The Los Angeles Lakers and Boston Celtics rivalry dates back to 1980’s glory days of Showtime. Larry Bird vs. Magic Johnson. The Garden vs. the Forum. Some of the young bulls don’t know much about it, but a new ESPN 30 For 30 special will put them on game. As you can see from the trailer, the two sides hated each other and played physical every minute. It was East vs. West for the championship on many occasions and the hatred still lives to this day.
Shit, just go to Bill Simmons’ Twitter feed to see how much he hates on the Lakers every minute he gets.
Look out for the two-part film to air on ESPN on June 13.
