The annual tradition continues as Jason and Rich welcome guests Curtis Harris (ProHoopsHistory.com & Sixers History) and Reinis Lācis (The Handle Podcast) as they live-commentate one of the greatest games of all time: the 1981 Eastern Conference Finals Game 7 between Philadelphia and Boston. Join us as we make fun of Steve Mix, fawn over Bobby Jones, discuss Robert Parish’s mustache, Larry Bird’s smooth jumper, Andrew Toney not getting any playing time, the lack of three-pointers, some mysterious calls that went Boston’s way, Cedric Maxwell pushing a fan the game prior, the fate of both teams after this game and so much more.
Curtis brings some unique perspective as the current voice of Philadelphia 76ers history while Reinis is an expert on all-times tall, bad and white.
