    There is only one set of Twin Towers and they played for the Spurs. So dominate, in fact, that the actual Twin Towers in NYC had to bow out in between Spurs championship runs.

            Shaq didn't mature into a great player until he met Phil Jackson with the Lakers.

                  Shaq's Orlando Magic days was awesome. Sure Shaw have had a legendary career and all, but I many times wish he coiuld have had them all in Magic.
                  Even Shaq admits he wish that he could have all that if he had stayed with the Magic. To bad tho that Penny & Kobe both could not accept the formula of "Jing & Jang" as that combination was reviewed by many coaches & experts that if that system would have worked, Shaq's team(s) could have won a lot of more championships as that system was near unbeatble, only surpassed by the triangle system by Phil Jackson. Penny & Kobe wanted to be the star of attention instead of a two-star system with Shaq. Sure Shaq wanted to be a big star as well but he was a fine team player who chared the spotlight and also very liked as a person by most players in NBA.

                          Hakeem had more talent and class than Shaq.

                              Game 1 doesn't "set the tone." Incredibly, it means one team has to win 3 games to win the series and the other has to win 4. That's why the loser of game 1 most often loses the series. Tone has nothing to do with it.

                                  Orlando starting off fast in Game one of the finals, then losing game one along with the next three reminded me a lot of the Tampa Bay Lightning this past postseason for the NHL. The Lightning jumped out to a 3-0 lead in Game one over Columbus, but the Jackets came back, won and never stopped, ending Tampa's season in a sweep. The Bolts also won the Presidents' Trophy for most overall points during the regular season, so they had the team in place to compete for the cup. This Magic team had the potential to win it all in '95. These Florida teams have so much in common.

                                      No rewind needed for me. I remembered this game and I'm a fan of Nick Anderson, but I call it as I see it. It was a huge choke job.

                                        Rangers vs Cardinals 2011 World Series. Game 6, David Freese. Perfect for rewind. As a die hard Ranger fan (even tho its painful) I would love to see that video get made.

                                                    Hakeem Olajuwon is one of the most underrated legends in NBA history. He should be in anyone's top 10 list.

                                                      Hakeem is criminally underrated.

                                                          Do the dream shake deep rewind, Hakeem went god mode against Spurs in that series because Robinson won MVP over him.

                                                            You said Hakeem had 29 points in the first half, but the screen shows 20.

But Houston was a savvy veteran team that wanted it more. Magic acted like they were gonna be there 8 more times and Houston acted like it's now or never.
