Nasty, disrespectful and just plain awesome. The setting was Game 6 of the Eastern Conference Semifinals between the Bulls and their rival Knicks at Chicago Stadium on May 20th of 1994. The moment was when Scottie Pippen threw down arguably the best poster dunk of all-time on Patrick Ewing. A dunk that Pippen — a master poster maker, especially with Knicks — even credits as his best.
“That’s probably got to be at the top,” he said. “Any time you dunk over a seven-footer and a so-called shot blocker, it’s something. It’s probably one of the most replayed dunks of mine that you see.”
Because of the hundreds of times we have seen the replay, we know that Pippen is full of it when he tries to downplay the dunk.
“That was probably the easiest dunk I ever did,” Pippen jokingly said. “I think I must have crossed Derek Harper over at half court because when I see the picture of it, he’s back [near the top of the key] wondering what happened. All I remember is catching the ball and I don’t know how Patrick even got down there. It was such a weird play.”
Pippen also claimed it was just momentum that carried him over Ewing but nobody is buying that. I guess it was the momentum that made Pippen walk over and say what he said to Spike Lee too.
In a losing effort, Ewing did have a game-high 26 points, 14 rebounds, and 4 blocks…just unfortunately for him, he didn’t block this famous moment from happening.
Which was turned into art…
