According to Hunter S. Thompson (Literary genius and American hero), an idiot who coined the basketball term, "FROM DOWNTOWN!" He was covering the NBA Finals for CBS-TV in the early 1980s, when Musburger changed the language of sports forever when he kept repeating this ignorant notion that any basketball player firing off a long 3-point shot is shooting from "downtown."
"From way downtown!"
"Another one from Downtown!"
-Brent Musburger
