March Madness might be happening as we speak, but the NBA has casually decided to out-pace the whole tournament by producing one of the most truly bananas basketballing moments the month of March has ever seen thanks to a Charlotte Hornets buzzer beater that has to be seen to be believed.
A game Charlotte outfit looked all-but dead and buried in Canada against the Toronto Raptors after Jeremy Lamb fumbled an in-bound pass with less than three seconds remaining and with the Hornets trailing by two.
Then this shit happened.
Look at it.
WE. HAVE. NO. WORDS. 🤯

That is RIDICULOUS.
Lamb manages to gather the ball from well beyond half court, heaves up a near-blind rainbow that just about hits the bloody roof, and it somehow banks in.
Insanity. Pure bedlam. Every Raptors fan in the arena simultaneously turning into Stephen A Smith.
For the stats nerds among you, at 48-feet that’s the second-longest game-winning buzzer beater of the past 20 years. Only Tyreke Evans has a longer one: a 49-foot heave in a 2010 Sacramento Kings stunner against the Memphis Grizzlies.
Jeremy Lamb’s game-winning buzzer-beater was from 48 feet, the second-longest game-winning buzzer-beater over the last 20 seasons. Tyreke Evans hit a 49-footer against the Grizzlies on Dec. 29, 2010.
