Daly and McCloskey were a great team. They built something special. It took a lot of guts and a certain amount of luck to achieve what they did. How many banners would be hanging in the Palace now had the Pacers picked Rodman in 86 and we got Greg Dreiling or Larry Krystkowiak instead? Or if Dumars didn't fall to us in 1985 and we picked Alfredrick Hughes or Steve Harris? An NBA championship is always a very precious, amazing thing. It's never a done deal, or a foregone conclusion who will win the title and there certainly is no inevitability to anything - the fact that this year's finals MVP is a quiet kid and not the King of basketball is a testament to that. There is no reason to belittle anybody's achievements. SVG's record included.
