I was just a 12-year old boy at that game. It's still the only NBA Finals game I've ever been to. Sitting up in the nosebleeds behind the basket where Nick missed those darn free throws. He really did lose his confidence after that and he wouldn't drive to the basket anymore. He simply didn't want to be sent to the line.

Not many in this city will be happier than Nick to see the Magic win in these NBA Finals. For what it's worth, when I think of Nick I think of the steal from Jordan and the 3 that beat the Lakers when he did the head bang. That was hilarious!

Despite what anyone thinks, says, or does - Nick Anderson will ALWAYS be a hero to me and probably my all time favorite player, missed shots or not. Don't get me wrong - I love Dwight, Rashard, and Jameer, and a few others who have come and gone, but I grew up watching Anderson from day 1 in 1989. I hope the Magic pull out with the trophy, because this Orlando Magic legend deserves to have a ring, even if he had nothing to do with winning it.

It always amazes me how everyone can goat a player who does something at the end of the 4th, and totally forget about all the misses and everything else every player could have done throughout the entire rest of the game up to that point.....same way in all sports, really.

Hey Orlando fans, best of luck in your series against the Fakers! I am so happy your team was able to beat the Cavs and sore loser LeBron. I an a celtics fan, and watched the entire series with the Magic, gaining respect for your team. And the team is a class act, very professional. I'll be rooting for you guys in the Finals

That was a sad game... but as others have already said- it wasn't just Nick's fault that we were even in that position. This should be a great series- we may be the underdogs again, but this team seems to thrive on that. We'll see you all on Tuesday! Go Magic!

Good. He deserves to be haunted for his failure and I hope he stays that way for the rest of his life.

Seriously, shut up.

I was at the game when he stole the ball from Jordan and that is how I remember him, not for free throws in one game.
