CAPTION THIS: Robert Horry hits GW 3-pointer in 2005 NBA Finals

There aren't many Detroit sports fans who don't remember Robert Horry's (aka Big Shot Bob) 3-point dagger against the Pistons in Game 5 of the 2005 NBA Finals at The Palace. Of course, Rasheed Wallace accepted the blame for the blown coverage, the defending champion Pistons missed a chance to step on the Spurs' throats and later lost in Game 7 after stealing a Game 6 victory in San Antonio.

Flash forward six years later, an advertisement for the Finals on ABC/ESPN in the new ESPN the Magazine has caption bubbles above the heads of each player (and the ball) in frame on that particular play. The only person, though, it doesn't "quote" is Wallace.
What do you think it should say?
