Rejected Basketball GIF

GIF from a basketball game in which a player is aggressively going for the basket, and someone jumps to block him,. He freezes and waits for the player to pass over him, and then shoots. Gets REJECTED by same player that flew overhead, and ball goes flying to the other side of the court.

PLEASE NOTE: This play is not 'goal-tending' because the ball was still in an upwards arch when it was knocked out of it's flight on an upwards path, not while coming down. Had it been blocked while heading downwards, it would be goal-tending, fo' sure.
