Yes, I would put the Sonics ahead of the Blazers for prime payton and better surrounding star quality casts. I always regarded the that year's Blazers one of the weakest finalists.


Neither team makes a good case to be included in upper echelon teams that made Finals anyways.

Oh yeah, that was one of the best playoff series I ever saw, right up there with Sixers/Celtics '81 ECF, Knicks/Celtics '73 ECF, Bulls/Pistons '90 ECF or any of the Knicks/Bullets series from the early 70s.

I've seen my share of nasty playoff series, but NOTHING topped that '90 ECF. One sports talkie described it as "evil", and he was right. Nastier than the Celtics/Pistons rivalry. It was like Ali/Frazier.

the bulls had to get our of the east though which was much different back then. today its a free trip to the finals for lebron where the real challenge awaits while back then the bulls knew if they made the finals they were winning

Loved both teams.

Reggie's Pacers were nice I remember. They really had a great shot at winning it all had they made the Finals in the following year instead of one of the weakest finalist(historically) Houston/Sprewell. What if they conquered the young Tim Duncan, we would be seeing Reggie's career in different light today.

Good for MJ, even though I love the X-man. Love when it gets chippy. The Knicks were tough.

The two handed dunks from close to the foul line always impress me.

However, that video made me think of the classic clip from Javelle McGee. We can call this classic now, works for the thread :lol:

Nice Najera sighting in that vid of Vince Carter. Dunno why but I used to have fun watching those kinda hustle players that were so unique. Like Junk yard dog Jerome, Othella Harrington, Pete Chilcutt, George Lynch, Kevin Willis, Pollard, etc.

Knew of the guy, but not really familiar with him, but have been since he's on the '07-'08 Nuggets in 2K18 and I recreated that Nets team... thought he was a three-point marksman.

On the subject of that assist to Najera, I feel like one of the most underrated aspects of VC's game is his passing.

Looks like Uncle Drew, no disguise needed.

One of the reasons I think it would be cool to have a retired players game as part of the all-star festivities (Like I was saying to Andrew). Some of these guys can straight ball still, and the celebrity game (when they include classic players) is too silly. I'd rather have a game full of retired players like Mobley.

I'm interested in them bringing back the concept, though I think they should stick to players who are fairly recently retired. That was the problem with the old Legends game; some of the guys were more than twenty years removed from playing professionally, and it was kind of sad to see at times, not to mention there were some injuries. I think you'd probably end up with a lot of players who weren't perennial All-Stars (if ever they made an All-Star team) or all-time greats, but then, the NBA seems to call all of its alumni "Legends", so I guess the name would still fit.

Well how about this for a somewhat recently retired 5 on 5 game, and who do you think would win? Assuming they did two 12 minutes halves, run time. And, that the players would be reasonably healthy.

This obviously would never happen, but I'd certainly watch this game. It would be a lot of fun.

Team One:
PG: Chauncey Billups
SG: Allan Houston
SF: Paul Pierce
PF: Kevin Garnett
C: Yao Ming

PF: Al Harrington

Team Two:

That seems plausible. I could see some of the bigger names declining to take part, but a lot of those players might participate, and could probably still go. I feel like Team One might win that one, though I am inclined to pick Team Two just for Kobe.

Marv Albert sold that really well.

Scott Brooks did a decent job of seeming legitimately pissed off as well.

I watched this entire game on Monday night. If all-star games were played like this in todays NBA, I would watch every single one.

Good defensive intensity throughout, a good competitive game. Worthy had some sweet dunks, Nique with two 360 layups, Bird played well. Moses is just a beast on the boards, and Kareem looks so good for 38.
