The Isaiah Thomas video is here for everyone to enjoy and all I can say about this is that is officially March Madness.
It's not for the drama in a big game, it's not for big players making big plays, it's not even for the basketball bloodlines involved. It's for the man, the myth, the legend—Gus Johnson.
Johnson automatically puts any big sporting moment over the top and this is no exception. The fact that so many awesome moments happen when he's calling games is a testament to how much the sports gods love us and want us to be happy as fans.
It's only going to get better as the games get bigger, and if that doesn't get you excited for the start of the tournament, nothing will. We will all be printing our brackets out tonight and hoping to get it all right for the start of the big dance.
As for the shot, it was a pure dagger, plain and simple. He knew he was taking it the whole way, tried to break his man down, got the shot off with a hand in his face and sunk it to send Gus into a frenzy.
We congratulate him on the amazing shot, but we also have to thank him for giving us more magic from Gus Johnson. May this be one of the first of many amazing Gus moments over the next couple of weeks.
Here's to the madness continuing.
