NBA Finals: What's YOUR Favorite Moment?

Andrew PalumboSenior Analyst IJune 1, 2008

It seems only fitting that the NBA's 2007-08 renaissance season ends with a familiar result:

The Boston Celtics vs. The Los Angeles Lakers

Pro basketball's most storied rivalry between its two most successful franchises has been restored during a season which has rapidly drawn casual observers and fans back to its base. 

No longer is the NBA the red-headed stepchild (I apologize ahead of time to any gingers from nontraditional families...just turning a phrase) of the American professional sports family...that honor is saved for the NHL.

Obviously, this Finals matchup between a Celtics team that has made the greatest single-season turnaround in history and a Lakers team featuring one of the best all-around players of all time is going to create many memorable highlights that we'll remember for years to come.

Thanks to the NBA Store's new Finals-specific merchandise and its lucrative contract with ABC, we have to wait until Thursday for the first of these highly-anticipated moments. 

So this is the perfect time for all of YOU to add YOUR favorite NBA Finals moments! 

Anything is fair game, where you were when it happened, what your reaction was, etc. 

Just like the previous "YOUR Favorite Moment" articles, I hope that your comments and memories will drive the material and I will pop-in from time to time with rebuttals or relevant links.

If possible, post a link to a YouTube (or other video host) clip that displays your favorite moment. Also, since I know it can be hard to narrow your choice to just one moment, please feel free to post early and often.

Now it's time to post YOUR favorite NBA Finals moment...
