You are really excelling with your new toy, Michelle! This is a fabulous, fabulous basketball action capture - you caught him perfectly in mid air and I just love the expression on his face! Nice work! Unfortunately, we no longer have season BB tickets, and when we did, they were certainly NOT under the basket! #10520730

Unfortunately I do not know what happened next. Did he land on his feet? Did he pass the ball before he went down? All a mystery. But I was thrilled when I saw this capture!
