Video: Besiktas Shocked by Controversial Buzzer-Beater

A German club called Gottingen handed Allen Iverson’s Besiktas squad its second loss in Euro Cup play yesterday with a last-second buzzer beater. Trent Meacham, a 25-year-old guard from the University of Illinois, defended the shot, got the rebound, dribbled coast-to-coast and drilled the game-winner (or what Germans call a ‘Teufelskerl’).

The Turks have filed an official complaint (the game clock seems to have stalled within the last 19 seconds), but the fact remains that, in three games so far, the 35-year-old “Answer” has conceded three defeats.

    i was at that game, and there was definitly something wrong with the clock. it skipped a few times.

    iverson was really unimpresive and did not got into the flow of the game. in fact besiktas played it’s best with iverson on the bench.

    Weird ending but AI played well this game, in 30 minutes he had I think 18 points and is slowly starting to learn the style of European play, he just needs to stay agressive.

  • burnt_chicken

    equating germans of today to nazis is an assinine and idiotic move. your attempt at humour is appalling and shameful, benno.

  • Stillballin

    19 seconds left on the game clock, the shot clock should be off. But put 14 seconds on shot clock, that’s why chatman had the rush the shot. That gives gottingen 5 seconds to make the last shot. They call that the “buzzer cheater”.. Ai did good!!

    Co-sign burnt_chicken

  • LD

    I’m glad they pointed the camera at the scoreboard for a second, because the score and clock at the bottom of the screen wasn’t enough information for me.

  • Oli

    ditto what SIMON SAYS
    wanna know how us germans use to call a buzzer-beater? BUZZER-BEATER!
    and please stop calling us nazis!

  • JD

    Yh Benno i’m British and even think that the whole Nazi thing is a little out i mean we never jump to the assumption that all Americans are in the KKK same principle

  • max

    lol co-sign simon and oli. I might just call buzzer-beaters “one hell of a guy”, oh wait… that doesn’t make any sense…

  • http://www.fiba.com Darksaber

    Hahahaaaa, Teufelskerl equals buzzer beater on Slamonline? Not even Google translator could have effed up that one so badly. Nice try though.
    (Teufelskerl = one hell of a guy or daredevil = the guy who made the shot, not the shot itself)

    SLAM you need to delete the first comment. Right now.

  • http://yahoo.com Eboy

    a win is a win so…

  • emre

    How are thats refeeree?

  • Dre Baller

    sad that AI doesn’t even get to take the last shot for that team

  • http://www.mvp247.com Greg Tanner

    All sorts of bullsh!t going on here.

    Firstly, the game clock should have expired.

    Secondly – Germans obviously don’t use that word for “buzzer-beater”

    Thirdly – the Nazi comments need to be deleted.

  • Teufelskerl

    Besides that hilarious insider “Teufelskerl” which backfired in a big way, cause people dont even care enough to google that word, ist sad that Iverson lands on a totally crap team that Besiktas is. No offense but from its 6 coaches to all but 1 teammate: that team suckx in a big way. And its Göttingen, not Gottingen.
    @benno: your attempt at being funny also backfired in a big way. Google that too….

  • Teufelskerl

    @Dre Baller: because that team is really really BAD and has no good coaches too.

  • Jelte

    slam still did not delete it…. shame on you

  • Ken

    Yeah, the nazi comments are idiotic. Harder to make yourself look like an idiot than that.

  • benno

    burnt chicken is a jew i’m surprised your name isn’t burnt kosher chicken

  • The Philosopher

    Dave von Boom?
    Another cool ass name.

  • benno

    @ken – your name is ken, i can not take you seriouly. AND you alll are taking this comment WAY too seriously. If you where english you would find it funny! Dumb fat americans! Your just a bunch of free masons

  • max

    GAME 7, NBA FINALS ’11-
    Boston is in the lead by 2. Kobe dribbles around the perimeter. A nifty crossover to get rid of Pierce. 3-2, pump-fake to send Rondo flying. -1 Kobe Bryant takes the shot… It’s looking good… IT’S IN!!! KOBE BRYANT secures his spot as one of the Top 5 players of all-time with another great TEUFELSKERL!!!

  • http://www.need4sheed.com Tarzan Cooper

    obviously way late. david hasselhoff is involved

  • MattEffect

    how can someone possibly not take a comment seriously in which he is compared to a nazi but as a joke? literally impossible.
    I was at that game,too. and even tho I’m pro Göttingen, I think the game should be replayed…

  • Yassi

    @benno: if you “where” german, you`d know how to spell.

  • JD

    benno i am english and i dont find it funny it’d only be funny if it was actually funny but same old nazis always cheating isnt original or funny.

  • rikson

    “it’d only be funny if it was actually funny but same old nazis always cheating isnt original or funny.” -> love that line!

  • http://slamonline.com YKnot

    Chapman dribbled out the clock like his name was AI. Lol

  • León
