That's such a tough call. I'd like to say it counted...but that's feels like such a retarded loss for the other team, and such a shallow win for the winning one.

To my knowledge, the ball just has to be THROWN before the timer goes off, not actually make it into the basket. Someone knowledgeable please quote the exact rules if you get a chance.

it should certainly count in my opinion, id be pissed if I threw that and it didn't count. If it was ten years from now and I had a kid that threw that shot and it wasn't counted I would have been on that court in a fraction of a second making the biggest scene ever.

As far as the buzzer it counts provided it does not hit the floor and it is not touched by a person, given that neither of those two events happen then the game is still live until one of those two events happen.

Also the ref may have thought the ball did not leave the kids hand until after the buzzer or during the buzzer, you don't know what went on in his head and the call could easily have been overturned after that.

It didn't count because the ball hit both the ceiling and the rope before going in.


But MAN!

I lol'd. Sadly that's about all I got to say tho cuz that shot wasn't even meant to go in, the kid just threw it as a last pathetic attempt that went in against all odds.

It made it to something like CNN's top 5 non-professional sports plays.

As #1 :p

(To make it seem more amazing, they told everyone that it made them win the game; too bad for the quality though... people can't recognize his face to gratz him.)
