Lordosis is a basketball term for when the player shoots the ball from under the basket, contorting their spine in spectacular fashion so as to score. The term originally described the change in spinal shape typically found in pregnant women, but since the word has the word "lord" in it, using the term implies that the player who scored the basket possessed - if only for a moment - divine finesse.
