With the playoffs in full swing, the NBA is rolling out countless classic playoff highlights to keep fans locked in to every game.
One of the classic highlights I saw a replay of last night was the John Starks dunk over Jordan in 1993.
Growing up, my entire family was Knicks fan. I was one of the rare few who wasn't and loved basking in their many playoff downfalls.
While I could spit off the many times the Knicks broke their heart with ease, there was one card they always played that showed their true greatness. In 1993, the Knicks-Bulls rivalry was in full swing. Mike was the man and everyone knew it. The Knicks had a good team that seemed to lose every big game against the Bulls, but this game was different.
The Knicks were up 3 with a minute left, normally they would blow the lead with a bad shot or turnover, but Starks had something different in mind. He dribbled the ball down the floor, broke his man down and attacked the rim for a monster jam.
Many call this moment "the dunk." Whenever I got into an argument with my cousin about the Knicks, he just pointed to his poster of that play.

Any of you guys remember that dunk by Starks?

I don't remember it but I sure have seen the clip a lot of times.
