    1. Mad Max (zero conscience, proverbial heat checker)
    .
    .
    .
    .
    2. Rafer Alston (any and all shot attempts, especially 3s and tear drops)
    3. VoHawk (poor man's SWAGGY P)
    4. Ariza (1st stint here, just about everything he tried)
    5. Jeremy Lin (ball handling in traffic, TO waiting to happen)
    6. Deke (all non-dunk attempts)
    7. Francis (And1 mixtape: dribble out shot clock + long fade away 2s)
    8. Barkley (ill-advised 3s early in the shot clock)
    9. Moochie (ISO in final seconds to close out quarters, inexplicable)
    10. Ryan Bowen (any offensive move whatsoever)

    Honorable mention:

    Roderick Rhodes (jumper), Stromile Swift (post ups), Popeye Jones, Charles Jones, Chuck Hayes, Ish Smith, Ron Ron, Joey Dorsey, JSmoove (from 3)

    Yeah, Barkley would shoot some stupid ass 3's, of course when he made it, it was a yes moment. I don't know what it is, I guess I was longing for the no, no, yes moments of old... Haha, lately enjoying when Smith pisses everyone off, but then hits a 3/long shot, haha, keeps me interested, always need that wildcard... As long as it's not in big game I don't really care, then again, if it is a big game, yay! Haha.

    He's the only player I've ever seen step into a FT. He could shoot it fine in practice, but it's a mental thing when he's in a game.

    Negative, Rafer is the #1. I swear though, anytime you screamed nooooooooooo he would make it. I screamed no a lottttt that 22nd game we won against the Lakers. By the end I was screaming "eat him Rafer eat him!" in reference to Sasha Buyabitch.

    Terry, in the sense that I said, No, No, No I don't want him on my team.

    But, to answer OP.

    Maxwell my a longshot (pun intended)

    Did you even read the first name on my list? Mad Max. It's like you are looking for a reason to nit pick.

    More so a "No, no...YES!" moment for me.
    JVG's drag it out style for almost an entire game and then...

    I think it everytime we take a fast break three instead of taking it to the hoop.

    Raven & Another Brother have already mentioned Mario Elle. To me, that was the prototypical "no,no,no...YES" moment, because that's what Rudy was yelling as he ran up the side line to try to stop him. Mario's "kiss of death" shot will always live in Rocket fans memory! :grin:
