Default Three transcendent plays

1) Game Seven of the 1988 Eastern Conference Semifinals, fourth quarter: Larry Bird, stumbling toward the hoop and being fouled, scoops the ball left-handed from below his knees, high off the glass and in. See the 3:35 mark on this Youtube video:

http://youtube.com/watch?v=rMwUDnVd0...elated&search=

2) Game One of the 1991 NBA Finals: Michael Jordan switches hands in mid-air for the layup. (Marv Albert: Oh! A spectacular move by Michael Jordan!)

http://youtube.com/watch?v=IKkoalwoock

3) Game Four of the 1994 Western Conference Semifinals, fourth quarter: Kevin Johnson plunges baseline and explosively flushes on Hakeem Olajuwon.

There are others, but those are the three that, for me, transcend the game and make time stand still.

Default Re: Three transcendent plays

I'll take my 5 personal most spectacular plays in the history of the Finals:

Julius Erving's lay-up in 1980 against the Lakers.
Michael Jordan's lay-up in 1991 against the Lakers.
Jerry West's 60-footer in 1970 against the Knicks.
Larry Bird's follow in 1981 against the Rockets.
Bill Russell's block in 1957 against the Hawks. I haven't watched the final one, but I've read about it, and it seems really something else. If anyone has it, please post it.

Yeah, that Bird scoop shot off his own miss was fantastic.

Time has not continued snce Horry's shot. Time has no meaning any more. Every time they replay that, every kings fan assumes the fetal position and mumbles incoherently.
