NBA LEAGUE 1975:The Time Machine
And in other news, the sun came up today . I remember 1977 my 2 favorite teams were Seattle and the 76ers with Dr. J. The Blazers beat them both and what was worse Doc and the 76ers had a 2-0 lead in the finals. Unfortunately Bill would spend most of his carreer injured altho he was a great part of a championship Celtics 86 team. I used to work at sea tac airport and i saw him a few years ago getting off a plane, the man can hardly walk , its painful to watch but he stopped and was nice to everyone, he wanted to talk music more than basketball as he was there for the late paul allen who was throwing a private concert with jimmy page of led zepp playing. must be nice to have that kind of money!
