May 22, 1993. Sonics 103-Houston 100, Game 7, Western Conference Semifinals.
Looking at that boxscore, the first item that reaches out and grabs me by the collar is the Sonics' bench for that game:
Why does that grab my attention, you ask? Because all four of those reserves would start for this year's team, and it wouldn't even be a question.
To help remember the game, enjoy this bit of nostalgia, as Ricky Pierce attempts to completely fold his body in half while preparing for his free throws.
And GP went 2-14 with one assist! How did we win that one?
Haha just what I was thinking. And Kemp didn't do much better, way to show up for game 7 fellas...
In February of 1993, the trade whereby Benoit Benjamin -- along with the draft rights of Doug Christie, who was a goddamn jackass for holding out -- was dealt for for Sam Perkins (a.k.a., "Big Smooth") ended up being a masterful stroke of genius by "Trader" Bob Whitsitt.
