Lakers Bounce back in 1988:
But all of a sudden in the year 1988 all of the rancor and fire the Lakers had were proving to be working well for the Lakers.Initially they were 2-3 down to the Detroit Pistons but in Game Six,they came back from a three point deficit with Just a Minute to go for the final Judgement Bell.With Two Free throws “The Spire Man of Basketball”–Kareem Abdul jabbar took them ahead and won 103-102 with 14 seconds left in the Game(It would have been a real nailbiter I tell you).And in Game seven,James Worthy’s superb performance(36 Points) brought Victory for Lakers 108-105.Kareem Abdul Jabbar has also won NBA Most Valuable Player award when he was at the top of his game.
