Miami Heat guard Mario Chalmers is having a pretty solid night. At the end of the third quarter he had 14 points in 28 minutes. He was five of nine from the field and three of six from behind the arc. On one of those threes he provided one of my favorite GIFs of all time.
He is coming down on the fast break, gets the pass and just stops short of the arc and elevates for the three-point shot. The camera follows the ball and rushes to get back to Chalmers.
When it does, he is still standing there posing with his arm in the air. What is even more awesome or creepy, is that he is looking right at the camera. Though it looks like he is looking through the camera and into my soul.
I have always been fond of cockiness and a little bit of show boating amongst athletes. If it is done right and well. This is subtle, but awesome.
Here is another beautiful three from Chalmers in slow-mo, just because:
