Brooklyn Native Lifts German Team Over NBA Champions With Buzzer-Beating Floater
This is awesome: The San Antonio Spurs -- you know, the reigning NBA champs? -- played an exhibition game against German basketball team Alba Berlin yesterday. And they lost.
No one will say that this preseason game or its outcome actually mattered, but we're fairly impressed by how Alba pulled off the upset: American Jamel McLean (from Brooklyn, New York) took the outlet pass off a last-second turnover and hit a running floater for the win. Fake game or not, this shot takes balls:
As non-NBA teams go, Alba is pretty good: After winning eight German Championships and Cups, they're considered one of the best and most popular basketball clubs in Europe. Considering the international flavor the Spurs have taken on in recent years, don't be surprised to find one of Alba's players in San Antonio in the near future. We hope it's McLean, even though he's American. Brooklyn stand up.
