Let me school the lil kids on here on some history.
One of the greatest basketball games I ever seen "live"
And I've seen many growing up in the Jordan Era
i remember staying up to watch this on a school night in awe
After 4 1/2 years of retirement after announcing he had the HIV virus
Magic cameback in 1995-96 season against Golden State in the Forum
Staple Center didn't exist yet
and went 19-8-10.
In that game he put the best head up move i ever seen on Sprewell.
Sprewell was never the same after that.
let's ask jaren jackson if sprewell was "never the same" after falling for a ballfake by the greatest PG of his generation...
i don't mean to s**t on this solid, albeit hyperbolic, thread... but 3 years later, sprewell was a key member of the only 8th seeded team to ever make it to the Finals... they lost the game where that highlight came from by 1 point, but spree dropped 35 with 10 rebounds...
