In college basketball lore, it’s known simply as “The Shot,” and Christian Laettner’s buzzer-beater to beat Kentucky in the 1992 East Regional Final will certainly be featured in tonight’s 30 for 30 special: “I Hate Christian Laettner.” Today is Selection Sunday, and the same artist — Instagram’s AZXD — who brought you the Ronda Rousey KO in claymation, did the same with Laettner’s iconic game-winner.

If you don’t know about “The Shot,” it’s so famous, the jersey Laettner wore when he caught Grant Hill’s three-quarter court inbounds before draining the winner sold for $119,500 when it went up for auction in December of 2013.

If Laettner ever feels bummed out about being so universally loathed (he doesn’t), or the diction in the Fab Five documentary comes on, he can always just watch this claymation of “The Shot” to feel better.
