“Basketball is a fast-paced, frenetic game, but this beautifully-shot black-and-white video shows another side to it through Patty Mills, Australian point guard for the San Antonio Spurs.

If you haven’t watched the series yet, don’t panic, this is a spoiler-free zone. But more importantly, what are you waiting for?”
