30 for 30: Celtics/Lakers

We’ll just say it – the NBA is terrible these days. It’s a saturated pool of some of the most incredible athletes on the planet,  but most aren’t ready when they enter the League. Don’t get us wrong, we’re all for these young studs taking advantage of becoming multi-millionaires as soon as possible. What we’re not in favor of is having to watch them suck eggs on the hardwood while they develop their games at the highest level.

LeBron James, Steph Curry, James Harden, Russell Westbrook, Kawhi Leonard and Kevin Durant are your headliners these days, but, for the most part, the play itself is pretty bland.

That’s why we can’t wait for a trip back to yesteryear when the NBA was a can’t-miss sport back in the 80s with the incomparable rivalry between Magic Johnson’s Los Angeles Lakers and Larry Bird’s Boston Celtics leading the way.

ESPN’s brilliant 30 for 30 series unleashes a two-part feature on those days back in the 80s with Celtics/Lakers: Best of Enemies.
