favorite game:

1991 nba finals game 3. divac hits a layup for a two point lead with seconds remaining after a lucky break drops the ball in his hands. jordan dribbles up the sideline and nails the game tying last second shot in vlade's face to send it to OT where he totally takes over.

Meh, crossover, shmossover. I still love it.

This is the other one, although I'm sure you've seen it before.

The MJ one was decent, although the main reason I like the Kobe one is because Manu literally goes flying everywhere. The pumpfake is nice, but isn't that high on the list of why I love the move.

That's almost exactly like the move Jordan put on Rex Chapman at the beginning of "Michael Jordan: Above and Beyond." Nice move. I'm no fan of Kobe, but he's made a few moves that have had me shaking my head. My two faves:

1) Against Utah during the '05 season (I think), he crosses over AK out high and drives baseline, where a second defender is stepping up. He pump fakes AK and the second defender out of their shoes and then does some sort of reverse half spin jump in the air to get himself squared with the basket again and hits the 10 footer.

2) Against the Mavs last season (the game where LA wore the powder blue unis; I think Kobe had around 42 that game), he drives and weaves around 2-3 Mavs and then does some sick reverse scoop with english from in front of the rim (no glass, it just creeps over the rim and goes in).

Game 3 Suns v. Sonics in the 97 playoffs. Chapman hits the three to tie it up with 2 ticks left. Suns lose but I was like 10 years old at the time and got to stay up past my bedtime to finish watching the game. Good stuff.

More recently is the Game 1 v. the Spurs in the 2002-2003 playoffs. Amare banks in a three to send the game to OT and then Marbury banks in a three at the end of OT to win it 96-95.

Didn't watch it live but that was such a tough shot and you had to have ice water in your veins to pull up right in front of Vlade like MJ did.

I remember the Mavs one fairly well, the Utah one isn't really ringing any bells.

Can't forget about that layup over Kurt Thomas in this past 1st round too. No need to explain it, I'm sure you know what I'm talking about. He just hung there, I couldn't even believe he got that shot up.

Yeah, one of the sickest shots I've ever seen. I nearly fell out of my seat.

Mine has to be when John Stockton sent the Jazz to the Finals for the first time at the buzzer, in Houston, Game 6. Just unbelievable, the Rockets got confused on the inbounds play, and Stock was wide open, takes a step or two to get a closer look, and pulls up before Barkley could get any closer, and drains it, nothing but freaking net, you just knew it was in. I was like 9 at the time, and I think I jumped as high as Stockton did afterwards. It was so cool.

My favorite game that I've ever been to would be the Jazz/Nuggets, a while back. It was the biggest comeback in NBA history. We were down 70-35 at halftime, and EVERYONE was leaving from the lower deck (go figure). There were tons of seats open. So my Dad and I cruised to about the 15th row, midcourt, on the side with the benches. Anyway, the Jazz came out after halftime and I don't think anybody said a word, or even made a noise during warmups, they seemed focused. And they came back to win 107-103, the place might as well have been packed, it was still real loud. It was funny to look around you toward the end of the game, because the lower bowl was almost full, probably with people like us from the top. So sweet.
