This is because the man does this type of thing all the time, with a kind of contemptuous ease. Watch this and marvel at his ability to make a shot from anywhere, and then consider if maybe having a 4-point line wouldn't be such a bad idea. Watch
At the buzzer!
Speaking of incredibly long shots, here's Team USA Special Olympics athlete Matthew Millett hitting an even longer buzzer beater than Curry's. Read More
A Fairleigh good night
Fairleigh Dickinson made history Tuesday night, as Darnell Edge's seven 3-pointers led the Knights to a comeback win over Prairie View A&M and their first-ever NCAA tournament victory. Watch
