Nope, he doesn't have to win the title to solidify that as one of the greatest plays of all-time. It doesn't need a ring, it speaks for itself.

It was really good and completely crazy but NO WAY is this one of the best buzzer beaters in NBA history.

It's in an ECF game (there are tons of buzzer beaters from the finals).

Not only that, but it was a pretty good look from 3.

It was a great buzzer beater, probably the best of the year until this point, but I can't see this being remembered 50-100 years from now, probably not even 10 years from now.

Again, great shot, amazing shot, probably not one of the best in NBA history though when put in context.

just like they'll all remember this thread that proclaimed it right? Psh, you guys on these boards are so melodramatic. It was a good shot, and it might be worth something if he wins this year, but com'on, it's game 2.

Great shot, I don't think it says anything about Lebron though..

Why didn't they guard him at the perimeter more aggressively, just seems stupid!

Stupid play by the magic, all they had to do was keep lebron from getting the ball. Personally i think the rest of the cavs are scrubs.

I love how just because the Cavs lost game 1 (the only loss in the playoffs) then were losing with 1 second left and everyone says they are easily beatable. Sorry in a 7 game series against LeBron James at least this season, you will not win. Sig that if you have to.

Only 4 Memorable playoffs Buzzer Beaters in this decade.

Fisher's 0.4 Seconds againts the Spurs.
Horry for Three againts the Kings
LeBron over Hedo.
Kobe over Phoenix Suns

It was the best shot in the 2009 NBA Playoffs. If Rose made that shot I am sure Bulls fans are going to overrate their Rookie.

I love Derrick Rose, and he's my 2nd favorite player in the NBA, but Bulls fans should stop b*tching.

So Shut the Fack Up, and Just enjoy the moment because 20 years ago Jordan also hit a Buzzer Beater over Craig Ehlo.

Lebrick James
05-23-2009, 12:24 AM

He makes 1 wild 3 out of 50 tries at the end of a game off an Illegal Pick and everyone licks his rear even more.

Uhh, they gave up a what, 20 point lead? Except for that shot, they would have been 0-2. If the Magic had looked at how the Nuggets double-teamed Kobe on the inbound yesterday, forcing them to go to Derek Fisher, they could have stopped this. As much as it was a great shot, it was a strategic defensive error.

People say they are easily beatable cause they gave up big, double-digit leads to the Magic. That's a fact. Or is that called 'hatin'?

Lebron is a walking legend. He absolutely saved his team from elimination because they were not going to win the series down 0-2. Now it's going to be a long series if the cavs play better. You can't say enough about Lebron.

It's a fact that the Cavs have LOST one game this playoffs and just because of that and because of them giving up the lead tonight they are EASILY beatable. How are they EASILY beatbale is what I am asking? My point is Bron Bron in a 7 game series you will never be EASILY beatable. As long as someone else actually steps up like Mo Williams did tonight in the 4th they won't lose.

after hedo hit the shot before i phoned my friend who goes for cleveland and i laughed at him and he hung up straight away. it backfired cus lebron hit miracle shot in 1 second. as soon as i saw lebron make a break for the three point line my heart sunk.... good shot though

for a second i though orlando was going on to the finals (with DENVER)

if u watched the game the look on Stan Van Gundy's face was priceless after the shot

thapharcyd
05-23-2009, 12:34 AM
Good shot... but I don't see how people are surprised... he had a good look at a 3 with a second left.... i can think of 5 shots this year that were just as good but granted it wasn't playoffs. D-Fish .4 still the best in recent years!

A few notes:

Those who claim the Cavs are easily beatable are insane. They have outplayed the Magic for the majority of both games, only to cough up leads late. This can be a sign of a complacent team or a team who is a bit rusty. I expect the Cavs to dominate the rest of this series because of Lebron James. If the Cavs are so easily beatable, why are the Magic struggling to even keep games close? I know, it's the NBA, every team makes a run, but let's be serious a second. Do you really think the Cavs will cough up 20 point leads nightly? I guess you can ask whether or not the Cavs can get and maintain 20 point leads but I think they have showed that.

Great shot. By the way. 50-100 years? Too soon to tell. But Great Shot. Noting his flaws in this thread is kind of petty and immature

Lebron23
05-23-2009, 12:54 AM

Reggie Miller is also one of the clutchest player of all time. I remember him killing the 1990's Knicks in the playoffs.

Jordan and Miller were the Knicks public enemy 1 and 2. The New York Knicks were one of the best franchise in the 1990's, but right now they are the worst franchise in this decade.

It was a great decision from LeBron to take the last shot instead of passing the ball to his teammates.

yea but we worked our way back in both games and we played harder down the stretch than cleveland did. Lebron bailed them out. If that shot didnt go in everyone would be praising us on how we came back from 23 down to win 2 straight games in cleveland. Everyone doubted we would even win 1 game through this whole series. We may have witnessed king james do something amazing but the whole basketball world is going to witness orlando going to the finals and we will finally get some respect

You do realize they have dominated both ****ing games right? And you do realize that they lost game 1 probably because of rust? And you do realize how Game 1 could have gone for the Cavs just as easily as it did for the Magic? You do realize that the team who deserved to win DID win?

Reggie Miller is also one of the clutchest player of all time. I remember him killing the 1990's Knicks in the playoffs.

Jordan and Miller were the Knicks public enemy 1 and 2. The New York Knicks were one of the best franchise in the 1990's, but right now they are the worst franchise in this decade.

He is, but I still don't get why he was bashing Hedo. Hedo played pretty damn good defense on LBJ and didnt lose him. It was either giving up the lane, or a contested 3....LBJ just made a great shot.

great shot from the best in the world. Orlando has provided a challenge to them, it will only help them in the long run, whether that be in 2 weeks, or next year.
LeBron hit the shot of the 2009 playoffs so far. What an awesome set of conference finals so far. Either one can go any which way!

It's an exciting shot not because of who it is but what it did: It won a must-win game against a great team, it was with one second left and it prevented the Cavs from being demoralized and the Magic from being euphoric heading to Orlando.

Im guessing you mean defender, and not rebounder. But thats the point, I just think it was pretty dumb of Reggie to say that it was terrible defense, when it was pretty good. Not much more you can do.

So you would rather have LBJ take a high percantage shot in the paint, compared to a much lower percentage shot that was pretty nicely contested? Not much Turkoglu could do with LBJ giving him a slight push to get him off of him.

What it boils down to is this: LeBron will be remembered 50-100 years from now. If he misses that shot, they go down 0-2 and have major work ahead. But he makes that shot and thus the series restarts as a best of 5. If this year is LeBrons first championship, there has yet to be a more defining moment. This is the clip they'll play back for years on ESPN, Nike, and Gatorade commercials years from now. This is the LeBron version of "The Shot". Granted, this didn't win them the series.

that shot alone will replace the Jordan-Ehlo as "The Shot" in Cleveland.

If they win this series, that will be seen as the turnaround.

Down by two with exactly one second left, LeBron hits a fadeaway three with a man in his face to save his team from being down 0-2 at HOME.

Master Mind, correct me if I'm wrong, but didn't Jordan get SPANKED that year by Detroit in the Eastern Finals? Somehow that didn't stop everyone from remebering that shot...

Face it, anyone who says this shot isn't going to be remembered is letting their probable hate of LeBron cloud their judgement. LeBron will be remembered as a player for a LONG time, and this will be one of the premier highlights used (the only way it won't be, is if LeBron makes even more spectacular game winners in his career). Your looking at it from the perspective of the game/series/etc. You NEED to look at it from a historical perspective, or one from LeBrons career, this so far is his DEFINING moment (along with his ECF series against the Pistons)...

The reason Kobe's shot against Pheonix won't be as famous is because a lot of his "defining" moments happened while with Shaq and the Championship lakers already...

That clinched the actual series, but probably not as it was just the conferance finals. Lebron's hype may carry it through, but I doubt its spoken of in 50 years.

Down 1-0 and the possibility of going down 2-0 and then going on the ROAD after that.

After every dunk by LeBron or a big shot by a teammate, you either see him pull off a ‘mean-face’ or he laughs and enjoys it. Never again will you see a grown man’s face with that much excitement.

It was really good and completely crazy but NO WAY is this one of the best buzzer beaters in NBA history.

It's in an ECF game (there are tons of buzzer beaters from the finals).

Not only that, but it was a pretty good look from 3.

It was a great buzzer beater, probably the best of the year until this point, but I can't see this being remembered 50-100 years from now, probably not even 10 years from now.

Again, great shot, amazing shot, probably not one of the best in NBA history though when put in context.


Its not the best, but its up there. fade away 3 with a 6'10 guy in your face. Plus everyone says lebron is not clutch and can't win games. Well they can shut up now. (skip brainless)

Actually, the Bulls won in the next round, they lost in the ECF to Det, but your point is valid.

The year Bird stole the ball from Isiah, they didn't win it all.

Jerry West's famous half court buzzer beater happened in a game his team lost.

The NBA is using the Kobe buzzer beater vs the Suns from 06 in their ads. What did they win?

Bottom line, a great clutch play is a great clutch play.

And I think it's funny how people think that Lebrons the only reason that the Cavs win as if he's the only person out there, but it's not even remotely his fault when they blow 20+ point leads.

Can't really call him a finisher- he now has the same amount of playoff game winning buzzer beaters as Big Baby, no? Just because it's Lebron, it seems to 'solidify' his greatness.... a situation that they shouldn't have even been in if the Cavs hadn't blown a huge lead two games in a row. And I think it's funny how people think that Lebrons the only reason that the Cavs win as if he's the only person out there, but it's not even remotely his fault when they blow 20+ point leads.

Seriously :clap:

Actually, the Bulls won in the next round, they lost in the ECF to Det, but your point is valid.

The year Bird stole the ball from Isiah, they didn't win it all.

Jerry West's famous half court buzzer beater happened in a game his team lost.

The NBA is using the Kobe buzzer beater vs the Suns from 06 in their ads. What did they win?

Bottom line, a great clutch play is a great clutch play.

Ninja edit got me: you caught/fixed the part about the Bulls losing the next round.

LeBron James game winning three pointer against the Magic was the best shot of his career, and puts an exclamation point on his MVP season. He finally showed he's a "finisher" like Kobe and Jordan, even though you can count the number of game winners he's hit on one hand. He finally did not pass the ball at the end of the game to one of his unreliable teammates. With all the hype about this shot there's going to be in the next few days, I see this shot being very similar to the shot that Kobe hit against the Phoenix Suns in the first round of the 2006 playoffs to take a 3-1 lead. The city was fired up for a few days, but the Lakers went on to lose the next three games by and average margin of 18 points. The fact of the matter is, LeBron bailed out the entire city of Cleavland, and his overrated, sub par supporting cast who can't keep a big lead. The Cavs weren't challenged all year long at home, and they were one second away from losing two straight games in the Eastern Conference Finals, and giving up their hopes of an NBA title. Even though this is a win for the Cavs, to me its a loss. This team blew a 23 point lead, and found themselves down by 2 with one second left because of a great shot by Hedo Turkoglu, who has already proved that he can hit the big shot. The Magic should look at this game as a win. They stole a game in Cleavland from a team who's basically lost one game at home all year, and was undefeated in the playoffs. They are heading back to their home gym with the confidence that they can beat this team, even when LeBron has 49 points. Their role players will play better, and the home crowd will be fired up. To me, these two games show that Orlando is the better team, isn't afraid of coming back from big deficits, and will win this series in the end.

LeBron is currently averaging 34.7 points, 8.8 rebounds, and 6.7 assists for the playoffs.

AVERAGING.

He's shooting 55% from the field, 38% from outside, and 75% from the line.

While using 36% of his team's possessions, which is an otherworldly number. To compare, it's 2% less than the percentage of possessions Kobe used on route to averaging 35 a game.

He has a PER in these playoffs of 41.5.

41.5.

The highest ever in a single season is 31.7.



If you have any doubt that LeBron is the best player in the league, I suggest you move out of Los Angeles and into the real world.

Dunno if anyone has mentioned this yet, but is Lebron's shot more epic than Fisher's shot vs.the Spurs in 2004 on the inbound with 0.4 seconds left ? Or even Duncan's shot in that game, a fade away from the top of the key over Shaq and Malone....

Either way it was an epic shot by Lebron, I dunno if we can say best ever though, I think that's gotta go to Fisher, or even Horry vs the Kings off Vlade's clear.

I forgot that the playoffs were over. Rolling over two teams in sweeps is bound to create inflated numbers, he's just barely 2 games into the conference finals which is obviously the most trouble he's seen thus far in the playoffs, with the most difficult games on the road coming up and should he win, a more difficult team in the finals remaining. If he can continue these averages past the ECF and into the finals then yes, those numbers are incredible. But as of now you're basing a PER rating off of 10 games which to some team's playoff runs still leave you in game 3 of their second series. The smaller the sample size, and without the sample being taken into context, the easier it is to be amazed by incredible averages.

You're right that it is a small sample size and as a resultant inflated averages can occur, but even in just a ten game span the fact that he's had such a ridiculously high rating is remarkable.
On top of that, there is absolutely no indication of him slowing down.

I also like Charlie Villanueva because at 6'11". He can also play the SF and PF Position, and this year he had a breakout performance in the Regular Season after he averaged 16.7 ppg, and 6.9 rpg in less than 27 Minutes.

Z is already 35 yrs.old, and I think he should come off the bench for the Cavs.

I'll quote a buddy from the Knicks forum:


In terms of Lopez and Gordon, I think its an unfair comparison because both of two reasons...1) they weren't competing for PT with anyone and 2) they were healthy thus = a decent rookie season. In Gallo's defense, he played behind Harrington, Chandler etc and was injured since the 2nd game of summer league.

In terms of Bayless, I'm glad we didn't draft him. There's no reason we needed another shoot first "pg" on our team. Yeah he killed in Summer league but did you see how many assists he had? I think it was like 1.2 per game or something crazy. That's exactly not the type of player we needed, esp from a "pg".

The draft is a tough call esp when you're the Knicks who need to fill so many positions. But I believe Walsh/Dantoni made the right call in drafting the best talent rather than to fill a need. If he can stay healthy, Gallo will turn out to be much better than Bayless in the long run for our team.



Gallo's ceiling is unknown, I never said he'd be the savior of the Knicks but he's shown himself to be a great player even without one of his number one asset, speed and ball-handling with his 6'10 frame, instead he's subsisted on an incredible shooting touch.

But this thread isn't about Gallinari or the Knicks so...back on topic.

He already have a back injury at the age of 21 yrs.old. Even if he recover from his injuries I don't think he's going to be an effective player in the NBA because he depends on his Outside Shooting.

He had a back injury because a washed up grown up playing in a kid's courtyard ("Tractor" Traylor) injured him on a terrible foul.

He's not one dimensional whatsoever. He has the handles of a guard, can shoot as good if not better than Dirk or Peja except he can also cross over his defender and drive in the lane as well, if he can't get to the hoop he'll just pull up from mid-range and at 6'10 no one guarding him will be able to contest it. If they put anyone near his height to defend him he'll blow right by them.

Example of when a PF or larger is placed as a defender on him:

Did Labron made a great shot, yes, no doubt about it, this shot will do wonder for him at game ending time from now on. But Magic coach SVG didn't make the right defense call.
How u defend the last inbound play all depend on how much time left and whether u are up or down by how many points. If a few second left or you are down you need to pressure and defend the passer, because the inbound passer could receive the ball back and become the shooter,
Last night's game Magic was up by two, and most importantly it is only one second left, the inbound passer don't have time to get the ball back and shoot, the one who received the inbound must shoot. Everyone knows the ball is going to Lebron, so the most logical defense is don't guard the inbound passer, double Lebron from start and denied the ball. It's much easy to use double team to denied the inbound pass to Lebron than double Lebron after he caught the inbound cleanly.
The three keys for this defense play are...
1, Magic up by two.
2. Only one second left.
3. Cavs has a player called Lebron James, just like Lakers has a player called Kobe.
I hope some sports media ask SVG what would be the defense play if he could do it again. I believe this will be the defense play!

I'd show him running at full speed in Euroleagues but then you'd probably just discredit the level of play and defense. We'll see what happens in due time, it's too early to call him a bust or potential star of any kind just like it's too early to call this buzzer beater one of the all-time greats, though both Gallinari and this shot have the potential to be as good as some people can predict them to be.
