Though of course Jabbar really should have been the MVP of the series. :)

I was working the night shift at the Burn Center in San Antonio Texas. I told the RN, to not bother me for two hours, and I watched in a break room. Catch up with my work after it was over. Kind of a unbelievable moment in sports. I was 32 at the time. I remember game 5 better. It was more dramatic & took the air out of Philly. --- Yohe

Kareem was better, but this performance deserved MVP.

And Magic was the best player for the next 4 titles and only got 2 of the MVPs, so it evened out.

Magic is becoming underrated as Kareemís numbers and college GOATness look greater as time passes.
