Yall remember how Mike Finley used 2 do!
CHI TOWN PRODUCT DOIN IT BIG!
LOL, this was hilarious!
Finley was a terrific player. Very similar to what Jason Richardson is now. A knockdown shooter when left open. Solid pull up off the dribble. Terrific athlete. Great hops and competed in dunk contests. Not the greatest of ball handling skills. Finley was probably a little better, but similar in style.
And people clowned him for weeks about that cartwheel dunk.
Jerome Williams always finds a way to make it to every NBA all-star game.

Finley was an underrated player in his prime. Being from Oklahoma I grew up obviously before the Thunder, so I watched the Texas teams, and he was hands down one of my favorite players for multiple years.
