Watch Vlade Divac make a backwards, half-court shot like it's no big deal

September 18, 2017

Between a feathery shooting touch and a knack for no-look passes out of the post, Vlade Divac was always somewhat of a wizard as a big man. What the Sacramento Kings general manager showed a group of kids at a basketball clinic over the weekend, though, was sheer magic.

Watch as Divac takes a basketball, turns his back to the hoop, and casually drains a half-court shot over his head:

As a 35-year-old adult, I'm beyond impressed. But imagine if you're one of those kids? They just saw a real-life giant make a seemingly impossible shot.

Good stuff, Vlade. Now if only that magical touch extended to putting together a competitive roster, the Kings would be in business this season.
