The Microwave's 0.07 shot gets further immortalized, in Legos

As it has been known to do, has produced a video of the top five moments in NBA Finals history - in Legos that is. Among them, Vinnie Johnson's shot in Game 5 of the 1990 NBA Finals that gave the Pistons their second consecutive championship.
The Pistons took the ball out of bounds with 20 seconds remaining and Isiah Thomas dribbled the clock down before passing to Johnson. "The Microwave" as he was known, got the ball with about three seconds remaining and drained a 14-footer with just 0.07 remaining to all but secure the Bad Boys' second title.

Also canonized are Gar Heard's turnaround jumper from 1976 and Michael Jordan's famous push-off from 1998.
Tauntr also recently Legoized Chris Webber's infamous timeout in the 1993 national championship game.
