HANG TIME HEADQUARTERS – Where were you on the night Patrick Ewing rolled to 25 points and 12 rebounds, Derek Harper handed out seven assists and the Knicks beat the Rockets 91-84?
Let me help.
Where were you on the night of O.J. Simpson chase in the White Bronco?
It was 17 years ago tonight when the Rockets and Knicks Game 5 of The NBA Finals was shrunk to fit into a lower corner of our TV screens as O.J. and his buddy Al Cowlings took the L.A.P.D. on the most famous police chase in American history.
June 17, 1994 was a Friday, just like this year. I was sitting in the front row courtside at Madison Square Garden, trying to keep one eye on the Ewing, Hakeem Olajwon, John Starks, Sam Cassell and the game in front of me and the other on one of the most bizarre scenes ever played out on live television.
