Watch Trevor Booker make the NBA 'Shot of the Year'

In Friday night's game versus the Oklahoma City Thunder, Utah Jazz forward Trevor Booker makes an exceptional trick shot. 

If there's only two-tenths of a second on the shot clock, and you're Trevor Booker, what's your go-to shot?

The no-look, over-your-head, two-handed 'grandma' scoop shot, right?

Boom!

"Are you kidding me!," repeated the NBA TV announcer twice in disbelief. 

Judging by the grin and shrug afterwards, even Utah Jazz forward Booker didn't expect it to go in. 

On Friday night, Utah Jazz forward Gordon Hayward threw Booker a bounce pass on an inbounds play, and Booker did the rest. He did it so spontaneously and accurately that it looked like a set play. 

Unfortunately for the Jazz, the final score was Utah 94 and the Oklahoma City Thunder 99. 

Whenever his NBA career ends, Booker clearly has the potential for a second basketball career as a Harlem Globe Trotter.
