    I gotta make time to watch this entire game. What a classic.

    Nice to see the prime Bird at work. He goes after rebounds as fiercely as anyone ever has. And his defense was pretty damn good here too. Some of the best outlet passes you'll ever see. It's instant...he gets the ball and it's on its way to a teammate heading the other way.

    A couple of cool Dr J moments too.



    Couldn't help thinking how Bird would be attacked if he played today for missing that free throw and not getting near the ball on their last possession with a chance to push the lead to 3 points.

    Check out 11:23. Bird would have to apologize for that if he did it today. The media would probably be all over it calling him an a-hole. I don't blame him though. I would get sick of the grabbing too.

    edit: Read this in the comments...sum it up pretty well:

    It also may have been the best playoff series in NBA history. Two evenly matched rivals who both finished the regular season with identical 62-20 records. They split the 6 regular season games with each other 3-3. This series had 5 of the 7 games decided by margins of 1pt, 2pts, 2pts, 2pts and 1pt. Incredible.

    When you watch Bird before the back injury, it is just a treat to watch. Not the athleticism of other great players, but damn, he got it done.
    Taylor Swift is nice to look at. Adele can sing.

    David Lee Roth did the impossible. He made Van Halen better. Deal with it!
