WATCH: Damar Hamlin Goes Viral for Buzzer-Beater Three in Celebrity Game



It was Damar Hamlin’s night in the Steel City.

On the night of his very own celebrity basketball game, Hamlin stole the show with an epic ankle-breaker that led to the game-winning step back three.

Check out the shot below.


Hamlin had the ball at the wing with 11 seconds to go in a tie game, held it, and decided to take the final shot of the game. After a smooth move, he created space, broke the defender’s ankles, and drained the step-back three pointer for the win, sending the gym into a frenzy. Hamlin jumped up onto the scorer’s table with his shirt off as the crowd went wild in the North Allegheny gym.

The moment quickly gained traction on social media, with Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Russell Wilson also sharing his video of the event and Barstool Sports also sharing PSN’s video below.


The game featured appearances from Aaron Donald, Brandon Marshall, Julian Newman, James Cook, Micah Hyde, Jenna Bandy, Trae the Truth, Geno Stone, Sirian Neal, Jason Barrera, Gillie Da Kid, Miles Sanders, Tyler Boyd, Cam Johnson, Puff Johnson, Dejuan Blair, Flavor Flav, Dane Jackson, Hot Shot Swanson, and Dion Dawkins.

Wilson attended the event but did not play in the game, arriving at halftime and embracing the former NFL star Donald as soon as he entered the gym.
