Legendary Game 7s: In 1988, Worthy was worthy

Jun 17, 2010, 2:46 PM EDT

In the 1998 NBA finals, the Lakers were down 3-2 coming home and needing to take two to get the title. That sounds oddly familiar….

In Game 7, “Big Game” James Worthy lived up to his nickname with a triple double, and the Lakers got their back-to-back rings Pat Riley had promised everyone.

    Funny clip to choose – there are others all about Worthy’s amazing game.
    Also, it was the 1988 Finals, not the 1998.
    But yes, a great moment in Laker lore – the repeat. I was 10, and it was glorious.
