Wow, if this happened today Petrovic would simply lean into Hakeem and he'll automatically get called for the foul. Hakeem obviously didn't listen to Leo enough....

One that I will never forget. After Duncan made that shot the camera turned to Kareem, Malone, Kobe, Shaq, and Payton who all looked defeated. Then .4 happened.

My favourite moment growing up when I first really started to get into basketball had to be this:


That series was probably the best series I've ever watched, despite the cheating. Both teams played great basketball, it was extremely fun to watch the contrasting styles, and both teams hated each other, which made it so much better. Rivalries really give playoff series that extra intensity which really elevates the overall excitement.


But overall, it's definitely this:


Having watched KG struggle with crappy Minnesota teams, and almost leading his MIN team to a championship before Cassell got injured, then getting another opportunity in Boston to win a title, and doing it in the first year that team was constructed was really special. That team was probably the most focused team I've ever watched in terms of keeping their focus throughout an entire season. They absolutely obliterated the teams that they were supposed to win against, and they won 60+ games that year with a roster they just put together which is really unprecedented as far as I can remember. They struggled through the first 2 rounds then really got it going in that series vs Detroit which propelled them to an epic series win vs LAL, especially with that huge comeback game in game 4 I believe it was. Then seeing KG just break down with pure emotion was so awesome to watch.

Followed closely by this:


This was a huge test for KG, as most went after him for not being a clutch performer, and saying he couldn't lead his team to a big series win, that he was a 2nd fiddle type of player, then he came out and had one of the best game 7s ever, and completely controlled and dominated the game.

Personal: In my grade 12 year I was invited to the Nike All-Canada Basketball camp in Toronto. Jay Triano ran the camp and Nash and Rowan Barrett were there running drills with us on one of the days. We were doing a one on one drill, first guy in line was D, next guy was on O. I turned around to play D and Nash had gotten in line behind me. He crossed me over, I almost fell, he laid it in. I'll never forget it.

NBA: Could probably insert about 25 different Jordan plays in here but this is the one that sticks out in my head. We've all seen it 1000 times or more. I was like 6 or 7 and still remember jumping off the couch when he hit this shot.

I remember that play too. Don't know how it wasn't an offensive foul.

my favorite memory was probably the vince dunk contest.

Best in game moment was a game during the philadelphia series and we had something like 2 clear break dunks one right after another. One was Vince (i think) and one was jerome WIlliams. I remember going ape shit when that happened.

Raps beating the Bulls in '95. Watching the game on TV and almost in tears.

PS to Claudius. There was a fan in a Petrovic jersey in the front row during last nights game.

Default Greatest Upset in NBA History

I had the good luck to be working in Oakland on a deal when the 1975 NBA Finals came to Cow Palace in SAn Francisco. The company I was working with had center court tickets 3 rows back. The place rocked and GS Warriors won both games 2 and 3 . The noise was deafening and I was hoarse from yelling. Warriors got a total team effort from guys including Clifford RAy and George Johnson ( both defensive centers) ,Derrick Dickey PF, Jeff Mullins (3x NBA All-Star) rookies Keith (JAmaal) Wilkes (3x NBA All-Star and HOF), who was rookie of the year and asked after to be traded to LA Lakers and Phil SMith from USF who had a great career (2x NBA All-Star) and a great defensive player point guard Butch Beard ( NBA All-Star) . The star of the show was Rick BArry (12x NBA All-Star and HOF)Man could he run, pass and shoot...This team would finish ahead of RAps in the EAST!!!Amir and Kyle would have fit right in with that crew...

I have been a major NBA ever fan since. check out the action...old skool

note the coach brawl in 4th game ...
