This clip NEVER fails to give me goosebumps. What a shot. What a season. What a team.
How much I wish TV was in HD back then. Love the need to rainbow that shot over Sheed. Watching Robinson and Elie run through the tunnel with those big smiles on their face.
Has the Alamodome ever roared so loudly for a basketball game? The days when a single championship was still a hope & dream. How can NBATV not show this game on this holiday, especially with the Spurs again in the WCF? Come on NBA.
Ironic that the video segment begins with a shot of Steve Kerr in a Spurs uniform coming on to the court. Must be his GM experience over the Suns that drives him to stop just short (because of his TNT analyst position) to openly root for any team facing the Spurs when he is on the broadcast team.
If I’m wrong with that previous statement, please weigh in. (Suprise—ESPN’s Jon Barry picks OKC to steal game 2.
Going back to the blog topic: the combination of never leading the entire game until the last 9 seconds(along with falling behind by 18 in the third) plus Sean almost clumsily falling out of bounds before regaining his balance, then shooting the ball wth 6’10″ Rasheed Wallace in his face playing outstanding D, makes that game a top 5 one in the Spurs playoff championship accomplishments.
… and I’ll take a 16-2 playoff record to finish this playoff shortened season, thank you.
