Why we love a Celtics-Lakers Final: Magic Johnson’s Skyhook on Kevin McHale

HoopsVibe’s Quick Call: Why do we love having the Lakers and Celtics in the NBA Finals?

Well, these two arch rivals have produced many epic moments. For instance, take game 4 of the 1987 NBA Finals. The great Magic Johnson won the match for the purple-and-gold with a last skyhook over Kevin McHale. 

In the post game press conference, Hall of Famer Larry Bird conceded ‘Magic was the greatest player he’d ever seen’.

Watch Magic’s skyhook and let us know your favourite moment between the Lakers and Celtics?
