I’ve seen it, it’s pretty great. Wish the NBA would bring that back

Who knew Pete was such a bad shot? He had to resort to trash shots to win.

Saw The Pistol play all his games in his freshman season in the Old Cow Palace, many of his games with the Jazz in the Dome & I will always say one his best plays ever, not a shot, was when he came down full speed full dribble & was stopped by a defender at midcourt. He stopped on a dime, turned around, back facing away from the goal, and he bounced passed a bullet to a streaking Jazz player on the right wing. Between his & the defender's legs. That defender just stood there, motionless & speechless as the Dome went nuts.

Maravich is the last person I'd want to play in horse. His ball tricks and shots are legendary.

"Trash shots?" How do you play? Just a bunch of jumpers? You sound fun.

Gervin kept doing bank shots, which he knew Pete never bothered to practice. The only time Pete banked them was on layups.

I'd say his unbeatable NCAA scoring title is proof enough that he can shoot.

I didn't say it was a bad HORSE strategy, just surprised at the shots he missed vs. the ones he made.

See my second post. Pete hated bank shots. Why bank it from 20 feet if you can swish it? Gervin knew that.

Lots of. Great vids on that page of Pete. He's my earliest idol very thankful for my dad taking me to every home game in his career. The Cow Palace was quite the venue...

I remember watching this. Pete made it to the finals. Unfortunately he got a significant injury and could not compete in the finals. I don’t recall if his injury was the blown out knee.

On a different note, here is a video of his 68 points versus the Knicks, shot by shot. He fouled out on a questionable call with about 2 1/2 minutes left. You can also see Phil Jackson playing for the Knicks. And I was actually at that game.

I miss the Jazz being in New Orleans. I grew up a Jazz fan and hated it when they left. I've never been able to endorse the Pelicans. I wish the current team would be able to adopt the Jazz name and the Mardi Gras colors.

Of course, I can't accept the Houston football team being called the Texans, and I wasn't even an Oilers fan. I'm just an old fart.

I remember these, too. Didn't CBS run them during NBA halftime shows? Or, were they run in the off season? Going watch, now. Watch me be wrong.
