Watch This Kid Drain An Impressive Backwards Buzzer Beater (Video)
In basketball there are buzzer beaters, and then there are backwards, over-the-head, two-handed buzzer beaters taken by clumsy-looking chubby kids.
The video you are about to watch is of the latter variety.
Recently, an eighth grade kid named Matt DeMember made such a shot while playing a game in a co-ed hoops league at Greenridge Baptist Church in Clarksburg, Maryland. Now, it wasn’t a game winning shot. But that doesn’t make it any less incredible.
With time about to expire, the rather unathletic-looking kid took a pass about halfway between the three point arc and the center court line. Then, he just decided to fling it up over his head and hope for the best.
While the ball is in the air, you can hear the buzzer sound. Then you hear that sweet “swish.”
Check it out:
I doubt this kid is going to go on to bigger and better things in the world of sports. However, no matter what, he’ll always be able to watch this video and remember that time he made one of the best buzzer beaters of all time.
Congratulations, Matt. Today you’re the hero of the entire sport-loving world.
