    How this is not number one amazes me.

    2. Magic Johnson – Los Angeles Lakers vs. Philadelphia 76ers, 1980: Just a rookie and starting at center for Game 6, Ervin “Magic” Johnson would begin his legendary NBA career in unprecedented form. With the Lakers star player Kareem Abdul-Jabbar out for the series with an injury after dominating the first five games by averaging 33.4 points per game, Magic would fill in for Kareem to clinch the title from Dr. J and the 76ers by starting at center and leading the team with 42 points, 15 rebounds and seven assists. Johnson played all five positions on the floor over the course of Game 6, while scoring nine points in the final minutes to put the series away for LA. Magic would become the first rookie in league history to earn the NBA Finals MVP award, and would later state, “That’s still today probably my greatest game in the NBA.”
