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.
