Not that it really matters at this point but the wheel that was implemented that year makes all results almost null and void from my end. I do not believe Wallace was robbed because I loved Richardson's windmill and I liked his final dunk (bounce, two-hand windmill-ish type reverse) better than Wallace scraping in from the free throw line.

I don't hold that against Wallace though. I think it was unfortunate that he, Richardson (who drew a 'Nique windmill but also had to try to dunk from the free throw line), and Francis had to do dunks they otherwise would have passed over in favor of something more to their own styles.
