Russian Basketball Coach Makes Highly Illegal, Highly Awesome Play

It was just your average half court set by the UNICS Kazan of Russia’s PBL basketball league, until the point guard passed it around the horn into a pair of unexpected hands. “UNBELIEVABLE!” writes the Russian fellow who uploaded the footage. “A Russian basketball coach has the assist of the year as his team score a three pointer.”

Unfortunately, head coach Gundars Vetra’s UNICS (we know, we know — there’s a team named UNICS, in all caps) ultimately fell to the Spartak Primorie, as the three pointer did not count. Also, the video lacked a Stephon Marbury, Vladimir Putin, Allen Iverson or Adam Morrison cameo as we had hoped. Nevertheless, a great play and the crowd lapped it up. Check it.
