I hate Kobe but that was GOOD!

I was playing in a game once and drove baseline but got cut off, i threw it off an opposition players legs out of bounds. As I was passing it back in, he said I should have just done a Larry Bird and shot it over the backboard.

I inbounded the ball and it got deflected, i jumped back in bounds and caught the ball but was falling out, so this time I shot it over the backboard, like Larry Bird, and made it!
