Ex-WWE announcer Jim Ross calls Paul Pierce's Game 3 buzzer beater

Friday May 15th, 2015

Washington Wizards guard Paul Pierce created an instant classic when he banked in the Game 3 buzzer beater that lifted the Wizards over the Atlanta Hawks

His heroics and "I called game" comment quickly spurred T-shirts and even got him a vote in the Polish presidential election. 

Now, former WWE announcer Jim Ross joined CSN Washington's "Sports Talk Live" to give his own call on the step-back, game-winning jumper. He also called Washington Capitals winger Tom Wilson's hit on the New York Islanders' Lubomir Visnovsky and a fall by CSN's Rob Carlin.

From Ross' call on Pierce's buzzer beater:

"Paul Pierce, with the money shot. It's all about the money, it's all about the game. The men will tell you, it's all about the game, it's not about the shot, it's about the game. He's old enough to be the father of many of the players on this team, but that’s beside the point. He's looking for a ring. He's looking for the money. And he's got money. Look at the crowd."
