Rockets and Suns twitter argument over 20-year-old Dunk

Published Add your comment

The Houston Rockets and Phoenix Suns argued on twitter Sunday night about a dunk that Kevin Johnson threw down over Hakeem Olajuwon 20 years ago.

The Phoenix Suns decided they would celebrate Johnson's dunk at half time of the game between the Suns and Rockets, to commemorate the 20 year anniversary of the incredible play.

The dunk in question happened in game four of the Western Conference Finals in 1994, when point guard Kevin Johnson dribbled baseline and then proceeded to hammer down a viscous one-handed dunk over the best center in the NBA, Hakeem Olajuwon. 

At Half-time, the Suns enshrined the epic playoff moment with a painting given to the mayor of Sacramento, Kevin Johnson. 

Following the game, the after party took to twitter as the Phoenix Suns official twitter account posted some images from the half-time celebration and this is where the Houston Rockets felt obliged to join in.

Firstly the Rockets tweeted the Suns with: "Wow. Maybe we should celebrate @DwightHoward one-handed dunk in 20 years." 

The Suns who were not have their party crashed responded with: "Call us when it happens in the playoffs"

Unfortunately for Phoenix, the Rockets had a trump card hidden up their sleeve. Houston simple responded with this picture, titled "20 years ago".

As everyone knows, Championships are what everyone strives for so the Suns ultimately accepted defeat and said: "Well played, well played."
