I’m an NBA one-minute wonder who had just two touches in my career – I only made tiny amount from it

EVERYONE gets their fifteen minutes of fame – but for Ahmad Caver, it was only 50 seconds.

The former Indiana Pacers guard, 26, made his first and only NBA appearance to date in January 2022.

Caver came off the bench to play 50.6 seconds of the Pacers’ 129-121 defeat to the Brooklyn Nets.

He scored a basket during his brief cameo, bursting into the paint for a finger roll layup.

It leaves Caver with a 100 percent field goal percentage in his NBA career.

He said after the game, where he got two touches: “Not everybody gets an opportunity to score in the NBA, especially when you got Kevin Durant and James Harden on the floor.

“So of course that’s gonna be something I remember for a lifetime.”

Caver began his journey at North Gwinnett High School in Suwanee, Georgia.

He committed to Old Dominion, playing backup to Trey Freeman during his rookie season with the Monarchs.

Eventually establishing himself as a starter, Caver left college after his senior year with 11.3 points per game after shooting .377 from the field.

He went undrafted in the 2019 NBA Draft, before signing an Exhibit 10 deal with the Memphis Grizzlies.

Ahmad played for the Grizzlies’ G-League affiliate the Hustle and over the next two seasons averaged 15.4 points, 7.0 assists, and 4.5 rebounds per game.

On December 31, 2021, the Pacers came in for Caver on a ten-day contract via the hardship exemption.

Per Spotrac, the Atlanta native bagged $53,176 for his short stint with Indiana.

And although his NBA debut didn’t provide the career springboard he’d hoped for, it was still a dream come true for the 6ft 2in guard.

Caver said: “Just having the confidence, knowing that I can play in this league.

“Somebody sees that I have some talent to actually be up here to get that 10-day [deal].

” Because everybody is getting 10-days, but there’s a lot of people that’s not.

“I think that’s for a reason, so that’s what I just took from it.”

After leaving the Pacers, Caver returned to the Hustle and played out the remainder of the 2021-22 G-League season.

He was briefly on the roster with the Pheonix Suns during their 2022 summer league.

Caver now plays for the BC Wolves of the Lithuanian Basketball League.

Last season, he led the league in scoring and assists, bagging the LKL MVP award.
