Found April 05, 2012 on Holdout Sports:
Los Angeles Lakers reserve forward Josh McRoberts probably had the best highlight of his career in Tuesday night's NBA game by making a first quarter buzzer-beater against the New Jersey Nets. With four seconds left in the first half, McRoberts took the inbounds pass, dribbled across half court, went behind his back across the three-point line, made a spin move, and put up the fadeaway jumper just before the buzzer sounded for an incredible basket.

Could McRoberts become the newest off-the-bench NBA phenomenon, as Jeremy Lin was not too long ago? Probably not, but it's nice for McRoberts to have a moment like this and enjoy it.
