R.I.P. Greg Paulus, 1986-2008
Danny Green, or DMFG as he is affectionately known in Tar Heel land, was guilty of murder by unbelievable posterization in 2008. He was brought up on charges years later in the Supreme Court case Green v. NBA Playoff Three-Point Record and was fully exonerated.

Green and innocent bystander Tyler Hansbrough were responsible for four wins and ZERO losses at the newly-renamed Hansbrough Indoor Stadium. Here is the untouched, completely accurate photo of the exact time of Paulus’ death:
