    I thought it might be a cool idea for a thread where people can show plays that they love and why they love them. I guess I'm just in a reminiscing mood.

    Doesn't have to be just Pistons-related plays. I'll start:
    YouTube - Shawn Kemp Insane Dunk Over Laimbeer - McDaniel explodes ! Huge Facial

    Things I love about this play:
    1. The obvious carry no-call
    2. Those Sonics uni's were great
    3. Shawn Kemp was awesome
    4. Kevin Calabro is one of the most entertaining announcers of all time.
    5. Bill Laimbeer was probably the only guy with enough guts to take the charge and get the call.
    6. The crowd still not realising it was called a charge (or maybe they don't care)
    7. X-man is just a fan like everyone else

    I'm positive they thought it was a foul on Laimbeer.

    You're just salty because I didn't think of some Australian play like ...uhmmm..."My crocodile ate my pet Kangaroo so now my Koala bear is lonely".:MusicBigGrin:

    Laimbeer got the last laugh with the offensive foul call....and eventually two NBA Championship trophies (something Seattle would never get anywhere close to).

    I meant the Shawn Kemp Sonics never won a championship, not the Sikma/DJ Sonics.

    YouTube - Clyde Drexler - Gorgeous Fingerroll

    The most beautiful finger-roll I've ever seen. It was probably a bit of overkill because he only had to get the ball over Carl Herrera. It's not like Hakeem was sitting under the rim. But who cares?

    The arc and trajectory are quite something. I mean the ball barely brushes the net. Pure skill. The 3rd replay is the best angle.
