    That was great!! I think Green might have been the first option or is that wishful thinking ;) great drawn up play in any case. Love the reaction by our players and Worrell!! For all those who want him gone, listen to the Ackerman call and tell me honestly you like that better and i’ll show you a liar :) Gerald Green baby!!!!

    That has to be an amazing feeling, to hit a game winning shot for your hometown team on your court!

    Did anyone notice when Harden was celebrating, he only held 9 fingers up? The one he held down was the one digit Gerald doesn't have. Watch it again.

    I wonder if he’s the first NBA player with 9 fingers to hit a buzzer beater to win a game.

    What a dagger. I mean damn, Suns probably played their best game of the season...they probably deserved that win...ol boy hit a clutch bucket to put em up with 1 tick left. They won that game for 47m 58.6seconds.

    And then Gerald Green said KALIIIIMMAAAAAAA temple of doom style, reached into the Suns chest and pulled their heart out so they could watch it’s last beat.

    I love how Harden lets Green have his moment and just plays the role of spectator.

    Then Green goes center court and they have this epic stare down but do not yet embrace. They are both taking in this perfect moment of this perfect season.

    Jackson left Gerald Green wide open just to jump in front of Harden and flop like a mad man.

    For all of us that said this game was meaningless, it was great to see how excited all of the guys were when that shot went in.

    In the player intros last night, Green(who started in place of CP3 and EG), got a very loud ovation, 2nd only to Harden. He's definitely a fan favorite and that was before he hit the game-winner to beat the Suns.

    BTW, since everyone is mentioning jerseys worn to the Suns game, as I was leaving, I saw a dude in front of me with a Francisco Garcia #32 jersey. I never even knew those were available.

    Gerald Green is a TRUE national treasure and he must be protected at all costs!

    I was there for that shot sitting in the 5th row diagonally behind steve novak! Best live moment I've ever been to!
    Me and my friends went crazy!! That one was more important but game winners are game winners! They are all sweet!
