Did you guys see the three but Dunny? That was one of the most stupidest, funniest, miraculous threes I've ever seen. This and the Derek Fiaher 3 pointer with .4 seconds to go....

So this brings up the question. Whats the greatest shot/dunk you've seen?

There have been so many unbelievable shots! I can't name them all so I'll bring up a few game winners from the past:


-Sean Elliott's shot while almost falling out of bounds for three in the lockout shortened season against the Blazers in the playoffs

- Barkley's bank shot from his hips against the Blazers in the 1992/93 season


I can't be stuffed writing anymore but there have been so many. Magic and Bird had so many spectacular game winners

The most amazing one I can think of was back in the late 90's playoffs, when Rex Chapman hit a ridiculous turnaround, fadeaway three from way out as he was falling out of bounds and right as time expired, to tie the game for Phoenix. I'll always remember that one.

That was against the Sonics in the playoffs of 1995-96 I think it was. That was one of the best I've ever seen! Well search out! If I remember right, the Suns lost 3-2 in that 1st round matchup but it was one great series!

McGrady against the Spurs. Not really one shot but the sickest 35 seconds I've ever seen.

True. If it comes to a game ending performance, nothing it's even close to this one.

Chapman's shot, Fisher's 0,4 shot and another one by Tim Hardaway while he was playing for Miami (It was a playoff game, but I don't remember which one right now. I'll look it up once I had the time) are the best game winning shots I've seen... hard to choose just one, tho.

Yes, Fisher's shot with 0.4 left against the Spurs I think, along with Horry's clutch playoff game winners. Wade swatting Amare and then hitting the three from the Suns side of the court and making it before the half expired. There were many. But yes, that shot was huge.

As a kid I was taken to a Harlem Clowns game. They were a poor man's version of the Harlem Globetrotters and had the same routines.

The game was held in an old multi-purpose gym that had a very low open-beam ceiling with all sorts of big braces and cross-bars.

They couldn't afford the Washington Generals, so they played a local rec league team.

Well, one of the rec guys was a real ass. He was really trying and getting all pissed off about the antics and jokes. He was pushing and fouling and swearing.

The Clowns were trying to calm him down and get him to play along, but he just got worse and worse. The crowd was even yelling at him to settle down. Kind of uncomfortable.

Just before half-time, one of the Clowns held the ball at about the top of the key on their end and, with seconds left on the clock, he handed the ball to the jerk. He wheeled around and threw the ball all the way down the court, through the forest of rafters and supports and hit nothing but net.

The jerk stomped off the court all hunched up and arrogant, thinking he was hot. The Clowns were just about dying with laughter. One tried to shake his hand, but he refused it.

The Clowns' travelling attraction was a guy that supposedly was 8'2" and it seemed that he was. His wife was about 4'11". Hmmm. Well, the Jerk did not appear in the second half, so we figured they sent the big guy over to deliver a message.


In later years I played about a million games in that old gym and we all tried to duplicate that shot. It was impossible. There was no way to thread a ball through all those supports.

True. If it comes to a game ending performance, nothing it's even close to this one.

I disagree (obviously).

1, because it's McGrady and I inherantly hate him. 2, because this one was better:

No way, McGrady's was WAAAY better. 3 3's plus a 4 pt play! Ridiculous.

What I liked about reggie's play was his immediate confidence, calmness, and coolness of mind to think to retreat to take a three, let alone make it
