Flanked onstage by Kids’ Choice Sports host Michael Strahan, Dallas Mavericks center Tyson Chandler, basketball forward Metta World Peace, and The Haunted Hathaways star Benjamin “Lil’ P-Nut’’ Flores Jr., Jacobo Jr. had five chances to make the shot, landing it on his fourth in a thrilling moment for everyone.

Jacobo Jr. said the first thing he saw after he made the shot was his idol Kevin Durant (NBA, Oklahoma City Thunder) cheering him on from the front row. Later backstage, Jacobo Jr. capped his evening by meeting Durant.

Jacobo Jr. qualified for the opportunity to participate in the “ Kids’ Choice Sports Half-Court Shot Contest,” during an open call held July 12 at the Westfield Culver City mall. He was chosen among hundreds of hopefuls.

A lineup of sports superstars including Dwyane Wade, Tim Howard, Serena Williams, Kevin Durant, Gabby Douglas, Victor Cruz, Carmelo Anthony and more were winners, taking home orange mohawked blimps at Nickelodeon’s inaugural Kids’ Choice Sports 2014, Thursday, July 17, at 8-9:30 p.m. (ET/tape delayed for West Coast). Hosted by Michael Strahan ( LIVE with Kelly and Michael, Fox NFL Sunday), the awards were broadcast live from UCLA’s Pauley Pavilion in Los Angeles where kids honored their favorite athletes, teams and sports moments from the year in one big, slimy sports celebration.
