Quote from: Deadspin
A group of Kenyan schoolchildren had already recreated Boston's misery, but they make up for it with this one, from Game 5 of the 1987 NBA Eastern Conference finals. Except for Bill Walton's dopey high-five, it's all hereóIsiah Thomas's pass, Larry Bird's steal, Dennis Johnson's layup, the hugs, the cheers, Johnny Most's famous call. (One child even references Bill Simmons, who was at that game, by holding a sign that says "Future Sports Guy.") The orphanage is trying to raise money for a playing field, and the cause certainly seems worthy enough. Could we please have these kids reenact all of Isiah Thomas's mistakes?

Yeah that's a pretty clever way to get donations.

I don't remember seeing Bill Laimbeer jumping up and down in excitement and hugging Larry and DJ at center court during the celebration.
