Masayuki Kabaya wanted Hideki Mitsui to shoot the rock. Actually, he was daring him to shoot it.

Kabaya had just drained a 3-pointer in their one-on-one basketball semifinal match at the Red Bull King of the Rock Japan tournament Saturday afternoon, and instead of getting in a defensive position, Kabaya put his right hand in Mitsui’s face and motioned for him to shoot, right then and right there, if he had the guts. Mitsui stared Kabaya down, obliged, and drained the bucket as the crowd roared.
