The Over and Back Classic NBA podcast continues looking back at classic NBA playoff Game 7s with a series on every NBA Finals Game 7 in history. For part five, Jason Mann and Rich Kraetsch talk about the Houston Rockets vs. New York Knicks in 1994 and the Boston Celtics vs. Los Angeles Lakers in 1969. Topics discussed include John Starks’ famously awful 2-for-18 game, the rareness of a superstar vs. superstar (Hakeem Olajuwon vs. Patrick Ewing) matchup at the same position in the Finals, how insanely close the 1994 Finals really were by point differential, Bill Russell and Sam Jones’ final game, Jerry West winning Finals MVP in a series his team lost, the Lakers coach refusing to allow Wilt Chamberlain back into the game after an injury, Don Nelson’s lucky shot, and much more. Those subjects and much more are covered in this brand-new episode of the Over and Back Classic NBA Podcast.
