Freddie Brown graduated from downtown Milwaukee's Lincoln High School in 1967, where other high schools gave him his nickname "Downtown Freddie" Brown, and he was often am…ongst the top free-point shooters in the league. Downtown Freddie Brown was captain of the SuperSonics' 78-79 NBA championship team. When the three point shot was adopted into the NBA in the 79-80 season, he led the league in 3 point shots, and during this time, it became a saying, referring to "downtown" as a far shot (3 point shot).
Right is wrong. Here is the answer: Superstitions about salt date back to Biblical times when salt was a highly prized commodity. It was expensive, crucial in preserving f…ood, and was often used in lieu of currency. So spilling salt was considered an almost sacrilegious offence, and left one perilously exposed to the devil's machinations. Throwing salt over your shoulder is akin to blessing someone after they've sneezed -- it's a way of keeping the devil at bay while you're in an especially vulnerable moment. Depending on your interpretation, the salt is either intended to blind the devil so he can't witness your error, or keep him from sneaking up on you while you're cleaning up your mess. It's important to note that the superstition calls for the offender to throw salt over the left shoulder. Many ancient traditions place the devil to the left of the straight and narrow path. The classic image of a devil on one shoulder and an angel on the other often shows the sinister imp sitting on the left side. And if you want to really follow the letter of the law, you're encouraged to throw the salt with your "good," or right hand. Throughout history, the association of right with good and left with bad caused a number of perfectly respectable left-handed people to be burned at the stake. Not good.
I'm from Chicago, and have heard this term for over 25 years. We called it a crip' when I was young because 'anybody' should be able to make one; even a crippled person. Hence… the term crip', and in no way a shot at those persons who are handicapped.
When one grabs the ball after a missed shot in basketball they have rebounded the ball.
so people don't think you made it by luck
This is called a hand shot
The shoulder shot is the angle the camera gets of somebody's shoulder in the lower corner of the screen while we (the audience) can see the rest of the scene take place. It is… usually done when two people are talking. To view one person speaking, directors or dp's (director of photography) usually choose an over the shoulder camera shot to get the audience to get a feel of actually being there in the scene with the characters. It's very effective and used often in films. Try noticing how often the next movie you watch uses that type of camera angle
