What a Big Shot!


No, I’m not talking about Trump —

Damn it! I told myself I was not going to write anything about our Dictator-in-waiting today.

Oh well.


The Wall Street Journal just named Cleveland Cavaliers’ Kyrie Irving’s Game 7 shot in last year’s NBA Finals as the biggest in NBA history.
