LeBron James sunk what SB Nation dubbed “The Chosen Shot” in a 2009 Finals game against the Orlando Magic. The Magic had a 95-93 lead over the Cleveland Cavaliers when LeBron turned it all around with a nothing-but-net three-pointer. The Cavaliers won 96-95 and evened the conference finals series for the two teams. Sasha Pavlovic and the rest of the team flooded the court in celebration while the Magic head coach Stan Van Gundy shrugged and walked off the court. Despite this buzzer-beating comeback the Magic still won all three of their home games and won the series in six games.
