Top definition
Originally coined by basketball commentators, used to refer to a smart, and conventional move or decision made by a player, usually leading to a good outcome, such as a basket or foul on the opposing side.

When used in everyday speaking, it carries much the same meaning, and is usually used to point out whether or not a decision made was smart and paid off, or stupid and useless.
A: Dude.... I still don't have a date for the prom.
B: Just go ask (average girl) out, I bet she's on the same boat as you.
A: Screw her, I'm going to try asking (much more desired girl) to go.
B: Buddy, there's only a week left, it's not exactly a high percentage play, plus I bet she already has a date.
