Watch ESPN. That's all I can say. Words cannot describe what my eyes just saw. It will be known as one of the greatest shots in NBA history, no question about it.

Wow, this thread came instantly!
In opposite to the call, whether the ultimate 40-foot buzzer beater was released in time. It was!

There was a BS foul call on Devin with 1.8s left that sent Iggy to the line- Sixers went up 1. Inbound the ball to Devin, he runs up the court, fouled without a call. He temporarily lost the ball, got it back, flung it from behind half court. SWOOSH. Refs review it and the first frame the ball is out of his hands, the light is on and the time has run out. Basket counts, Nets win. My description in no way does the shot justice.

This. Fantastic shot, but nowhere near one of the "greatest shots ever."

It's a pretty good shot, but it's a lucky shot too.
It just so happens to Devin and it's just another example of how the world has ended in Dallas and Jason Kidd sucks...yawn

Pathetic how he tried to buy a call before getting the lucky ass desperation heave up in the air.

From the replay whoever is guarding him fouled him. Got him right on the arm/hand.

He WAS fouled. If you had watched the game, you would have seen the pathetic call Iggy got right before that. The game should have gone to OT, but Iggy went to the line and then Devin had the crazy shot.

Even Dirk has admitted this much. Teams should avoid Avery like the plague.

Pathetic is how some people are trying to redicule and play down everything Harris does. Hes no superstar but Id definitly take him over an old, nonscoring Jason Kidd.

It is a great shot.Hes fouled and still has the mental awereness to grab the ball again and heave a prayer. Sure its a lucky shot. Whats so amazing about it is the way he grabs the ball again and gets off the shot in time.

Well..I think 90% of the players in the NBA would try to sell the foul. The percentages of making that shot are so low..and in the current state of the NBA..flopping wins games.

I totally disagree. Avery in Orlando or Houston or LAC right now would be kicking butt.

He knows the style he wants. Dallas just didn't have the exact players needed to play his style.

Avery was the killer to Devins game though.

I agree. I don't think Avery is a bad coach. Quite the opposite actually. I think his downfall was trying to make this Mavs team the Spurs and we didn't have the personnel for it. But send him to a team where the point guard is past 1st and they have a solid big man and they'll be a playoff contender. Like Orlando and Houston as you brought up. I'd love to see what he'd do with the Rockets.

You really think Avery could do a better job than what Stan Van Gundy is doing in Orlando? Adelman is doing all he can in Houston with the pieces he has...look at what he did at the end of last season without McGrady. And putting Avery in charge of Baron Davis and Eric Gordon isn't a good idea. Baron excels in the break and with Avery he would have to be looking to the sideline every single play. Avery is best suited as an assistant coach. His act gets tiresome and players don't respond after a while. Maybe he should coach college bball.

Avery built that team so if we didn't have the right personnel than that's his fault for not constructing the right kind of team to do what he wanted to do.

Send him to a team where the point guard is pass first? You mean a point guard like Jason Kidd??

Because Avery Johnson can't recognize talent and has short-man syndrome. He must have folded his arms in front of his chest like 80% of the time he was coaching.

That? That's a long shot, but Devin was fouled, lost the ball, and flung it off his fingers for a swoosh the last split second possible to win.

There was no foul called there soo idk what you are talking about and in that situation and in that part of the court no one would get any call there unless he got basically slammed. It was a great shot, but your wayy exaggerating to say that it was one of the greatest ever

Avery built the team? The whole damn team was Nellie's players with a few exceptions that don't even matter. And I don't mean a point guard like Kidd who needs athletes around him to be at his best. I mean a guy like....Avery himself. I think that's the type of point guard Avery wanted all along. He tried to mold Devin into him and he couldn't. And he didn't stand a chance when the trade for Kidd came since his legacy is already defined.

And let's be honest. There are two people in charge of the personnel of the Mavs and that's little Nellie and Cuban.

I think your misunderstanding what Dub is saying. The Sheed shot doesn't compare for the fact that Devin did get fouled. No foul was called but the defender clearly fouls him on the arm. If you've seen better shots then i'd like for you to name them so I can youtube them. Its one thing to make a halfcourt shot. Its another to make a game winning half court shot after you were fouled.

Yea, Avery tried to mold Devin Harris into Avery, he tried to mold Dirk into Duncan and he tried to mold the whole freeking team into San Antonio part 2. He also tried to mold Kidd into nothing more than a spot up shooter.


He just isn't a good coach. Maybe if he had the perfect team he would be but wouldn't any coach in that sense?

That's the approach I think you have to take though in order to get a championship. Other teams have followed the Spurs blueprint to success and its worked for the Pistons and Celtics. So I disagree with you about the above being bad coaching decisions. The problem above is personnel. Would you give Don Nelson Shaq, David West, James Posey, Danny Granger and RAymond Felton as a starting lineup knowing his at his best coaching a run and gun team?
