Of all the legendary basketball rivalries over the years, one of the greatest - and, for some reason, least remembered - was the Celtics vs. the 76ers of the early 1980s. From 1980 to 1985, Larry Bird's Celtics faced off against Julius Erving's Sixers four times in the NBA's Eastern Conference finals. This amazing, classic image comes straight from one of those electric playoff nights at the old Boston Garden. There was 1980, when Dr. J schooled the rookie Bird and defeated the Celtics. Then, 1981, when Bird got his revenge in a seven-game classic. And there was 1982, when the Doctor's 76ers walked into the hostile Garden for Game 7, and turned in a perfect clutch performance to march on to the NBA Finals against the Lakers. This classic image, which happens to be from the 1981 series, captures the essence of Erving at the height of his greatness during the rivalry years: the athletic, muscular frame stretched to the limit; the gracefulness of the form; and the saddened Garden fans, who quite often were sent home in heartbreak by the man who revolutionized the game.

More than just a poster, this is a professional-quality 20" x 24" photographic enlargement from the original source, bringing the moment alive with the sharp colors and crispness of a professional gallery-quality reproduction. Officially licensed by the NBA and Erving himself, complete with Hardwood Classics logo and NBA Properties hologram for authenticity! Perfect for the wall of any fan, and a must for your collection.
