While We Are on the Nostalgia Tip, This Guy Was One Sharp Shooting Mother Tucker

Here is a clip of my all-time favorite basketball player, Trent Tucker, nailing two game winning shots against the Bulls. The second shot was hit on Martin Luther King Day 1990 and still ranks as my favorite moment of in Knicks history. It came with one tenth of a second left on the clock and prompted the NBA to make a rule that no player can catch and shoot a shot with less than .3 left on the clock. How many players can say that they altered the NBA rule book? I truly tried to pattern my own game after Trent by hanging around the 3pt line, shooting as soon as I get the ball, and by never driving to the hole, rebounding, or playing defense.
