Then I watch it again and...
Every once in a while the internet will provide some gold. Last night it was Donatas Motiejunas, a player who our good friend Brian Geltzeiler, The Hoops Critic absolutely loves. A little bit of a luck and a little bit of skill will land you a dribble off your opponents face for an easy lay up. Basketball is all about misdirection. Donatas planned this play the entire way through...
