: : Y'all enjoy this documentary as much as me? Old school basketball and pure NBA history!! This rivalry is why I'm a Bulls fan and I'd like to thank my dad for rooting for the Celtics in the 80's. I know that sounds weird, but as a young man trying to find his way in the world I surely couldn't root for my dad's Celtics. I couldn't root for the team he didn't like either because that was too easy. Enter MJ and the Bulls. The Bulls were different and they seemed destined for something greater even though they couldn't beat the Celtics or the Pistons. They were a highlight reel waiting too happen but they couldn't win the most important games. But going through those losing years in the late 80's only made the 90's that much sweeter. I remember in '91 my mom taking me to the grocery store just so I could wear every piece of Bulls gear I had and to have people acknowledge the Championship. And yes, we beat the local team from LA known as the Lakers. But.....back to my original point. The Celtics/Lakers rivalry has been phenomenal for the sport of basketball and you gotta appreciate it if you love this game!!!
: Yes! Wife and I watched it twice!
Our whole family watched it this weekend. Even having lived through it, I didn't remember a lot of it. Could have done without seeing the Ralph Sampson shot again!
Would love to see a "director's cut" as you know there is more on the cutting room floor!
Just a great special!
