For old times sake, we’re going to take a quick ride on Doctor Emmitt Brown’s DeLorean all the way back to April of 1993. Newest Celtic Shaquille O’Neal was a svelte rookie playing for the Orlando Magic, hosting the Celtics in a late season game. The Celtics had just come off a thrilling victory against the Miami Heat, led by Reggie Lewis. The C’s must have partied a bit too hard on South Beach that night because they looked real sluggish in this game.
Watch the likes of Reggie Lewis, Dee Brown, Xavier McDaniel, Kevin Gamble (least Celtic to wear #34 before Paul Pierce), Robert Parish and Alaa Abdelanby (starting for the injured Kevin McHale) go up against rookie Shaq. One of the best parts of this video is listening to Tommy Heinsohn do play-by-play and Bob Cousy provide the color commentary. It also features Jimmy Myers providing the Fox25 halftime report, which has a brief snippet of Danny Ainge lobbying his teammate, Charles Barkley, for MVP. Enjoy.
