What a great read. I remember exactly where I was that night and as soon as the brawl happened I was on the phone calling people to make sure they saw it too.
That team really was a great team. Most sports writers predicited us to come out of the east that year. That game was a nationally televised game and probably was one the biggest sporting events going on that week( even with the NFL).
It has taken us almost 8 years to get back to a place where we are even metioned in the top half of the eastern conference. This team is on a big upswing and I hope nothing knocks them off of it like what happened 8 years ago. If they keeping playing like they are now, maybe next season we will have the same expectations that the 2004 team did before that one horrible night.
