The Over and Back Classic NBA podcast continues looking back at classic NBA playoff Game 7s with a new series on every NBA Finals Game 7 in history. In Part Two, Jason Mann and Rich Kraetsch discuss the New York Knicks vs. Los Angeles Lakers in 1970, Minneapolis Lakers vs. Syracuse Nationals in 1954 and Rochester Royals vs. New York Knicks in 1951. Topics discussed include the shocking revelation that the “Willis Reed game” was only 15th on our list, Walt Frazier’s fantastic performance in said game, the Lakers and George Mikan’s early NBA dominance, the NBA’s odd Round Robin playoff format, the surprisingly dominant Rochester Royals mini-dynasty, Arnie Risen’s stardom and how the 1951 series was important in growing the NBA’s national significance. Those subjects and much more are covered in this brand-new episode of the Over and Back Classic NBA Podcast.
