just missed focus.

with that shallow depth of field, there's no way he AND the wall were going to be in focus. i think the shutter speed would have been adequate to catch him in action based on him, even out of focus.

The shutter speed was Not fast enough.

All you have to do is look at the boy in the background, and you can also see that his tiny movement also motion blurred.

As for the 'Focus Point', my 'guess' would be that it registered for a moment on the foreground boy, but then lost it by the time the shutter opened.

Shutter speed is more than adequate to shoot grammar school basketball.
