30 Years Ago Today the Dr. Flew

It seems hard to believe, but 30 years ago today, on May 11, 1980 Dr. J performed one of the sickest moves in NBA history in game 4 of NBA finals against the LA Lakers. The Sixers lost, but the move is as iconic as anything that's ever happened in the NBA. As a little kid I had a Dr. J VHS highlight tape and watched this about a million times. Seems appropriate to watch it a few more.

Even crazier than the move - the NBA finals were being played in early May instead of mid June like it is now.
