Stream: The Shot: Teresa Weatherspoon in Game 2 of 1999 WNBA Finals
Teresa Weatherspoon gave a teary-eyed, heartfelt speech when she was inducted into the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame last weekend. The former point guard was known for her leadership as well as one particular moment: “‘The Shot’: Teresa Weatherspoon in Game 2 of 1999 WNBA Finals” is a historical event that can be found on the WNBA YouTube channel for your viewing pleasure. The Houston Comets led the New York Liberty 67-65 and seemed ready to secure their third championship in a row. With just 2.4 seconds left on the clock, Weatherspoon let loose one last shot from half-court that, after bouncing off the backboard and into the hoop, launched an entire arena to their feet in disbelief. The buzzer-beater forced a third and final game, and while Houston won in the end, “T-Spoon” won our hearts.
