Ah, he didn't do it all himself-he had Aides.

Center?

To the eventual delight of Jerry "God damn motherfarking cocksuckers" West.

He symbolically replaced Kareem for the opening tip-off. After that he did just about everything.

He then proceeded to have triple doubles throughout the night and into the early morning.

LOL, can you imagine Magic on a modern training regimen? He's as big as LeBron.

Anything you Lakers haters have to say means nothing.

Winning Time actually did a good job in the season finale based on this game. Kareem gave young Magic an attaboy before the game and that did it. He didn't play that game, but Lakers couldn't have won it without Kareem. I'm going to assume that part is true. If it's not, please don't spoil it for me.

9-3 head-to head titles, 206-164 all time, Celtics. :-*

\oh, and five of those Faker titles belong to Minneapolis, not LA.

Kareem was the p[oint guard the whole time. it was their secret weapon and Subby just  figured it out

Do Championships not count when they are won in flyover states?

Yes. They shouldn't count if your city isn't the one that earned them, I don't care what people (or leagues) say. It cheats the city you left, as far as I'm concerned.

In this specific case, I give Minneapolis the credit for having the good team before they moved to LA. It's like saying all those years in Minneapolis mean nothing because the banners are physically in Soon-To-Be-Renamed-Because-The-Sponsor-Is-Broke Arena.

\and yes, I think Boston should take credit for the 1915 World Series, no matter how many times WCVB left it off their graphic in the last 20 years

Completely agree.   A team is not a franchise.  The only time Dodgers and Giants fans bring up NY and Brooklyn is when they are counting Rings.   They did not grow up watching those teams.

Hooker with a Penis: I miss when the season was over in May


And finals games were tape delayed, and there was 1 nationally televised game per week? No thanks.

Not to mention extending the baseball only sports wasteland between the end of basketball/hockey and the start of football.

Playing first round games at the same time so it didn't drag on forever was alright tho.

I don't agree. If the team leaves the city but doesn't leave the team name, colors, etc, then they are the same team. The team is the franchise. The Oakland Athletics are the same franchise as the Kansas City Athletics as the Philidelphia Athletics. Same with the Cardinals or Rams or Raiders or Giants or Dodgers or Braves. They carry the same records and achievements through the history of the franchise.
When the Browns moved in the mid 90s to Baltimore, they had leave the Browns name, colors and history in Cleveland and they became the Ravens. Then Cleveland got a new version of the Browns. Jim Brown and Otto Graham technically played for the team that's in Baltimore, but the history, stats, records,acheivements stayed in Cleveland, so they're part of that franchise.
An example that sorta plays into what you're saying, though, is that I believe the Baltimore Ravens lay claim to Johnny Unitas, since he never played in Indianapolis. I think Unitas is in on this, too, considered himself a Baltimore guy. Or at one point, St. Louis had a combination of Cardinals and Rams players in their team "ring of honor"
