The rules are the rules. The NBA held its annual celebrity basketball game this weekend, which was part of its All-Star festivities. One of the celebrities who participated was The Miz, who had a fantastic moment that suddenly turned into a disaster.

The Miz, who was on Team [Dwayne] Wade, hit a half-court shot to potentially tie the game and send it to overtime, only to have it waived off because he released the ball after time expired. You can see the shot and the aftermath below:


The second-most star-studded game of All-Star weekend wasn’t short on bling, fame, drama, or last-minute excitement Friday as the basketball weekend kicked off in style.

It was the 2023 Ruffles NBA All-Star Celebrity Game and it was decided at the final buzzer — or not.

WWE Superstar The Miz sank a half-court heave that was waved off, much to the relief of Team Dwyane Wade, which survived and beat Team Ryan Smith 81-78.

The MVP of the game was DJ Metcalf, who was too physical and too imposing for anyone on Team Ryan. Metcalf, the All-Pro receiver for the Seattle Seahawks, finished with 20 points 10 rebounds, and four blocks. Metcalf also added a half-dozen dunks and was easily and quickly the crowd favorite.


Editor’s Opinion:

In all honesty, this is about as great of a thing that could happen to him. The Miz can play this off in an angle, and this happening to him is something perfect for his character. I can’t wait to see what he does with this next week on WWE programming!
