The football hit him in the shoulder..... he is pulling a ginobli (flopping) and probably trying to get some money out of it.
Whoa! I think you might be right. It definitely looks like it hit him in the shoulder, but he immediately grabs his eye without any hesitation. He's either a really good actor or it deflected off his shoulder into his eye and you just can't really tell in the video. Need some super slo mo.
Nice find. I wonder how they determine when a given animated gif appeared?
The word you are looking for is very probably "complement", not "compliment". As in "Favors and Kanter will likely complement each other nicely". Although... depending on how impressive a given play is, they may compliment each other nicely as well.
