ESPN's running a classic NBA games marathon (again), but a lot of lesser-known games that didn't get as much pub.

On right now is a regular-season game in 1987 between the Sixers and what I consider to be the greatest Laker team of all time.

A healthy Andrew Toney (I thought it was only a myth), Maurice Cheeks and a young Charles Barkley lead Philly. Toney really is fun to watch. His jumper is crazy smooth.

I watched a good part of the Pistons-Knicks game on earlier. Gotta love Ernie Grunfield in short shorts.

I don't get why those NY fans don't want Isiah, he's pretty darn good.

You bet your *** I recorded that game on DVD...

How big a hog was Ernie Grunfeld? Bernard King on his team and did he pass him the ball once?

Sometimes I wished we'd have kept Cliff Levingston. He handed us our *** in 1991 as a member of the Bulls, and proceeded to hand LA their *** in the finals....

I'm sure that comment was well-recieved....

Can someone record and upload this game? I would like to make a VCD out of the file if possible.

Yeah, the Celtics were pretty easy to hate during that era. They had great teams but didn't win with class especially Auerbach. Heinson has always been a big time homer.

I didn't mind when the Sixers would lose to the Lakers because I always liked Riley,Magic and Jabbar but just like Jay most people in Philly hated the green guys with a passion. :)

As far Toney in 1987 as a fan of his it was kind of sad watching him he was only a shell of the player he was early in his career. He had lost his explosive 1st step at that stage of his career the stress fractures in his feet never healed properly.

I don't know if this was posted on PD recently but NBA.com had a great feature of the top playoff moments in NBA history. There is a video clip for all of the moments. Isiah is featured on there a couple of times and there are alot of Pacers moments with Reggie.

That's right, baby. And the '83 Sixers were the best team ever.

Don't forget, the 1980s/ CBS-era NBA only consisted of three teams (Celtics, Lakers, and Sixers). Nobody else was "worthy" of nationally televised games... well, Detroit finally got a few in the late 1980s.

Andrew Toney and Mo Cheeks - now that's a backcourt for today's so-called "new" NBA.
