Top Definition
A shot in basketball where a smaller offensive player floats the basketball over taller defenders who swat helplessly at air attempting to block it. Also known as a teardrop or floater, the term was coined by La Salle guard Tyrone Garland, who honed the craft of this shot as a youth on the rugged streets of Southwest Philly. He ended Ole Miss's Sweet Sixteen dreams by dropping the SW Philly Floater on them for a game winner in the 2013 NCAA Basketball Tournament, making him an instant Philly hoops legend.
OH SNAP! LA SALLE JUST MADE THE SWEET 16! TY GARLAND DROPPED THE SOUTHWEST PHILLY FLOATER ON 'EM! MARSHALL HENDERSON AIN'T GOT S$*% ON US!!
