Jim Valvano and North Carolina State in the 1983 NCAA Championship game. The Wolfpack's 54-52 win over Houston was one of the biggest upsets in NCAA tournament history and arguably had the most memorable ending. Who can forget Lorenzo Charles putting in Dereck Whittenburg's air ball with one second remaining and then watching Valvano run around the court looking for someone to hug?

You had the wrong Mets Game 6 of 1986. The sixth game of the National League playoffs against the Astros was far superior to that of the World Series.

My list would certainly include Game 7 of the 1960 World Series, in which Bill Mazeroski of the Pirates hit his celebrated ninth-inning home run to beat the Yankees 10-9.

With no disrespect toward the baseball players on your Oct. 25 cover and no matter how many stories and photos you have of him inside your magazine, Wilt Chamberlain, the greatest offensive force in basketball history, should have graced the cover of SI one last time.
