Back in the 90s, when JR Rider accidentally made a no-look 3 pointer by saving a ball out of bounds, I called it the luckiest shot I’ve ever seen.   When Kentucky freshman James Young made the exact same shot but on his own basket, I called it one of the most unlucky shots I’ve ever seen. 

If you want to see the lucky/unlucky kid at UK score for his own team then check out this highlight video.
