Great post that brought back lots of memories. I think the golden age of the NBA was 85 to 90. Some of those Pistons / Celtics series and Pistons / Lakers series were legendary. I remember Isiah hobbling around on crutches before gametime, but still gutting it out for 24 points in the fourth quarter of a conference final game.
The golden age of the college game for me was 83 - 93, Watching John Thompson\'s Georgetown teams wreak havoc across the Big East conference was fun. Watching the Larry Johnson / Stacy Augmon UNLV teams was also lots of fun. It still baffles me to this day how Duke managed to beat them in the NCAA championship game.
