Behold: Hawks fan delivers the greatest half-court miss you’ll ever see (VIDEO)

Ball Don't Lie

You've seen a hundred half-court heaves for cash, but you've never seen one quite like this. During halftime of the Atlanta Hawks' Friday night matchup with the Utah Jazz, a Hawks fan stuck the ball on the edge of the rim from half-court. Pretty impressive stuff, yes?

The ball was obviously a bit deflated from NBA standards; either that, or our man Kevin managed an against-all-odds dead-on corner wedge between the rim and the backboard. It's reminiscent of those old carnival games where the ball is just the tiniest bit smaller than the hoop. (Chances are the fans would have noticed if the Hawks had brought out a whole different hoop.)

Anyway, congrats to Kevin, and he might get a coaching job out of this. The Washington Wizards are wondering how he was able to get the ball so close to the rim from that far out.
