1987

The New York Mets returned to baseball in 1987 as the reigning World Champions. But, they did not come close to acheiving what they had in the previous year. The Mets would end their season 92-70 falling to the St. Louis Cardinals.

This Date in History: Lakers Over Celtics

Twenty three years ago, on this date the Lakers would win the NBA Finals over the Boston Celtics in six games defeating them 4-2. This would be the tenth time that the Celtics and Lakers would meet in the NBA finals. The Lakers were awarded home court advantage for finishing the season with a 65-17 record. With multiple lead changes in the final seconds and Magic Johnson's sky hook, Game 4 shaped up as one of the most exciting games in NBA Finals history. The Celtics would not make another appearance in the NBA Finals until 2008, meeting again with the Lakers. Below is the top ten greatest moments from the 1987 NBA Finals.

 

The 2010 NBA Finals marks the twelfth time that these two teams will meet to compete to be the champions. Out of the last eleven times that these two teams have battled it out for the title the Celtics have emerged victorious nine times. The Lakers would only win in the 1984-85 and 1986-87 seasons.

Who do you think will take the title this year?
