Nets-Magic in 1994, back when the Magic had Shaq. The Nets quadruple-teamed him and he kept kicking it out to Byron Scott, who made like eight threes that night. The Nets lost. A team-to-fan relationship was born.

Note: It might have been Nets-Pistons of the same year. We got a 7 game package and I forget which game was first.

Actually I just found the box score and it definitely wasn't the first game I saw, but the first I remember. And it was Dennis Scott, not Byron...mixed up names.

I remember Shaq missed at least one, maybe two dunks where the ball just went flying off the rim. He still dominated.

Portland Trailblazers @ Los Angeles Lakers

The Final Laker Regular Season Home Game At the Famous Great Western Forum in Inglewood, CA. Also, game #50/50 of the 1998-1999 NBA Lockout Season.

Memorable Moment in that game of course, Glen Rice, 8/10 3-pt FG for a game high 40 points.

First game i remember going to was Lakers bulls @ the Great Western. I think it was like magic's 3rd game back from retirement. Bulls won 99 to 84 i think pippen was the leading scorer. off night for MJ.

It was actually last year I went with my exex girlfriend and her two other friends. They were Suns fans. We went to Cleveland and watched the Cavs vs the Suns. Lebron had like 18 er 20 points in the 1st quarter and I was like, "O my god am I gonna witness Brissy beat Kobe's record?" Luckally he fell back to earth and Shawn Marion hit the game tying shot and sent it to OT. Where I witnessed Lebron choke. At the FT line as well. When we left the quieted building I held my sign high ...

I SHOOT BETTER FREE THROWS THAN LEBON

I got heckled so much it was awesome. Good times, good times.

A Lakers game. I don't even remember who they played; I was a youngster. Sadly, I remember the atmosphere at the Great Western Forum was better than that at the Staples Center.

Timberwolves vs. Sixers in 1996-97 season. I remember it was pretty hyped up because of the Iverson/Marbury rivalry thing during their rookie seasons.

My first ever game was like 3 or 4 years ago. I went to see the Clippers who were playing the Pacers in Staples. The clippers lost so bad that everyone started leaving in the 3rd quarter. I would never see another clipper game again

You will. It's way better than watching at home even if you get the cheap seats. It's the best when you got the place rockin. :)

My first game was the Blazers/spurs in 1983, I got to see Artis Gilmore and the George"the iceman"Gervin.

My second was probably the most memorable looking back Blazers/Bulls the big Sam Bowie/Micheal Jordan showdown. I think we all know who won that one!

LA Lakers vs. Kings April 9, 2009.

It wasn't much of a game since the Lakers man-handled the Kings. I was 3 rows behind the Laker bench, and 5 feet away from Kobe when he was fixing his shoe at the scores table. Too bad Kobe didn't play in the 4th quarter that night. But still, Lakers won and they were so many Laker fans that night.
