It seems I cannot get a concise answer to this question:
Bird and Johnson were the best players in college basketball in 1979 and played against each other in the NC.
The thought occurred to me as to HOW the two top players in college were able to be drafted by the top 2 franchises of all time, the Celtics and the Lakers. At the time both clubs were nearly at the top of their respective leagues. How were they able to pick the best players in a draft?
Only someone from Mgoblog will know.............
