The NBA's 72 "Greatest" Moments: Carl Lewis's National Anthem
This qualifies as one of the 72 “Greatest” Moments in NBA History
Carl Lewis is one of the great athletes in U.S. history. I’m no track and field expert, but winning nine gold medals plus a silver in the Olympics seems pretty good.
Okay, that’s enough praise for Carl Lewis. What we’re here for are the lowlights. For that we can thank the New Jersey Nets and Chicago Bulls, but mostly the Nets.
The Garden State club was hosting the Bulls on January 21, 1993, at the Meadowlands and signed Carl Lewis up to sing the national anthem prior to the contest. The Bulls won the game, 107-94, but all there is to remember really is Lewis’s singing.
