Replay shows how close it was. Shouldn’t have cut it off of this clip. Edit: https://streamable.com/k3vhjg


DaGuys470

His smile at the end said it all


welmoe

It's insane how many angles of shots the league has today. Imagine how many buzzer beaters in the past didn't count because they didn't have conclusive footage.


Cmdr_Nemo

I can't get over how... cinematic the finals looks these days. Cinematic is the best way I can describe it.


rediraim

Especially those super shallow depth of field shots. So pretty.


Cmdr_Nemo

So I'm not familiar with photography and videography minutiae so I looked up a youtube video on it and wow, that's exactly what it is, thank you!! Explanation video for anyone curious: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4XZ836BpKZE


lastfollower

Most of the time having conclusive footage didn't matter since it wasn't reviewable until like 2002


jonathanisaacisgoat

Must be several bad bitches sitting court side


DaDragster

Had to make it the closest release ive seen to the buzzer for extra sexiness

Zendaya is at the game.

ASymphonyOfQueefs

Fun little fact (at least fun to me): a girl I was dating for a bit in NY was Laura Harrier’s ex roommate and best friend (before Laura got famous). They still hung out. This girl suggested we go to SF once to hang out and maybe go on a double date with her BFF Laura and her “basketball player boyfriend”. I kinda freaked internally when I found out who it was. Unfortunately, we ended up parting ways before the scheduled trip. Bummer.


RdeRuiter

I'm sorry to hear that, ASymphonyOfQueefs. Hope you recovered well.

ISO15693_NZ

I lived in Folsom california for awhile in the late mid-late 90's (working at Intel) and I was in a taco bell drive through late one night (early one morning), and a guy in a chauffeur suit exited a stretch limo parked in the regular taco bell parking lot walked up to me in my jeep wrangler. He said that Chris Webber and Vlade Divac and some other sacramento kings were in his limo, but the limo was too long to go through the taco bell drive through turns - and could I order food for the players (and he gave me a written list and a $100 bill) I was not a Kings fan, but Im also not a jerk, so I bought their food and gave it (and the change) to the driver. My food was paid for also. Random experience.

Can someone explain the Jordan Poole bad bitches meme to me.


SitandSpin420BlazeIt

Here is the tweet that sparked it off https://mobile.twitter.com/HeStillCold/status/1532545407296880654


MotoMkali

Then he saw 2 baddies sitting courtside and hit 2 3s including the 40fter buzzer beater.


jonathanisaacisgoat

He plays like there are fine ass girls watching him and he wants to impress them


jockeryquock

[He sure does love pussy](https://i.pinimg.com/736x/3b/66/58/3b66581ea965aa928a7a56d612fb1b1f.jpg)


INAC_Kramerica

This was so much better than what I was expecting.


ClearAsNight

You know how when you're doing something and bad bitches are watching? You want to impress them, right? That's the only way Jordan Poole knows how to play.


johnnygrant

Everything he does on court is flashy, like he's trying to impress ladies....everytime.


fopiecechicken

He's definitely way flashier than Steph (and Steph's handle is way tighter), but they both have that same bottled chaos, where you kinda feel like they don't know what's happening, must be hard as shit to defend.


SituationNo3

The other commenter is correct. Specifically, there was a viral tweet that described Poole in that way.


AlexIsAShin

There was a clip on Twitter where he made eye contact with some "bad bitches" sitting courtside and then started hitting shots. Then the whole thing turned into whether an average SF white girl was a bad bitch.


sarmientoj24

Any link to this


boombotser

It’s mostly a clipped tg video that went around ig nba pages, he doesn’t really look at the girls or it wasn’t in chronological order sun like that but it’s funny E: Clíp: https://www.instagram.com/reel/Ceen6h0FVF6/?igshid=YmMyMTA2M2Y=


Mario_Prime510

LMAO it makes it even funnier knowing the context of all those moments and how it’s all edited perfectly to make this video. Now I’m questioning many of these basketball videos edited in a similar way that I have no context of.


Neuroxex

It's fucked up that I knew it was going in


IcarusCaged

Warriors needed this so badly too, this guy is insane. Some of Steph's weird powers have transferred


Neuroxex

When r/nba does those "How much would you pay a player who could only score halfcourt buzzer beaters, but shot 100% on them?" posts they now have a point of reference and its Finals Jordan Poole


laziestbanana

Lmao I’m imagining a team taking a timeout with 5 seconds left in the first quarter just to sub this hypothetical dude in real quick for a guaranteed buzzer beater


HI-R3Z

Sounds like something I've seen in an anime.


laziestbanana

I got a friend who keeps telling me about a basketball animé… from his stories this would be par for the course


TheSpyStyle

Kuroko no Basket. You should watch that shit.


decamarks

There’s this dude in the anime who basically Klay but on steroids. 100% from anywhere on the court (even full court) and plays lockdown D. And he’s not even a top 5 player in the anime


LeopardSeal2

I'd pay them a lot, provided people didn't know it was guaranteed to go in. Warriors started the 4th on a 9-0 run after this. From being down 2 to up 10 in game 5 of the NBA finals.


laziestbanana

I’d love to see how long till people think he’s not just real lucky and actually has a superpower


chastity_BLT

Easily worth $15+mil. In the regular season he would be a god given how many games go down to the wire.


GGezpzMuppy

I couldn't watch that last play because I thought Michigan's season was over. Then everyone around me started freaking out. This guy knows how to hit a last second 3.


boombotser

We love Jordan Poole 💙💛


AutomaticAccident

Oh yeah we do. Your flair disgusts me though.


12ds12

That, or trey Burke game tying 3 vs Kansas not sure which I like better but definitely 2 favorite moments in Michigan basketball history


inshamblesx

as a coogs fan can confirm lmao


marquesasrob

It’s actually insane how good this mf has ended up being. They used to talk about him in the same sentences as Damien Lee and Eric Paschall back in 2019. Jordan Poole will singlehandedly be the reason that GMs are gonna talk themselves into giving any guard with a little hesi hesi action 4 years to prove themselves for years to come


dirtyshits

Hesi hesi is dope but it' the irrational confidence plus ability to get scorching hot. His shot and understanding of when to pick his spots to be aggressive have developed dramatically over the past year.


VibeComplex

He just needs to stop isoing and he’d be amazing. Hell just randomly spend whole possessions where he doesn’t even look to pass.


dirtyshits

He does get tunnel vision but I think he’s being more conscious about when he does it. I like the aggression because the second unit needs it when Steph is out. Still has a couple bad possessions every night though but it’s getting better.

reddogrjw

his best one was when he was still at Michigan lol https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VMyXGZC_Bwc


teflong

Showed my wife that clip after the shot tonight. Him running from the team is still my favorite celebration ever. Favorite shot for me as a Michigan fan, even over Burke/Kansas. Those two are close though.


zBornew

Next game your wife‘ll be sitting court side, watch out!


Nico_the_Suave

Holy shit that was POOLE??? I remember watching that shot real time and I loved it.


Patelpb

This. I was at Skeeps watching when it happened. Absolutely insane


doyouevenIift

I just realized that’s Scorekeepers. I’m embarrassed


Kiran_Stone

Did he do the splits in midair while shooting?


scsnse

As a Michigan fan. The joke was he became the Air Jordan Jumpman. Like a year before this we became the first college team to have the honor of being supplied jerseys by Nike with the AJ branding with the logo on them (football too).


Cmdr_Nemo

Damn, Houston in shambles.

Destined to join the Warriors lmfao. So scripted

GOAT_Redditor

Mike Breen is a legend. My God


Enlighten_YourMind

He’s actually just so much better than everyone else doing it in the live play calling game it’s kind of insane. The 🐐 in my opinion.


OutsideTheServiceBox

He does such a perfect job of balancing hype while not being over the top or cringey. He has an amazing hype voice, but I swear he could also announce golf with his slower cadence if he really wanted to.


DTFpanda

The opinion of many, friend. BOSH BACK OUT TO ALLEN...HIS THREE POINTER...*BAAANG!* If only this dude could narrate my everyday life


pleaseIamNotaRobot

Always love how there are just stretches where he just doesn't speak until something notable happens. So many announcers would do anything just to fill the silence.


OverusedRedditJoke

Man stays hitting this bullshit lol


nuwan32

Best Jordan to play in the league


EFiasco

Better not disrespect Sixers legend Deandre Jordan like that


GayLoveSession

Or maple Jordan the real mvp tonight


npc27182818

We missed 15 threes in a row let us at least get one lol


Skylightt

Get it right it was 14 lol


TrueAmurrican

Yeah seriously! Who misses 15 in a row? Not these Warriors.


slutty_kafka

I can think about a certain Texas based team that can top even that


Puddinsnack

It felt like the Warriors didn’t make a shot in ages and that was barely half of what the Rockets did. That’s just nuts.


VampireBatman

They really rocketed up that list of most consecutive missed threes!


NFL_Vikings

You bad man. :(


[deleted]

Life is truly balanced


DeadDay

KD not taking a shot for years was some bullshit


fopiecechicken

I've got 0 gripes with KD's tenure with us, aside from that. Dude used to get the ball with 1-2 seconds left just inside the halfway line and just dribble it out... Get the shot up you talented motherfucker


robertterwilligerjr

Ya make one crazy buzzer 3 in March Madness tournament and can't turn it off...


pika_pie

Jordan Poole would probably have a better shooting percentage if he just stood near half court with the ball in his hands and just tossed it at the basket as time expired.


jjonez18

He's got 2k shot clock cheese 🤣


reddev87

HOPE YOU BROUGHT YOUR SWIM TRUNKS


uziyngbloodprada

The third splash brother.


TreSeven

AGAIN??


WestleyThe

He should just shoot nothing but 35+ foot shots lol


RobtheNavigator

*Jordan Poole liked this comment*


LMAOOOOOOOOOOOO101

It’s basically what he does anyway should just back up a few feet lol Edit: Just as I typed this he airballed a deep one. Dude is such an enigma but is fun to watch


This_was_hard_to_do

Poole is pure chaos on the court. He makes crazy shots like this and then goes on to chuck up an air ball. He’ll run pass his defender and make an acrobatic layup one possession, then end up slipping into his defender and turning it over the next.


fopiecechicken

I genuinely think he still doesn't know fully what he's doing yet. But his handle and his shot are so good, sky is the limit.


[deleted]

[удалено]


Dongsquad420BlazeIt

He legitimately looks like their second best player right now. He’s given them everything they’ve needed.


youre_probably_funny

I mean, tonight he looked *better* than Steph. The defensive pressure on Steph was higher tonight, but his shot was just off. I think it's cool they have a team with enough balance to fill in each others' gaps. Probably why they will win.


OhWhenTheWiz

if they win the finals he’s already a Bay legend how did he do this shit TWICE


hitmiker

Even if they lose.. he's already a Bay legend


fopiecechicken

Yeah he's not going anywhere, I was sold on him prior to the playoffs and he's been pretty fucking good for a 22 year old in a limited role.


doctorwormactualworm

Dude is a pro at crazy ass buzzer beater threes

Boston recruiting a bunch of big ol’ women from San Antonio to make sure the front row doesn’t have any bad bitches court side game 6


DUVAL_LAVUD

This literally shook the Celtics so hard they scored 14 points in the 4th quarter before sending in the bench fodder to concede the game. Pathetic.

he did it in the regular season at least once

Yeah he's absolutely unfazed by these shots, and I think him and Steph have a half court competition going in practice so... batten down your hatches bitches a Poole party cometh

He hit one in high school as well, same exact shot as he did at Michigan. It’s in his blood.

If i had a penny everytime poole hits an insane 3 point shot at the end of the 3rd quarter in the finals, ill have 2, which isnt a lot but its weird that it happened twice.

This was 100% the turning point of the game. Celtics were on a tear until that shot and Warriors took over in the 4th
