Marcus Smart is making the most of his first NBA offseason, spending time at the youth basketball camp of his Texas alma mater, Flower Mound. As captured by our USA TODAY Sports Media Group Partners For The Win, he started his Tuesday by showcasing proper hoops fundamentals with youngsters, then decided to get a little funky.
Lying flat on his back at midcourt, Smart launched a shot at the hoop … and hit nothing but net. Smart clearly knew it was special, with the Celtics guard celebrating his make with an exaggerated follow-through.
Could he hit it again? Hey, this is Marcus Smart, and he’s wearing his lucky green shoes. Anything is possible, though two-in-a-row lying down at halfcourt might be asking a lot.
