We Reminisce: Magic Johnson plays center, drops 42-15-7 in NBA Finals

By 05.27.10

You know the backstory: Game 6 of the 1980 NBA Finals, Lakers superstar Kareem Abdul-Jabbar is out with an ankle injury, rookie point guard Magic Johnson starts at center in Kareem’s place, Magic proceeds to put up 42 points, 15 boards, 7 dimes and 3 steals, Lakers win the ‘chip. Can you see anybody in today’s NBA duplicating this feat, especially as a rookie?
