O.J. Mayo was less than two seconds away from being a hero. Alas, Tyreke Evans had other plans:

finally something good to cheer about!! if you dont like that YOU DONT LIKE NBA BASKETBALL
Did the Kings win the Championship? Seems like it…
STFU BIGI. lakers would have celebrated like that if lobe hit that shot. …. celtics if paul hit it, shtt celts had a bigger celebration in the garden when they beat knicks
AMAZING SIMPLY AMAZING SO HAPPY HE DIDN’T SIT OUT THIS GAME THE SHOT WAS AMAZING IT WAS BETTER TO WATCH IT LIVE THEN A REPLAY
wow he was supposed to b out for 4 months and he does this. wow.
Wow, gosh, that was insane
thats unreal, but did anyone else notice Mayo taking 4 steps before he got his shot off!? haha
i felt like crying after seeing it go down. FINALLY something goes our way!
Lol @ reporter walking on to the court thinking game has finished,then being like OH S**T MY BAD!
Kings: happy with a narrow win over the Grizz? set some higher goals people
is that donte greene jumping around on the court from off the bench before the shot went in? hilarious
Sad that some of you can’t just enjoy a great finish to a game, instead poking fun at the teams.
Very Jerry West-esque except it’s worth 3 and he was a little closer. Nice none the less.
Looking at the replay for the first time, it looks like the dude in the Kings sweat-top jumps out onto the court before the buzzer goes off (1.35 onswards).
Then after the 5th replay I still can’t see whether the bench light goes red before he steps onto the floor.
If he DOES – does that make the shot illegitimate?
Regardless, that was a heck of a play sequence by Mayo and Evans.
Okay, now go out on a high and shut him down until he’s healthy.
Tarzan: Hahaha, celebrated YES but jumpin’ to the scores table? That is for the POSTseason…better yet, when you win a championship.
Tarzan: Hahahaha, celebrating YES, but jumpin on the scores table is for the POSTseason. Or better yet, when you win a Championship, ay?
Sorry for the double post!
Sorry for the double post
Hahahaha! AGAIN. I QUIT!
oosign Slips, cynical posts today eh? Hell of a sequence, enjoy, if ur team was dead last and hit a shot like that, ud be screaming too
Amazing moment, amazing shot!
who’s the chick with the orange hair who decided she wanted to try and celebrate with the team?
Wow. I had a little too much Gin last night and fell asleep for the last 4 minutes of the game…dammit.
bigi, why do you care so much about how they celebrate? it was an amazing finish, let them live the moment. i never knew jumping on the scorers table was reserved only for the playoffs.
would you prefer they yawn and give golf claps?
LOL@davidR. Golf CLaps would be pretty funny actually.
golf claps lol.
Yall are some of the most nitpicky posters I’ve seen. analyzing everything but the two great shots that were made. And OJ takes 2 dribbles and then 2 steps, where is the travel?
When your team has lost 7 in a row and is mired in a season full of unrealized expectations and bickering amongst coaches and players alike, a freaking buzzer beating halfcourt shot is reason to celebrate. All the frustration of the season got to come out, if but only for a moment. Also, DMC impressed all with 21 and 16, going doughy toe to doughy toe with Marc Gasol..
These damn Jordan wannabes…
Basketball Gods were just rectifying the no-call on Mayo. The celebration was pure joy and very amusing. Happy for Sacto and their fans.
Wasn’t Reke supposed to be guarded by Mayo on that last shot? If you notice mayo hits the runner then forgets the kings have no timeouts and doesntbpick up full court.
davidR: Why ya hatin’ on golf claps?
I don’t think Mayo travelled. I could be wrong. Poor video quality.
And I agree with Allen.
@J he didn’t travel, 2 dribbles and 2 steps.
I think the Grizz all ran back to the paint to prevent a long pass since there was only a second left.
He made a lucky shot and won a game that has no playoff implications, but lottery implications. Kings needed to lose this game to make sure they have a better chance of winning the draft lottery. Too bad they won and acted like they just won a ring as Kings. BOOK IT!!
where amazing happens
@justbcuz exactly fam
reminds me of myself back in highschool ha
We went crazy cuz that shot was insane. Especially after thinking oj just won it for them. Sure it meant nothing to the outsider other than a highlight, but that was a reason to be happy in a season full of disappointment. And we are still in last place so our bad record and lottery chances are still in tact
i don’t see that 2nd dribble anywhere, even in the HD video
Donte greene is funny, as soon as tyreke lets it go, donte is on the court celebrating, like he saw the angle, and knew it was going in. … How stupid would he have looked if the shot smashed into the backboard?. Great games by zbo and big cuz
Reke the freak, back at work… for old times sake: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SrF0oE94yIg
The most meaningless half court game-winner in NBA history…
Celebrate, if you win a close game especially if you lost so many close games like the Kings.
It’s totally understandable. Everybody who doesn’t understand that is fan of a playoffbound team.
@speedy I’m a fan of a playoff bound team and I totally get it. I’d say those who don’t understand the reaction, don’t understand the game of basketball at all.
Where amazing happens lol. That must have been incredibly disheartening for O.J. Mayo.
