Mario Chalmers is now a member of the Memphis Grizzlies, but years ago, he broke the heart of fans in the city with a mighty three-pointer to lift Kansas over the Tigers in the 2008 National Championship game — sending the contest to overtime.

Now that Chalmers is a member of the Grizzlies, fans have signed a Change.org petition begging the NBA’s television partners to refrain from bringing this up all the time.

Please don’t make us suffer through constant “Steve, take a look at this (clip from 2008 title game): That’s current Memphis Grizzlies back-up PG standing over the entire city of Memphis, dropping his shorts, and pooping on the hopes and dreams of 676,660 people.”

Or

“Wow, Clark, I wonder how many Memphis fans remember this…(clip rolls).”

We all remember it, and have been collectively flinching at the mention of the most commonly forgotten state ever since.

While I have you here, it should also be noted that Hall of Fame coach John Calipari DIDN’T FOUL CHALMERS ON THE POSSESSION LEADING TO THE 3. YOU HAD A FOUL TO GIVE, CAL. WTF BUDDY.

That was a long time ago for Chalmers, who hasn’t hit a shot that important since.
