Although Gar Heard spent five seasons in Phoenix (1975-80), he will always be remembered as the man who launched "The Shot Heard 'Round The World" in the memorable fifth game of the 1976 NBA Finals. Heard's high-arching jumper as time expired in the second extra period sent the contest into triple OT, the first in Finals history. The shot was also voted by Phoenix fans as the most memorable moment in franchise history during a Suns.com poll in 1998. Gar contributed more than that single shot, though. Over the course of his Suns career, the 6-6 forward averaged 7.5 points and 7.1 rebounds a game.
