Default Kareem's Greatest Game

IMHO, Kareem's greatest game...

Game five of the '80 Finals...

40 points, 14 of them in the 4th quarter, and on a badly sprained ankle, in a 108-105 win.

Thoughts?

Great game.

14 in 4th.

Please take FMVP away from Magic & give it to Kareem like now.

Kareem the real FMVP of '80s finals.

Hard to pick a single game, because Kareem was consistently great for so long.

Yeah, that might have been Magic's greatest game, as well.

Thanks for the links!

While I definitely feel that given the absolutely dominating performance that he had over the first five games of the '80 Finals that Kareem should have been awarded the MVP, I think that what really sold Magic to the voters was not that he simply had a great game 6 in te absence of Kareem. Magic's game 6 was as good or better (at least statistically) as any game Kareem had during that Finals.
