    Interesting. We know about some of the less flattering details of his personal life. I'm interested in seeing if they touch on his leaving Houston and what spin they put on it.

    Fox Sports Net advertises in their ad, that they are going to tell the story of Hakeem, including, when he almost left the Rockets right before they ended winning the back to back Championships.

    Which of course, the Rockets Championship would have never happend.

    They also showed a clip of Rudy.

    We'll just have to wait till Sunday.

    Man, this is a very touching program. FOX did a excellent job of condensing his journey into 1 hour. Anyone who DOESN'T want Hakeem back in town after watching this show isn't a true Rockets fan....

    This thing was great. Wonderful story. Nicely done. However, one thing I kept doing, was wanting the rest of the story, such as, "O.K. great they won that first championship against the Knicks, but how about showing Hakeen's block of John Starks in Game 6 near the buzzer or that they had to come back against Phoenix and Clutch City was born." Or how about how he destroyed the Admiral in the 95 playoffs and had a monster game against him on the night the Admiral received the MVP award. Or how about how they were the 6th seed and...

    And then I had to remind myself of two things -- 1) this was focused on and about Dream, not everything the teams did, and 2) they only had an hour.

    I wish they would have included the fact that managerment had changed prior to the championships.

    Yeah the commercials got on my nerves, but nevertheless it was a pretty good program. It brought back so many memories. Too bad Dream couldn't finish his career here.

    I'm a year younger than Dream.Despite the commercials,the show brought back that flood of memories and I left the viewing with a feeling of amazement that it's been 20 years.My friends and I would make that trek over to UH and Fonde to watch PSJ religiously.We feel privileged to have witnessed, from the beginning,this phenomenon,but for those who haven't had that chance,this piece gives you an idea of how so many factors can fall into place,like the tumblers in a lock,creating a legend.
    BTW...That dunkathon against Louisville was probably the most exhiliarating college game I've ever seen.They don't usually show much foootage of it(Clyde's sweet jam inc.),so it was great to see again..compared to the endless highlights of the Monday final that lead me to change the channel immediately.
