What was the greatest NBA Finals Series of All Time?
This year's finals between the Heat and the Spurs has a chance to be only the third seven-game finals in this young century. What would you say was the most memorable finals in NBA history?
In 1984 Bird's Celtics beat Magic's Lakers in 7 games.
The rivalry between those two teams and those two players made for some great finals.
The finals in recent years pale in comparison, in my opinion.
Maybe I'll change my mind. Game 6 and 7 Heat vs Spurs were incredible drama. I mean, they brought the trophy out anticipating near the end of game 6 that the Spurs would win. They didn't, and then lost game 7 in another tense game.
Yes, Game 6 was a classic. I like your choice of 1984. After the Lakers played Philadelphia in 1980, '82, and '83; and Boston played Houston in 1981, the Bird-Magic rematch of the 1979 NCAA title game was a long-time coming.
1994 - Knicks vs. Rockets. Although my guys came out on the losing end, the games were mostly good, very close. The Knicks played ferocious D in those days and did their best to pound Akeem. But he proved too tough. Starks went cold in game 7. But well played for the most part.
1980 - Sixers vs. Lakers - Made Magic a star when he filled in for Kareem in Game 6. Although it only went 6 games, all except Game 6 were close. Lakers' coach Paul Westhead made the bold request of Magic and he came through. Ironically, it is believed that Magic helped lead the charged to get Westhead fired the next season (Magic denied this). It was the start of an amazing run by the Lakers that would not end until 1991.

I think the Mavs really earned it, 2-0, as of today May 5. Dirk is hard to stop. Plus Only three NBA teams have come back to win a best-of-seven series after losing the first two at home. They are in the same situation...

Who will win the NBA finals? Los Angeles Lakers, Denver Nuggets, Orlando Magic, or Cleveland Caveliers? I'd say LA over Orlando in 6. Magic can't guard Sasha!
