Though the title of the game was "Duke Nukem 3D" the game was built on a heavily modified version of the Doom engine. DN3D utilized some tricks to create the illusion of 3D environments, but was not a true 3D game like Quake. It was "2.5D" like Doom.

If you played Doom with the keyboard only, you were DOIN IT WRONG!

You could play that game with the mouse. Of course aiming up and down didn't mean anything since it was a 2.5D game. Quake was the first true 3D shooter (of consequence) so playing with the mouse was pretty much a requirement.

Every single NHL team in a US city that isn't Boston, Detroit, Chicago, Pittsburgh, Philadelphia, New York. Go back to Canada where people care. ;)

There are many like Dr. J's behind the backboard lay-in, Vince Carter jumping over a 7 footer, or Derek Fisher's miracle shot, but my personal favorite is when Michael Jordan switches the ball from one hand to the other in mid air and lays it in during his first Finals appearance against the Lakers. Everytime they show that I still "wow" at it. I think it's more amazing because he did in the Finals. I can still hear Marv Albert saying, "Michael Jordan, a SPECTACULAR move!"

Pretty awesome.

ASK_Story

I'd argue against that one A) b/c I'm a Laker fan and still am bitter about that series and B) because it wasn't necessary for Jordan to switch hands on the play. He could have easily laid it in right-handed because no one went up to challenge the shot at all.

[QUOTE="manningbowl135"]Fisher's miracle shot shouldn't have counted, so I'm definitely against that. My favorite is Larry Bird tracking down his own rebound and making the shot in the same motion.NetYankEagle

The ball was already in the air when the red light from the backboard lit as they viewed it on ultra slow-mo, so I dont know why are you doubting the outcome of that play.

The clock started late.

wtf no it wasnt. No one doesnt even argues about that play to this day.

guess what -- the game was played in SA. If the clock started late, it's the hometown clock operator's own fault. At any rate, Tim Duncan hit a BS prayer to put the Spurs up to begin with. As Shaq said - "one lucky shot deserves another."

Duncanface = pwnt.

1. Tim Duncan's 4step to the basket dunk

2. Kobe getting ZERO FTA the whole game. Yea right.

3. Odom's goaltend on Parker in the final minute was actually a clean block. Watch it again

4. Fisher's shot hit the rim.

5. Odom, Fish, Farmar, and Vujacic all got in early foul trouble on touch fouls

6. Barry traveled (he shuffles feet) on the last shot before getting fouled.

If anyone got shafted in this game by the refs, it was the Lakers. Justice was served. Eat it Laker haters.

If it's not the PSU, then it's bad RAM or the motherboard's gone kaput (or a component of the mobo...like fan over the northbridge chip)
