Lakers Vs Celtics Means One Thing: Thunder Dan and Tom Chambers

Justin May 31, 2008 5

Everyone is excited about the NBA Finals, and they should be. It’s the most exciting matchup since Michael Jordan pushed off of Bryan Russell. But when I hear Lakers vs Celtics, I can only think of one thing. The GREATEST VIDEO GAME OF ALL TIME.
It was the first sports game I owned that had real teams and real players. Magic and Bird were fun to play with, and Michael Jordan dunked from anywhere, but the best player with the most unstoppable move was Tom Chambers, and his triple pump slam. Here’s the real version, over Mark Jackson. And his Phoenix teammate, Dan Majerle, had his own distinction. He was the only player in the game with skin tone. Everyone else was either black or white, but Thunder Dan was tan. Also, he couldn’t hit free throws.

    The Larry Bird turnaround was amazing. He didn’t even have to look at the hoop.

    I remember when i 1st got genesis and lakers-celtics, the best hannukah ever…it was 6th grade and we had the “earth” club every tuesday after school, with the hot young Miss Hanneman. Although she was hot and young, she was no match for Lakers-Celtics, i quit immediately, while everyone was learning about recycling i was going basline with MJ.
