Thanks Vernon, I owe ya
Wednesday, June 22nd, 1994. I had just passed my Chemistry Regents final exam, something I needed to do otherwise I may have had to go to summer school. It was Game 7 of the Finals that night. I was 15.
The Celtics were coming off a horrendous season. MJ had just retired, so my brother who was a huge Bulls fan was bummed out as well. Living in NY we took a lot of crap from a lot of people. We both hated the Knicks.
I remember declaring to people in my class that the Celts would win a championship before the Knicks did. Vernon Maxwell's shot at 0:59 on this helped this become a reality:
It's too bad the sound isn't synced with the game. Doesn't matter. That was my favorite non-Celtic shot from any NBA playoff game in the past 20 years. And I'll always hold a special place in my heart for Vernon Maxwell, as strange as that sounds lol. tb727 10/02/2009 09:37:00 PM Tweet Edit
