The boots feel comfortable in his feet… his true and loyal battle weapon, its blunderbusses of countless conquests and defeats, his inseparable mallets with which he struggled so many times to obtain a little glory at the Olympus of soccer.

The dear girl was named “Razzle Dazzle.” She was very young, having<br />been in service only three months, but rather portly. Matter of fact,<br />she weighed something over thirty tons. And in no way could you call<br />the dear little woman pretty. She was a pallid gray and mud-splashed<br />when I got her and there was no grace in the bulging curves of her<br />steel shape. Or of her conical top. Or her ponderous wheels.<br /><br />The fact is that she showed every aspect of being a bad, scrappy old<br />dearie. The minute I saw her in her lovely ugliness I knew she would<br />like trouble and lots of it. Her metabolism was a marvel. She carried<br />a six-hundred-horse-power motor. And out of her gray steel hoods<br />protruded eight guns. An infernal old girl, you can bet she was. All<br />ready to make battle in large quantities.<br />

Hoyt Dale, Parker High's sturdy left defense man, had been after his<br />team mates all season. They were more in the mood to listen to him now,<br />since they had just gone down to a stinging 5 to 2 defeat at the hands<br />of Brinkman Prep.<br /><br />"This makes three straight losses," snapped Hoyt, "and we're going to<br />drop the big game with Hallstead as sure as shooting, unless...!"<br /><br />"Unless what?" demanded Rudie Antrim, who played the other defense<br />position.<br /><br />"Unless you guys learn how to give as well as take!" Hoyt finished,<br />defiantly. "Every team that plays us roughs us into the boards and<br />stick handles us all over the ice. They get away with murder because<br />Coach has never taught you fellows how to take care of yourselves. Why,<br />where I used to play...!"<br />

It was the time of Bird and Magic. It was the time of Dr. J at the outset and the Bad Boys at the end. It was a time when the Houston Rockets teased and fell and it was a decade-long feast for Showtime. It was the 1980s in the NBA.<br /><br />This blog compilation takes you into the season-long narrative of each year’s championship team. You’ll look at the key players from each team and then watch how their regular season narrative unfolded. Finally, you’ll read about each game in a playoff run that ended with champagne and the Larry O’Brien Trophy. You’ll read about the following…<br /><br />*The arrival of Magic Johnson was the lynchpin for a new era of Los Angeles Lakers basketball. With Kareem Abdul-Jabbar in place as the anchor, the Lakers immediately won a title in 1980. Watch them continue to come back throughout the 1980s, as Pat Riley replaced Paul Westhead on the bench, James Worthy replaced Jamaal Wilkes and Byron Scott took the spot of Norm Nixon. The beat just kept rolling on, with championships in 1982, 1985, 1987 and 19888.<br /><br />*Larry Bird came into the league at the same time as Magic and by Bird’s second season, he was the one with a ring. Bird joined forces with Tiny Archibald and Cornbread Maxwell, who later gave way to Danny Ainge, Dennis Johnson and Kevin McHale. With Larry Legend as the constant, the Celtics added 1984 and 1986 championships to their 1981 banner.<br /><br />*Julius Erving spent a long time knocking on the door. His Philadelphia 76ers were consistently among the league’s best, but following a disappointing Finals loss in 1977, they kept getting stopped—mostly by the Lakers and occasionally by the Celtics. Dr. J needed a big man to help him and he got one of the all-time greats in Moses Malone. The result was a championship in 1983.<br /><br />*By the end of the 1980s, there was a rising power in Detroit. Isiah Thomas was the best player, but more than other elite teams in this decade, the Pistons were about depth. They were also about physicality, earned the nickname “The Bad Boys” and they reveled in it. They challenged the Celtics and just missed in 1987. They reached the Finals in 1988, challenged the Lakers and just missed. In 1989, they brought the championship to the Motor City.<br /><br />The format of this book is that of a compilation of articles. Each one appears individually on TheSportsNotebook.com and has been edited for the compilation. Taken collectively, they tell the story of the 1980s NBA champions. <br />
