    Why isn’t Donyell Marshall in this game?

  • Amber

    Hardaway was easily the most versatile player of his time. I believe at one point in his career he was the only player averaging over 20 points a game. When Shaq was playing alongside him and was injured took the magic to a 17-5 start of the season by himself. He wasn’t scared to get in the paint and score even tho he wants the biggest man on the court he played with the most heart. He’s a living legend in basketball, a great role model both on and off the court.

    My favorite moment was from Nick Van Excel when he lost his cool and shoved the referee after he got ejected.

    He showed the world his fiery, feisty side and should have set the bar for what player misconduct towards a referee should be set at.

    When Kemp shook Jordan out of his Jordans and went up and dunked over Pippen so hard the dude went into a fetal position while still in the air…

    i think it was the conference semi-finals vs the kings when sam cassell had a great 4th quarter and made some clutch buckets and did his “big balls dance”.. one of the best moments in timberwolves history!

  • Danny N.

    My favorite moment is from “The Human Highlight Film”. It was when he and Larry Bird went head to head in Game 7 ,1988 in the eastern conference semifinals. On that night you got to see 2 of the best at that time battle against each other out. Wilkens had 47 with a high shooting percentage thanks to his 19 of 23. Bird had 34 with 20 coming in the 4th quarter. Even though the Hawks lost by 2, Every player, coach, broadcaster, and fan that was there knew they’d just witnessed one of the greatest games in NBA history and performances they’d never forget.

    My favorite moment is from Sam (I Am) Cassell – his clutch 3 pointer against the Knicks in Game 3 of the 1994 NBA Finals (his rookie year) to help put the Rockets up two games to one was just a sign of great things to come from my favorite NBA player!

    Nick Van Exel was my favorite Laker between the Magic & Kobe/Shaq eras and my heart goes out to him because of his son. My favorite moment was against the Celtics during a random regular season game when, down one with 2 seconds left, he caught, pivoted and hit a turn around 3 from near half court for the win. It personified Nick’s no-nonsense, swagger-driven, yet largely unheralded career – but we loved him in LA during the dark years…http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=POXL49YzEns

    Shawn Kemp reversal on Rodman ’96 finals…

  • Rob Stewart

    Last shot taken and made in BOSTON GARDEN (between Lakers and Celtics) was by Nick Van Exel. I’m pretty sure he stepped on the line as he made the game winning three point shot but who cares. He ran around the court acting a complete fool and then head coach Del Harris did a body contortion celebration that would have made Soul Train proud.

  • Billy Sunday

    The Glove and the Rain Man!! What is there not to say about em?? but my memorable moment was GP lockin up jordan in the finals especially game 6. However, the bulls still managed to win. BTW shawn kemp had better finals performance than jordan

  • Sanju Cherian

    Favorite moment has to come from Nick Van Exel during the 2003 Dallas Mavericks playoff run. His astounding 40 point game, and running shot to force overtime against arch rival Sacramento Kings made it one of the greatest playoff series ever. Without his leadership coming off the bench, the Mavs would have never been able to fend off the Kings in 7 games.

  • Perry the PlatyPteranodon

    Him not being in is absolutely Ludacris!

  • anthony

    Even though I was only a baby, I used to hear and watch tape on Sam Cassell’s 31 point performance in game 2 in the 1995 NBA finals against the Magic. In that game Cassell was a contributor in the Rockets win, that gave them a 2-0 series lead that ended with the sweep.

    Chuck should have a field day with Sam Cassel’s head in that pic. Why would you put that ugly mug front and center?

  • Andrew

    Watching Sam Cassell score 17 points against the Spurs with a late clutch shot to lead the C’s to a victory after being down. He would go on to win his third NBA Championship! Cassell and the C’s defeated the Lakers. Special moment for the Celtics and the end of Cassell’s NBA career

  • Lil penny

    Watching Penny Hardaway post up and dunk on Karl Malone 12/15/95

  • Lil penny

    And why because penny is a beast and no other pg can compare to him

  • hamidashimono

    My favorite GP moment was when he was on a fast break and had to run and jump out of bounds to save a pass.

    He ends up passing it perfectly behind him and between his legs to a trailing player for the layup against the Knicks.

    The commentator screams, “Oh, you gotta love that action!”
    I practiced that pass after watching that amazing play from the Glove!

  • hamidashimono

    That was an awesome shot. Had to look it up in YouTube again: http://tinyurl.com/7j3ha88

    Have the winners been notified yet?

  • BK

    Steve Francis in the 2000 slam dunk contest was phenomenal. He used his buddy Cuttino Mobley as a prop and had two or three really memorable dunks. He would have been the winner any other year, but Vince Carter was on top of the world at that time.

  • Steven H

    92 playoffs Shawn Kemp dunked on Lister and pointed at him… Amazing and funny moment … The Blake Griffin of his era

  • Pick Me

    I’m pretty sure Sam Cassell and ET are brothers

    i think penny is going to dominate this game by looking at the players listed. is jalen playing..he looks like he is still in shape on espn! i bet if magic wanted to play he would still be the best on the court!

  • Peter Walsh

    Not yet, going through responses. Winners will be notified on Wednesday!

  • Seamus Fay

    Dominique Wilkins. My favorite moment from his career was when he dunked on Larry Bird. Even though I am a Celtics fan, that was an amazing dunk and I am sure Bird remembered that play considering all the times that the two went at each other.

  • Seamus Fay

    Or Penny Hardaway. I loved seeing game 3 of the 1997 playoffs against the Heat. The Heat killed them the first two games but game 3 was interesting. The Heat had a 20 point lead in the second quarter, but my man Penny took over and had 26 first half points. He finished with 42 points, and even though Orlando lost in 5 games, it was one of the best instances where I have seen an NBA player just absolutely take over and just kill dudes.

    They should have this during all star weekend rather than the celebrity game.

  • The Fury

    The Glove headbutting a referee.

  • Lauren Schooler

    Another favorite moment was when Penny posterized Patrick Ewing! I could not stand Patrick and the rest of the Pat Riley Knicks so that was sweet! One of the most memorable dunks of the decade – Penny was a beast (pre-injury)!
