I can't remember who this player was and my searches on Google didn't help. There was a player, I'm pretty sure it was in the NBA, about 8-10 years ago who made a three-point shot while running out of bounds near midcourt, with his back to the hoop. It was a fluke of course, the guy was just trying to save a loose ball and it happened to go in the net.

Anyone remember it and know who the player was?

Isiah Rider with the Minnesota Timberwolves, but I'm still looking for the highlight clip.

I remember that! Because it was against the Kings.

Also, it apparently won the "Most Outstanding NBA Play of the Year" ESPY for 1995, if that helps anybody find the clip. (Sure didn't help ME.)

Oh, also it's "Isaiah"

JR had so much potential. The East Bay Funk still kicks all kinds of ass.

Damn, I can't find anything on Yahoo video, Google video OR Limewire. I was pretty young when the shot happened (10 or 11, I guess) and was suddenly overcome by an urge to see it again to make sure it really happened and it wasn't some crazy made up memory. At least I know the player anyway. Thanks guys.
