Re-live "Sweet Sixteen" - the amazing Boston Celtics NBA Championship of 1986 - just like you would have watched it back in the day! This spectacular DVD set features the original CBS Sports game broadcasts of the 1986 NBA Finals between the Celtics and the Houston Rockets, when Larry Bird and his amazing posse outplayed the "unbeatable" Twin Towers of Hakeem Olajuwon and Ralph Sampson to win their record 16th championship in the history of the franchise. Called by the classic CBS announcing combo of Dick Stockton and Tommy Heinsohn, with Brent Mussberger as host, this will bring you back to the fabulous 1980s, and allow you to plunge yourself back into this intense long-lost series once again!
In addition to all six game broadcasts, Disc #7 gives you the official film of the 1985-86 NBA season and Playoffs, "Sweet Sixteen", featuring a recap of not only the Finals, but of Celtics victories over Michael Jordan's Chicago Bulls, Dominique Wilkins' Atlanta Hawks, and Sidney Moncrief's Milwaukee Bucks, the Rockets' shocking dismantling of the defending champion L.A. Lakers, and of other great happenings of the season.
Whether you are a lifelong fan of Denis Johnson, Danny Ainge, Kevin McHale, Robert Parish, Bill Walton, and the rest of the 1980s Celtics, or are simply an afficionado of classic NBA action from the glory days of the league, this DVD set is a must for your collection!
Note: It has come to our attention that, in a ridiculous fit of politically-correct intervention, the NBA edited out the famed Ralph Sampson-Jerry Sichting fight from the Game 5 broadcast. Hopefully, a missing fight will not detract from the amazing experience that re-living these games affords; however, for full disclosure, we felt it was important to note this omission.
