FILE - In this June 6, 1984, file photo, Los Angeles Lakers' Kareem Abdul-Jabbar and Boston Celtics Larry Bird face off during an NBA playoff game in Los Angeles. By the time the Los Angeles Lakers met the Boston Celtics for the third time in the NBA Finals in the 1980s, defensive stopper Michael Cooper had enough with Larry Bird, Kevin McHale and the rest of the Celtics. It’s the rivalry against which all others are measured, the one essentially responsible for the modern NBA evolving from a fringe sport that put its championship series on tape delay to a global sensation built around the most recognizable athletes in American sports.

FILE - In this Feb. 27, 2017, file photo, Golden State Warriors' JaVale McGee plays during the first half of an NBA basketball game against the Philadelphia 76ers in Philadelphia. McGee will never call himself a journeyman in describing his rugged professional path. Yet McGee must not look far to find an example of someone else who has learned to thrive as a well-traveled NBA role player: just a quick glance a couple of lockers down to where Shaun Livingston dresses each night at Oracle Arena.

And now, as Durant leads the league's most potent team into the NBA Finals while Oden is long gone from the NBA spotlight, it's easy to forget that a lot of people agreed with Nelson.(AP Photo/Ben Margot, File)
