    How Jerry West became the logo with only 1 championship? Russell should have been the logo.
    Russell is the finals MVP trophy.

    There is nobody more qualified to be the the logo of the NBA than Jerry West. Certainly other guys worthy but no one more so.

    It wasn't about being the team everyone loved, it was about beating the teams everyone else loved.

    I've spent about a week of my life in Boston, and recently. I heard the accent. Granted it wasn't like the Affleck movies or anything where everyone more or less sounds like a cartoon character.
    I probably know many people from Boston without really knowing it. One person I did know was from Boston had the accent. It's just as distinctive and different from our speech in central Indiana as a New York accent if not moreso.

    Accents aside, this is a really great documentary. I was a little kid when most of his took place so it's​ good to see the whole background of these series. I'm surprised at how many of these games I remember watching.

    Really bummed this documentary looks like it'll conclude with magic/bird, without it getting past the 80's.

    Really feels like there should be a part 4

    They could always do another one. They did that with "The U" documentary.

    Yeah but then you have a disjointed documentary where the Celtics are only relevant for 3 years and one championship.

    I think we know why that happened. Regardless Russell has the Finals MVP trophy which is fitting.

    Watching part 2, man Magic used to make a lot of stupid mistakes at the end of the games, imagine that happening with twitter.

    That was a good documentary. Wasn't planning on watching all 3 parts at once, but I did.

    Highlight of the show for Pacers fans? The random Dudley Bradley clip they threw in. He gets his shot blocked by an Atlanta Hawk at about the 28 minute mark of Part I. But he looked good on the drive.

    If you lived through those years, you would understand that the Celtic teams that came later with Rondo, Pierce and Garnett were nothing compared to the 80's. Not even remotely close as entertaining as the Bird-Magic years.

    Young ones. I just have to say that the Celtics and Lakers made the Spurs look challenged fundamentally...and even had flair, toughness and personality while they did that. As good as Pop's Spurs have been, either one of those teams would have beat them and they would have been more entertaining doing it. Think about it. Both Kareem and Magic Johnson were better than Tim Duncan.

    The Pat Riley comment about still hating Bird and been hard to make a deal with him kind of gives you an idea why the Pacers were never able to make good trades or a lot of trades, GM's probably love the guy but hate making deals with him.

    The narrator characters got to be a bit much, but the content was spectacular.
