Maybe the greatest basketball shot in history

Prep Rally

I'm not sure who this kid is or what team he plays for, or even whether this is real, but if it is, this might be the greatest shot in the history of basketball.

Last week, we featured an Indiana high school sophomore's amazing no-look 3-pointer while saving the ball from going out of bounds, but this video has so many more layers.

If you watch it 100 times, you only leave with more questions. The only thing we think we know for certain -- based on the midcourt logo -- is that this youth basketball game was played at Greenridge Baptist Church in Clarksburg, Md. That's it. As for those questions:

Is this a buzzer beater?

Does the kid even know how much time is on the clock, or is he simply hurling the ball over his head for spits and giggles?

Did this shot win the game?

Or did they just decide to end the game because the shot was so incredible?

Did the coach call a play, or was he just like, "Pass it to No. 50 and see what happens"?

Did they even consider posting No. 50 up on the inside? I mean, he is twice the size of everybody else on the floor.

A few other great moments from this video: The kid in red who puts both hands up to his mouth in astonishment as soon as the ball goes through the hoop, the fact that the two girls sitting next to the camera weren't even paying attention to the greatest shot in basketball history, the kid who can't find anybody to high-five, the random fans celebrating at halfcourt with full embraces and No. 44 in red, who seems psyched that the moment was captured on video and high-fives the kid who hit the shot.

All in all, a great moment caught on film. It's too bad this is a little late for the Oscars.
