The NBA Finals are where the unexpected can and will happen. Michael Jordan was never known as a long range marksman, but he became one for a day. Jordan hit six threes in the first half of game one. After hitting his sixth three, Jordan shrugged in what would become a classic sports celebration. Clifford Robinson was in the shot and looked as confused and perplexed as ever after Jordan knocked down his sixth trey. Cliff Robinson went on to have a long and fruitful career in the NBA. Over nearly two decades in the league, he played with Portland, Phoenix, Detroit, Golden State, and New Jersey with no more shrugs coming his way post-1992 NBA Finals.
