  • Niles makes a basket at half court, and lets it go to his head.

    Frasier gets tickets to a Sonics game, and takes his dad and Niles with him, throughout the game Frasier and Niles get bored, play a game and constantly switch seats, but when Niles' seat number is called, he goes down to the court to make a shot at half court, and he makes it.

    Frasier is happy for Niles at first, but then Niles starts getting gifts, and starts telling the story, stretching it each time he tells it.

    Frasier gets fed up with it, and challenges to a free throw, and Frasier's theory that Niles' free throw was just luck, proves right, and he loses all creditability.

    Great episode, I love the ending, where Niles and Frasier try and make baskets and one of the balls hits Martin's drink, just as he gets it causing him to have to buy another one, pure classic.
