“I thought (the shot) was cash. Probably saved me $50,000, though, because I was going to dance when that ball went in. So, I’m glad we still got the win and got to keep my money in.” my pocket.”
With the score tied at 111 points, Green launched a 28-foot 3-point attempt with one second remaining in the fourth quarter. As the final buzzer rang, the basketball bounced off the rim.
If Green had made the shot, he said he would have danced all over the court, à la Sam Cassel.
“Sam I’m, all the way down the court. I was going for it, and it bounced. I can’t waste my money now. But I was going to waste it then, and I’m gonna get every penny’s worth.” But unfortunately, it got rolled.”
