In the midst of one of D’Angelo Russell’s strongest games of the season, we have to take a moment to appreciate this truly incredible pass from the Los Angeles Lakers guard. How incredible was it, you ask? Well, it not only faked out the defense, but the cameraman as well:

One can almost sense the anxiety in that slow pan over to Jordan Clarkson. That guy knew he had messed up, and was just trying to pan casual. It’s okay, anonymous camera guy, it faked out NBA players too.
