Almost brutal but a great contest
So intense! These fans had it so good. I wish the NBA had that kind of electricity today.
MMA – with -for some reason – also have a basket ball included….
Was this the year the Rockets made it to the Finals with a 40-42 record? So this series is basically for the Championship.
Bobby Jones showing how to finish a fast break.
Yes Dawkins,Bobby Jones and others from that Era were Inducted and Recognition Resides in The Basketball Hall of Fame where each and everyone deserve and Worthy to Be! I am The God.
I remember watching this game back in the day. In addition to being a great game all around, it also features IMHO one the most underrated 'poster dunks' in NBA history at around 8:57, when Bobby Jones slammed over Larry Bird. Ironically, where Jones took off is in about the same spot as where Dr. J famously dunked over Michael Cooper a couple of years later in the 1983 Finals that the Sixers won. Could've been an offensive foul, could've not. Still a thing of beauty either way.
Love it filthydelphia then and now! An absolutely classless town of Neanderthals!
take a look at some of dr j buckets in traffick and the fact that he was just one option among many in this intense tempo offense..a star of his caliber and a rookie like toney decides the end of this game,,same thing in the 1977 finals loss to walton..project this today..been the superstar in your team and get as many feeds and shots as the rookie on a championship battle..the sixers had all this talent but no strategy to secure the win and horrible coaching that was treating his games as an all star who gets the ball makes the shot type of games..by the way i ve seen toney ball hogging in the presense of the doc many time..imagine if someone had taken such a bad quality shot over kobe or lebron or mj and determined the game as poorly as toney did in his final shot as a freaking fucking rookie..
One step that could be taken to get today's lousy game back to this quality would be to change the three point shot into a 2.5 point shot. A whole extra point for a shot that distance is too much of a reward. The decimal system would work fine in basketball especially if it improved the product. Should also let players fight poorly dressed fans without getting ejected.
Poor Larry had to eat bobby Jones jockstrap on that dunk and get the foul , most distasteful ! 8:58
Love Celtics, but I cant believe that Cornbread Maxwell wasnt thrown out for pushing fan !!!????
if the sixers got moses malone in 1978 they probably win 4 or 5 ships from 78 to 85
Back when basketball was great. These overpaid pussies today wouldn't last a quarter back when men played ball. Fuck the NBA. Bunch of candy-ass bitches.
003 darry dawkins shoulda shot a lot more, if they gave him ball n kept bal from lionel shit the bed hollins win a lot mroe same as celtics fire DJ win more
024 holy shit darryl dawkins sikk give him ball more!
Larry Bird's face and ways is a cross of Lennon- Mc Cartney. Erving is a face sibling of Lienole Ritchie
Nothing like the NBA of the 1980’s!
Wow Kevin McHale was great!
Dawkins aka Chocolate Thunder. I had a ball with his name on it when I was a kid.
Classic Basketball my Sixers and Boston along with Lakers classic series
My god this was when basketball was fun. Today's basketball,nobody touches each other it's a bunch of three point shots slam dunks and no defense.
There's nothing like 1980's NBA.
Fans insulting players is a bad thing. A 6’8” professional athlete attacking a 5’9’ fan is a bad thing.
"Basketball at its very best." 6:48 – Man do I miss these days and this style of ball. You can still feel the intensity just watching this video. Today's players are athletic and high flying but the 3-point shot has changed the game too much. Today it's more about looking pretty and entertaining the crowd and making lots of money. Back in the day, the rivalries were real, the intensity was thick, they played for keeps!
I miss basketball like this…today's basketball is so boring.
That was great, in the final second he threw the ball and made a three point shot. Like they would say" JUST IN CASE, THERE IT GOES, AND YOU ARE GONNA LOVE IT.
Jones had ups
Big brouhaha @3:32
I remember watching this game,Im the same mess now as I was then
What a game. Do you see these type of games in the NBA today? The intensity? No way. Boring!
Spectrum baby! What great memories
A man's game
Basketball heaven! Love you guys forever!❤️
Back when NBA meant No Boy Allowed
Damn, what a game. Thanks for posting
But When Moses Malone came to Philadelphia he pardon the Sixers to a world title ! And dr. J didn't have to carry the team on his back !
Look at all those hall of famers playing in the game..
Parrish looks so much more athletic here than he did later on.
And TINY throws it in from the side at the end of the game for good measure! The announcers apparently did not even notice it! That was when B-BALL was the way it should be played!
As a Sixers fan this is the most devastating loss ever for me. Instead of meeting the Lakers they would have met Houston.
Believe it not this game was blacked out in Philly.
Bobby Jones was underrated! That dude was a beast.
This the real NBA
Bullshit a fan can say what they want to .
Bobby Jones was underrated
Bobby Jones gave Bird a better facial then any salon could on that dunk
Late 70's to late 90"s gave us Lakers, Celtics, Sixers, Pistons, and Bulls…just think of the many great players and titles from theses teams
Hated bobby jones but would have loved him on the Celtics
I'm not trying to get away from script here, and yeah, there's nothing like these 80's rivalries, but I just wanted to talk about a player who never got his just due, but ALWAYS played the right way, played great defense an was a Sixer unsung hero on many occasions back then.
Yeah there was Doc and Dawkins and Toney and Cheeks, but Bobby Jones to me was an allstar!
He came to play every night, played excellent at both ends and was a hero on many nights when other Sixers got most of the attention!
Bobby Jones was the Truth before Paul Pierce!
You would have had to follow the Sixers during the 80's to know what I mean, but he was definitely an important Star peice to their puzzle back in the 80's!!!!!
Great, Great, Great Game!!!!!
This type of basketball never gets old!
Wow, Andrew Toney and Kevin McCale, Rookies!!!
Man, the good Ol' Days…..
My cousins son doesn’t understand why today’s NBA game pisses me off, should send him this video!
What a game!
Fastbreaks, lowpost play and no flagrant 2s.3s were taken strategically not as soon as you crossed halfcourt.
Wow.. teamwork and defense.. what a concept.
Great era of great basketball and I was in 7th grade in 1981
Oh my LAWDIE !!!!! This rivalry was MUST SEE TV back in the day. We were allow to stay up to watch those games. I’m getting a little misty in a MANLY kinda way. Those regular season games had playoff iNTENSITY. I HATED and respected the Celtics. There was definitely more HATE 🤣🤣🤣🤣 It was still GREAT B-ball. Back then there were 3 dominant teams the ‘6ers, Celtics, and Lakers. The Lakers had it soooooo EZ after the Sixers and Celtics kick the snot outta each other. The Bucks were very respectable too with Sidney Moncrief, Brian Winters and Marcus Johnson. That Bucks team was just in the wrong place at the wrong time 🤣🤣🤣🤣
Wow, great basketball! Thanks for the great vid.
Great game. I was 1 year old probably sitting on the couch watching my Sixers with my dad
Looks like the NCAA tournament.
FINGER ROLL BEHIND THE FOUL LINE STOP PLAYING DOC !!!!!!!HAHAHAHAHA
THAT BOBBY JONES DUNK WAS RIDICULOUS HAHAHAHA THAT SHOULD OF BEEN A FLAGRANT SOME KIND OF CHARGE THAT WAS A STRAIGHT FELONY
Basket ball at is very best-🤗🤗
Larry LEGEND!! And look at Mchale with that mop. I knew he was good in the post but DAMN! 😳
The 80s was the best for NBA basketball hands down
LA, Boston, Philly, Detroit, the best.
When is a Bird a Goat? In the NBA.
When the NBA was made of MEN.
The chocolate thunder at his best, RIP Darryl Dawkins. Man, Bobby Jones dunk on Bird was the highlight of the game.
Loved that era of basketball. Every game was played that hard back in the day. Watch a game on Sunday, after church, usually a Bucks, Celtics, or Sixers game, and those players went at it!! Of course as kids, we would go outside and try to do those moves we saw Dr. J completed or shoot like Bird or Kareem. Or pass like Magic. Great times.
Dawkins doesn’t jump he explodes!!! It’s freakish looking n Larry so fucking clutch!!
Love oldskool… ball player attacks a fan….., no matter keep battling!!
Great game ! Remember it like yesterday . Philly fans though, and as is their way, were and are the most unruly, ill behaved fans in all of American sports .
I'm now remembering why I used to like basketball a lot more than I like it now.Notice they are traveling the way they do now.
Notice Bird’s super lucky bounce off the net at 12:22. McHale barely blocked Toney’s shot at 12:52.
This is the era where Jordan was a bitch. Ha Ha.
Mo Cheeks yesterdays Sharife Cooper
Tiny,Cornbread,Legend,Boston Strangler,Chocolate Thunder,The Secretary of Defense and The Doctor! The nicknames the intensity the action the memories!
God I miss 80's basketball!!!!!
All the players in the NBA should watch this game, and stop the flopping!
You know what the hell happened to basketball ?? My god that was basketball at its best!! But damm i feel for Dawkins man poor guy just couldn't get it done !! Or the sixers untill Moses led them to the promised land!! I will never forget that series they just blew through the Lakers in 4 !! Yea real players!! Tough!!
The 80s not only was a great decade for the NBA, it was a great decade for basketball period, high school, NCAA and the NBA.
That guy in that plaid suit throwing stuff at Cornbread was real stupid. He deserved to get popped.
Great post my man! You can really see these players were way better basketball players than these bums are today. Darryl Dawkins was so good and he was considered just a role player behind caldwell jones. How about McHale and parish. And looking at doc it is incredible he scored all his points inside at six six! And bird was just THE greatest white player of all time
Dawkins dunking like Shaq before Shaq was Shaq
well. whenever u have: BOSTON, PHILADELPHIA, or NEW YORK sports teams vying for a TORPHY!!! It`s gonna b some shit. knicks-celtics. celtics-sixers, knicks-sixers. rangers-flyers. patriots-eagles(eagles won SB against pats). giants-pats. yankees-red sox. yankees phillies(used 2 b yanks- A`s, but a`s moved 2 cali). etc
These guys were money. Clutch shooters.
Crazy physical and crazy intense!!
Brent Musburger says that fans pay their way and can say anything they want?….that's some bullshit right there! If I was in that position and a fan says the wrong thing to me…he's getting bust in the f*****g nose!
Real men….Real basketball!Loved these old days of the very best of the very best and that Larry Bird sure broke a lot of hearts!
The physicality of this era. Especially in the east Oh my god!! . Bird was superclutch icewater in his veins I like how they hustled back then three four occasions where everyone is falling over each other like bowling pins. Classic !!!!!!
hahaha I can't believe Maxwell got away with it
dunking it on Bird like that was just EPIC
Bobby Jones baptised Bird!!!
Here's how you save today's NBA: 1). Make this game mandatory viewing for all current NBA players. 2). contracts of all players get re-organized so they get paid per win. 3). Fans start dressing in the plaids of Lowland Scots like that again, with the understanding that some power forward named "Cornbread" may come after you at any time
Is it me or do these guys make today's players look like little boys?
80's ball nuff said!
Darryl Dawkins was the master of the slam dunk. That man scared people when he dunked.
11:20 what a play by the Doctor! Wow!
