Are You Ready for Game 7? Are you Sure?

Friday, October 28th, 2011

It is said that all good stories have a beginning, a middle, and an end. Last night’s game may have had a beginning and middle so sloppy that was at times hard to watch, but boy, did the ending make up for it.

Just how good was it? I can’t see how Gerald Laird’s celebration isn’t enough to convince, but for the stat-heads out there, I’ve included the full list of the 10 top-rated games in our history below, including last night’s epic that slid into the #6 spot.
