    Anyone remember Eddie Johnson? I remember getting all pumped a couple years ago, so much to load him up into the Rockets' starting line-up on NBA ShootOut '98. So, so young.

    Yeah, I sure do remember him. Most of all I remember his shot vs. Utah to win a game- can't remember which one it was (Playoffs?).
    Wasn't he like 35 years old in 98?

    Fast Eddie was the man... He was a Jazz killer... For whatever reason he was able to knock down every jumper against the Jazz...

    He's a great color commentator for the Suns now...

    He was a great player, the highest scoring player in league history not to make an all-star team. And i'll never forget his reaction after he hit that shot, it was simply amazing.

    Actually, Eddie's shot was game 4. Game 6 was Stockton. Stockton's shot also happened to occur on my 16th birthday. [​IMG]

    The Rockets never lose, they just get outscored occasionally
