When that shot happened, I was in a Las Vegas sports book watching the game with thousands. Everybody was packed in that casino, I think it was Paris or something. Anyways, I was there from start to finish at the game early so I had a seat with my own monitor. I placed some bets.
This was obviously during the Shaq/Kobe/Phil heyday so yes the entire sports book was packed and any area that was normally a walkway was chock full of standing room lookyloos. When Horry hit that shot it felt like the entire casino erupted in a cheer with high fives everywhere. It was awesome, I never saw such a reaction by so many people. I mean, even people at the Blackjack tables were going crazy even though the shot had nothing to do with the results of their bets.
