He just had a monster game, like top 5 of all time. I think this moment was after he managed to tie the game to send it to overtime, which he then won.

He’s a young guy who has the energy of a kid who just loves to play ball, which is where the golden retriever comparison comes from.

Thanks for that. I was half expecting there to be a team called the Dallas Golden Boys and he plays “receiver “ or something! What’s his name?

lol you should look up the highlights, the last shot is a miracle in how many things had to go their way. He also single handedly scored 9 points in the last 40 seconds which is almost impossible in todays nba.

Now I get the tippy taps. He wanted to jump up and down, but he had 2 seconds of defense left.

I read that he momentarily thought he won the game cause he got caught up in the excitement.

The guy also admitted later that instead of to tie the game, he thought he won it. So he was doing his cute lil dance my himself while the rest of his team went to play defense. (There was only 1 second left and he quickly got back on defense too, but this lil moment of joy is so fucking pure and cute how could you ever say something negative)

If that's the case, then what if he deliberately missed the game-tying free throw for a chance to outright win the game instead?

How fucking wild would that be if true

Can't tell if kidding but he did deliberately miss the free throw, for the chance to tie it. Free throw is worth 1 point and they were down 2

Yeah, I get it but I doubt that tho, he's smarter than that so I think he just had a lil brain fart when he made the basket. Ya know

But really I see him celebrating and I'm like awwww my lil nephew just scored a goal in soccer and I wanna hug his lil self and Luka (the player) is only 23 .. but then he's like 6 7, over 2 meters tall. Whoa buddy.

Like hugging a mastiff. "You're now in control of this hug please don't hurt me". I'm a very large man, it's rare I see anyone my height let alone my general width, but NBA players are laaarge dudes.

Nah, I love sports. About half my post history is on /r/nffc. I don’t know much about basketball, but this clip was interesting so I asked for more info.

That entire sub, but unironically.
