Would you rather have had Kyle hit the 3 for the W, or win as we did with 3


The only benefit of the former is that it'd preclude the argument that we won because of a soft call (it wasn't). While the pressure and drama of the free throws was unparalleled, winning with a 3 at the buzzer in the flow of the game would have been memorable as heck as well.

I was at the game, and I suspect the explosion of emotion that was unleashed incrementally when KG kept hitting his FTs would simply have occurred all at once at the buzzer. A buzzer-beating, game-winning, Championship appearance-clinching shot might have even surpassed Mamadi's shot in terms of joy. Might have also resulted in more cardiac arrests.
