Theo Ratliff: You’re talking about a tremendous competitor. To this day, I still don’t know how he did the things that he did and how he was able to push through certain injuries. When he sprained his ankle, it looked like he broke his ankle, but then he’d be right back out here. His will and determination and pain tolerance was right up there with Kobe. He was just able to will himself to do certain things. When we were down, we knew where to go. We’d find him, he’d find the ball, and he would just take over games. Just from his leadership on the floor, that helped us be at our best. We had a lot of guys who were just kind of journeyman guys who hadn’t really stepped out and came into their own when we came over to the Sixers to play alongside him – guys like Aaron McKie, Eric Snow, George Lynch. He helped push us and elevated our game and our status as NBA players. He’s a tremendous guy, a tremendous person as well. Very giving, very family-oriented. He takes his time, even to this day, to speak to your kids and give his story and talk about what he did and the ups and downs of his life. He’s just a tremendous individual.
Eric Snow (76ers guard): To be honest with you, we kind of expected it to be the Knicks. That was what we expected based on things we were hearing and how things finished (in the regular season). I don’t want to say it’s a surprise, because anything can happen, but it just wasn’t what we expected. From a team standpoint, we were kind of like, ‘Whatever happens happens.’ From a series standpoint, all you kind of heard was us playing the Knicks because of the rivalry (between the cities of New York and Philadelphia) and being close (geographically). Kyle Lowry (15-year-old 76ers fan): Come on. Come on. That was life. Philly was the Sixers, the Eagles, the Phillies. That was life, to be honest. That’s just what it was at the time.
The Raptors surely did not expect Jones and Snow to have the shooting nights that they had. Still, they had a chance to win. Just inside of the final minute, Carter set up Curry for a 3-pointer to put the Raptors within one, and the 76ers missed two chances to extend their lead, although they did manage to eat 50 total seconds off the shot clock because of an offensive rebound. After McKie took the 76ers’ final non-shooting foul, the Raptors had two seconds to make a play. With Curry, guarded by Snow, inbounding, Peterson set a screen on McKie, who was on Carter. Carter then came around on a curl. As the 76ers were switching everything, Hill left Peterson to chase Carter. Snow: When (the shot) got up I was like, ‘How did he get the ball?’ I was thinking, ‘How did he get it, out of all people?’ I was guarding Dell Curry if I remember right. I was just like, ‘I’m not letting him get the ball.’ So I was thinking, ‘How did he get the ball? Why does he have the ball?’
Bummed that you lost to Michael Jordan in the Finals? Might as well make a little money off of it. Former NBA player Eric Snow was a member of the 1995-96 Seattle SuperSonics, a team led by Shawn Kemp and Gary Payton that managed to take Jordan’s Chicago Bulls to six games in the 1996 Finals before losing. Nearly 20 years later, Snow is auctioning off an autographed pair of the black-and-red Air Jordan XI signature sneakers that were worn by Jordan himself during Game 3 of the 1996 Finals. Grey Flannel Auctions listed the sneakers this week with an opening price of $5,000. By early Wednesday morning, bidding was up to $6,655 and expected to climb much higher before the auction ends on June 18.
