  • Long-suffering Wizards fans will remember this moment. And while I’m not about to call Bulls fans “long-suffering” the fact that this Bulls squad made it here was a triumph.

    It’s game 5 of the opening round of the 2005 playoffs. The Bulls and Wizards are tied with two games each. The score is also tied, with 5 seconds left on the clock.

    This moment is due to the perseverance of underdogs. Janerro Pargo? Ben Gordon? Those aren’t the most recognizable names. And while we all know Gilbert Areans’ name (because he’s great at basketball and for no other reason, certainly not for anything negative or untoward) let’s not forget he had quite a few doubters early in his career.

    To realize the strength of the underdog spirit contained in this arena, we gotta rewind.
