The most iconic basketball moments of all time

There have been some amazing moments in basketball history. Some players have made legendary shots, while others have accomplished amazing feats. In this brief, we’ll take a look at some of the most iconic basketball moments of all time.

One of the most memorable moments in basketball history was when Michael Jordan made “the shot” to win the NBA Finals for the Chicago Bulls. This moment is etched into the minds of basketball fans everywhere and is considered one of the greatest shots ever taken.

Linsanity (2012)

Considered a fringe NBA player at best, Lin only got his chance out of sheer desperation on coach Mike D’Antoni’s part, and his big break came bright before the team was reportedly planning on cutting him.

Lin dropped 25 points, 5 rebounds and 7 assists in his breakout game against the Nets, sending MSG into absolute raptures. That was the start of a Lin-fuelled seven-game winning streak for the previously awful Knicks, one which included Li dropping 38 on the Lakers, and that was before he nailed a dramatic game-winner in Toronto.

Ray Allen’s famous shot in Game 6 of the 2013 NBA Finals

This shot was incredible because it happened in the NBA Finals, and Ray Allen is not typically known as a three-point shooter.

Ray Allen is considered one of the best shooters of all time, so this shot was extremely impressive. The Miami Heat went on to win the game in overtime and the series.

Kobe Bryant’s final game (2016)

In his final NBA game, Kobe Bryant scored 60 points, including an impressive 23 in the fourth quarter. He led the Los Angeles Lakers to a victory over the Utah Jazz, and ended his illustrious 20-year career in the NBA with an incredible finale.

Bryant has been considered one of the best players in NBA history, so it was fitting that his last game was so memorable. This moment will be remembered for a long time by Kobe Bryant fans and basketball fans alike.

Kareem Abdul-Jabbar’s Skyhook (1971)

Kareem Abdul-Jabbar is considered one of the greatest players in NBA history, and his Skyhook shot was one of the most iconic moments in basketball. This shot was so difficult that few other players have been able to replicate it.

Abdul-Jabbar’s Skyhook was an incredible feat, and it helped him lead the Milwaukee Bucks to an NBA Championship in 1971. This moment is still remembered by basketball fans today, and it solidified Abdul-Jabbar as one of the all-time greats.

These are just a few of the most iconic moments in basketball history. There have been many other great moments, but these are some of the most memorable. These moments have been etched into the minds of basketball fans everywhere, and they will be remembered for years to come.

2000 ncaa basketball champions

Michigan State senior Mateen Cleaves limped his way to the Most Outstanding Player of the 2000 NCAA Tournament. Cleaves sprained his ankle with 16:18 to play in the 2nd half, and this was after Florida had trimmed Michigan State’s double digit halftime lead to 50-44. Cleaves returned about four minutes later, and immediately helped lead the Spartans on a 16-6 run to put the game out of reach.

The lone top-seed remaining would bring order to a tournament filled with upsets as they salted away the victory for the school’s second National Championship 1979. Michigan State coach Tom Izzo earned his first title, from his second straight final four appearance. Morris Peterson led the Spartans with 21 points.
