thanks for the props on the 1980 sonics. you are a man who knows hoops!
the lakers were a tad better than we were that year in the west conference finals as kareem and magic were simply outstanding
most people write off the 80 sonics because the lakers got so much play in the media
btw, the 80s spurs with gervin and company were so fun to watch and i feared playing them
Thanks. I just looked at the teams who went farthest into the playoffs and seperated them by records. No other Western Team went to finals besides Houston and L.A. and Seattle had the best record of the teams who went to the WCF. So they got 3rd seed
Its gonna be a good series between them and the Spurs
