Just had 1 of the funniest games of my life in sports.
NBA Finals as the Suns vs Wizards (It's 2018)
Long story short, went down to game 7. The 71-11 Suns (2nd best record ever
) were struggling in the play-offs when trying to be a 3-peat team. Having gone 15-11 up to the final game of the season.
Me vs Wall was literally the series with Kobe (He abandons Lakers in search of his 6th ring with the Suns) vs Beal playing a little part in the series.
Either Wall would own me or I would own him. Game 7 was the 2nd ever game I played to go into OT when Wall missed a free throw to go 4 points up with little time remaining. VHX hits a 3 pointer and it goes OT.
Back and forth from both. Lead by this point has swapped 33 times, no lie. Beal shoots a 3 pointer to take the lead but misses and off that same ball I get it and aim for a 3 pointer to end it for us and I miss! :'( Luckily it was tied. 2OT.
Literally more of the same. I turnover and lose the ball twice in this quarter but Wall isn't doing any better and it's still neck and neck. I get 2 free throws to put us 3 or 4 points a head and I choke massively and miss both. I do suck at free throws but not with my pro. I've done them so often I rarely miss.
Off the same ball they get a good 2 points from sexy team play with 4 seconds left. At this point I'm thinking this is going to 30T and remembered that is a VC getting requirement in career. With the seconds left I run up and get to just over half court and decide to try my luck whilst thinking the said VC requirement and I get lucky as fuck! We win the series, the 3-peat and me the 4th MVP finals title!
I then retire since I've done enough to get into the HOF and get the achievement.
