My Favorite Non-Celtic Shot in the Last 20 Seasons

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.
