NBA rookie and former D-League player Troy Daniels shocked the world when he hit a 3-point shot with just 12 overtime seconds left to give the Houston Rockets their first playoff win in 2014 over the Portland Trail Blazers.
This is what the internet can do folks. An undrafted player who got less than 75 total minutes of court time all season, the most innocuous of NBA players – one shot, one win, and his name is the biggest thing on Twitter…and Wikipedia.
Yes, Wikipedia. After draining the shot heard ’round the world, Daniels’ Wikipedia page went absolutely…well, you can check it out: (H/T – HeraldSun.com)
Go home, Wikipedia….you’re drunk.
The entry, which has since been edited and brought back to normal by Wiki-editors, had Twitter LOL’ing into the wee hours of the morning following the Rockets’ huge win.

You cannot stop Troy Daniels, nor can you identify him if he was standing next to you in an elevator. #TroyDaniels
