This shot, was just so unbelievably sweet. As cold as it gets.
And on top of that, as Bill Simmons rattled off, off the top of his head on SportsCenter, this is a rare series-ending walk-off buzzer beater. MJ in ’89 vs. the Cavs. Ralph Sampson vs. the Lakers in ’86. (And one he didn’t mention on air… John Stockton versus… wait for it… the Rockets in ’97). Are there any more? Pretty good company.
