Eric Snow Drains Two Jump Shots

Sports fans will be hearing a lot about the San Antonio Spurs winning the 2007 NBA Finals, their 4th in 9 years. Congratulations. Whatever. Let's call that a headline-stealer. The real story from Cleveland is that with 10:33 to go in the second quarter, Eric Snow buried a 16-foot jumper to put the Cavaliers ahead 22-21. The beautiful stroke was assisted by Cleveland Cavaliers' LeBron James. I can assure you that when Snow released the shot, every true Cavs fan around the state of Ohio had a couple months taken off their lives. As if that wasn't enough excitement for Ohioans, the Snowman trotted down the court with 4:43 to go in that same quarter and buried yet another 16-footer, this time assisted by Daniel Gibson to cut the Spurs lead down to 30-29. Snow's relentless effort, heart and determination represent a lot of what he is all about. Going into the fourth quarter, ABC showed the Snowman giving a pep talk to his teammates (the ones that are usually on the court in these big time situations… you know, like Donyell Marshall). He basically said that the Cavs had 12 minutes to keep this season going and it was all up to them. Let's just say the rest of the team didn't look too interested.
