Jason Kapono’s Jump Shot Is Illegal
It probably isn’t much of a surprise to you that I’m a big Jason Kapono homer. And acting as such, I’m almost obligated to show you this video. Matt Watson at FanHouse brings to my attention that Jason Kapono can actually get off his jump shot (and make the basket) in under 0.3 seconds — 0.22 to be exact. Now why is that significant? The NBA says there must be at least 0.3 seconds left on the clock in order for a player to legally get off a shot, otherwise the game is over. Don’t believe he can do it? Skip ahead to about the 4:50 mark on the video:
Maybe the NBA needs to get more precise clocks with hundredths of a second on em, and maybe they need to amend that rule to 0.22 seconds or something — the Jason Kapono Rule.
