Before Kevin McHale hit Kurt Rambis, the Lakers were just running across the street whenever they wanted. Now they stop at the corner, push the button, wait for the light, and look both ways.
Or put another way:

(In the 1984 NBA Finals, the Lakers ran the Celtics out of the gym in Game 3.Â Larry Bird responded by publicly calling his team “a bunch of wimps” and “sissies.”Â Kevin McHale responded by clotheslining Kurt Rambis in the 2nd quarter of Game 4.Â Boston won the series in 7 games.Â Game 4 is still one of the greatest games in NBA history.Â Bird hit a turnaround J with less than a minute left in OT to seal the win)
I’m pumped.Â –Gooch
