Most people who watch basketball believe in the "hot hand": Players who make a shot are more likely to hit the next shot than players who miss a shot (i.e., shots are positively autocorrelated rather than independent). Almost everyone in the sample studied by Thomas Gilovich, Robert Vallone, and Amos Tversky (1985), including several successful professionals, believed in the hot hand.
