Best Sports Photo Ever

Image hosted by Photobucket.com

I am not a huge sports guy but being from Indianapolis I have to make mention of this. Reggie Miller played his final game last night and I will always remember this shot. He scored 8 points in 8.9 seconds to beat the Knick's in game one of the '95 Eastern Conference semifinals. To Knick’s fans it has to be the equivalent of the JFK assassination.

Basketball fan or not, you have to appreciate this photo; the looks on the faces of the people in the crowd say it all.

Dude,

I guess you'd have to be a bit biased being from Indiana and all but the best sports picyure has to be this:

Yes, I remember that game. What Reggie did was absolutely phenomenol. And I don't think even Jordan ever did anything quite like that. But then again, being from Indianapolis, I am also biased. But so what. Hey, I heard a sports announcer say one time that they should also retire Reggie Millers jersey in Madison Square Garden in New York. That would be fucking lovely, considering all the damage he did there over the years. Hey Spike Lee I got an idea, Eat a Dick!
