It has been 25 years since John Starks performed one of the most memorable dunks ever in Madison Square Garden.
In Game 2 of the 1993 Eastern Conference Finals, Starks had the ball on the right wing. He saw a screen coming to his left, but instead of using it, he went to the right side with a clear lane to the hoop. He soared into the air, and with his left hand, threw down a dunk over Michael Jordan and Horace Grant in the closing seconds in what would be a Knicks win.
After sitting down to analyze his dunk again, Starks admitted that he doesn't think it would have still been talked about today if it wasn't done in The Garden.
"If it had happened anywhere else, people wouldn't still be talking about it," Starks told MSG Blog. "But it happened at The Garden, and these were the Bulls. They were the champs and had been giving it to us for so many years.
"For New Yorkers, the play was like saying, 'Yeah, right back at you.'"
Unfortunately the Bulls would go on to win the series, and eventually, the NBA title that year. But Starks' dunk still resonates today with Knicks fans as one of the best moments MSG has ever seen.
