20 years ago today, the NBA lost some of it’s Magic.

NBA Lockout Classics: Dr. J vs. Magic & Kareem, 1982 NBA Finals, Game 6. 

Yesterday we had a game that featured Jordan, Pippen, Kobe and Shaq. That’s such a surreal game, if you think about it. Four legends sharing the same court, battling for a lot more than just a ‘W’, especially between MJ and Kobe. Today we have Kareem, Magic, the man that no one can hate even with his terrible ESPN commentary, and Dr. J, one of the greatest players that people forget about.  

Lakers came into this game leading the series 3-2 after stealing the first game of the Finals on the road. Dr. J put up 30 points while Magic went for 13-13-13. 

Philly and Los Angeles would meet again the following year in the 1983 NBA Finals, where Philly would sweep Magic and the Lakers in the infamous “Fo-fo-fo" Sixers’ championship run. 

This game predates Basketball-Reference’s boxscore database but here’s the Wiki page for the series

Tomorrow we’ll have some classic Jordan vs. ‘Nique action.

2 Of The Greatest, Going Head To Head



IMO, the best player of all-time(Jordan) ‘D’-ing up the third best player of all-time(Magic). 

My personal Mt. Rushmore of NBA players would have to be Jordan, Bill Russell, Magic, & Larry Bird. I was lucky enough to have seen all but Russell play in person. This year’s Season Opener, between the Heat & Celtics, was pretty amazing considering their were seven 2011 All-Stars, plus Shaq, all on the floor at the same time. Phenomenal experience for a basketball fan. 

Who are the two best players you have ever seen play against one another in a game**?

**Excluding the All Star game
