I loved Larry's shot, but it was Pistol Pete that attracted me to the game. You yunguns have no idea what you missed. I remember seeing him score 50 or 60 back in the 70's, and he made everything look easy - off-balanced shots while falling out-of-bounds, shots from deep in the corner where the ball had to clear the top corner of the backboard. And it always seemed like he never touched iron. It was like the rims could be brought in another inch and it wouldn't matter. Yeah - it was the same kind of thing I saw in Bird and why I fell in love with him as well - but Pete was first.
