    Story
    (63)

    From the moment these two players took the court on opposing sides, they engaged in a fierce physical and psychological battle. Their uncommonly competitive relationship came to symbolize the most compelling rivalry in the NBA. These were the basketball epics of the 1980s - Celtics vs Lakers, East vs West, physical vs finesse, Old School vs Showtime, even white vs black. Each pushed the other to greatness - together Bird and Johnson collected eight NBA Championships and six MVP awards.

    What did you love best about When the Game Was Ours?

    I loved the story of Bird growing up and his discipline and hard work were pillars of his life. I also loved the way Magic did not change who he was for anybody. I liked how two foes became the best of friends.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    My favorite character was Larry because of the way he lived his life. His self discipline and his ability to play through pain and injury.


    What about Dick Hill’s performance did you like?

    He has an enticing voice.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    yes


    Any additional comments?

    pay attention to the beginning and to the part about Dr. J
