A list of things that happened during the six seconds where Gerald Henderson didn't inbound this ball

The Wizards held a 104-102 with 15 seconds left in regulation on Tuesday night against the Blazers, before C.J. McCollum hit a jumper to force overtime. But before that play, the Blazers had to call a timeout to avoid being called for a five second violation. Or maybe a six second violation in this case.

It's amazing how time flies, isn't it? A lot changed in the world between when Gerald Henderson got the ball and when he called timeout. Let's look back at what has changed:

  • When Henderson first got the ball, Hillary Clinton was still a lock to win the Michigan primary.
  • When Henderson first got the ball, the "Damn Daniel" videos were still a thing.
  • When Henderson first got the ball, Calvin Johnson was still in Detroit.
  • When Henderson first got the ball, we had no idea who Paul O'Neill was endorsing for the 2016 election.
  • When Henderson first got the ball, RG3 was still in Washington.
  • When Henderson first got the ball, KD2DC was still a real thing.
  • When Henderson first got the ball, John Travolta hadn't agreed to his defining role as an actor as Leonard Shapiro in American Crime Story.
  • When Henderson first got the ball, people still thought Stephen Curry wouldn't do as well in the NBA as his dad did.
  • When Henderson first got the ball, Peyton Manning and Drew Brees' fashion seemed appropriate and normal.
  • When Henderson first got the ball, David Letterman was still hosting Late Night on NBC.
  • When Henderson first got the ball, the NBA was still deciding whether or not adding a three-point line would ruin the game.

Incredible. Really makes you appreciate how precious time is.

If it's any consolation, the Wizards only shot 48 percent from the charity stripe last night, so even if Henderson the violation had been called, odds are the Wizards would have missed a free throw and the Blazers still would have had a good shot to tie the game, so whatever.
