STAPLES Center with fans armed with torches and pitchforks.

Is it better to have Ricky Davis or Larry Hughes shooting the ball?

Larry Hughes and Ricky Davis. If your team was considering signing one of them then you are in big time trouble. These guys shoot more often than Ron Jeremy and they put the “shooting” in shooting guard. They are the NBA’s version of a “gunslinger”. So the question that we know is on the minds of so many NBA fans: if your team had to sign one of these guys which would be...
