Georgia State basketball is not shying away from the fact that its most famous ever moment was a guy falling out of his chair.

On Sunday, the Panthers gave away bobbleheads commemorating coach Ron Hunter’s tumble from his swivel chair during the NCAA Tournament in March.

Hunter’s famous fall came after his son R.J. hit a game-winning shot to lift 14-seed Georgia State over 3-seed Baylor. Ron Hunter was confined to a chair after tearing his achilles while celebrating the team’s NCAA Tournament berth.

R.J. Hunter plays for the Boston Celtics, but it’s dad who now has his own bobblehead, and it’s an awfully cool one. Bobblehead Ron is mid-fall, with a boot on his foot and, naturally, a smile on his face.

If you didn’t make it to Atlanta in time to see Georgia State play Middle Tennessee on Tuesday, you can buy a glorious Ron-Hunter-falling bobblehead from the National Bobblehead Hall of Fame and Museum.
