ever watch Hardwood Classic throwback games on NBATV?
i try to catch as much of these as i can...yesterday i watched game 2 of the 1986 first round matchup between the bulls and the celtics. that was that classic game when jordan went into the garden and dropped 63 in a double OT thriller; chicago still ended up losing that game 135-131, and eventually the series, but it was one hell of a game. that was my first time seeing a jordan game from the 80s. he still had hair and was just coming off a broken foot injury that had sidelined him for the duration of the '85 season. at that point, he had his whole illustrious career in front of him, just a young phenom still trying to make a name for himself. he was brilliant...but noticably raw compared to the prolific, weathered jordan of the 90's. not to mention larry bird...he didnt score any in the 1st quarter of that game, and ended up with like 36. he got real hot in the third quarter...he was hitting everything. electrifying game...any of yall ever catch any of these games?
