Celtics - Lakers Is Basketball
by Mo Johnson
Nice article Paul. For me, the great Celtics - Lakers rivalry is what basketball is all about. Looking back now I see how lucky I was to grow up in the '80's and get to see and be part of really, the amazing Celtics - Lakers NBA Championship Series.
Bird vs Magic, Kareem vs Parish, McHale vs Worthy, Pat Riley vs KC Jones, etc. And, the games and series' were always close. In retrospect, I see how amazing it was and likely will never be repeated.
Too bad for the younger generation. I guess they have the Disney Channel, YouTube and Facebook. Personally, I wouldn't trade what I had.
The Celtics - Lakers rivalry really was (and continues to be at a lesser scale) special.
