WATCH: Slovenian basketballer nails jaw-dropping shot
It sometimes pays to chase a lost cause.
You've probably never heard of Blaz Mahkovic or the Slovenian basketball side he plays for, but the Union Olimpija Ljubljana's name will definitely be making the rounds in basketball circles over the next few weeks.
During an Adriatic League match against Partizan Belgrade, Mahkovic went after a ball destined for the out-of-bounds area when his teammate air balled a three-point shot - and his gamble paid off in dramatic fashion.
With the net behind him, Mahkovic launched his Hail Mary shot into the air - and sank the basket.
Check out the video above and be astounded.
Olimpija went on to win the match comfortably 87-58.
Try and top that, Lebron and Kobe.
