Description

A look back at the NBA's greatest decade, the Eighties, through the words and eyes of Photojournalist Steven A. Roseboro, who covered the Era up close and personal. Featuring over 500 photographs, this 2-Volume set relives the fierce rivalry between the decade's greatest teams, the Los Angeles Lakers led by Earvin "Magic" Johnson vs. the Boston Celtics of Larry Bird. The Eighties featured the magnificence of NBA Champions and Hall of Famers Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Julius Erving, Moses Malone and Isiah Thomas, as well as the mercurial rise of one Michael Jordan. Akeem Olajuwon, Patrick Ewing, Dominique Wilkins, Clyde Drexler, Charles Barkley, Karl Malone and John Stockton were among the galaxy of stars that would catapult the NBA into the Global sports power it has become. The competition was unparalleled, the excitement still palpable.
