When the Celtics and Lakers met in the 1984, 1985 and 1987 NBA Finals, it seemed each year as if every player on the floor was wearing Converse. The two biggest stars in the rivalry were Larry Bird and Magic Johnson – #33 country boy against #32 city slicker, Larry’s iconic black Converse against Magic’s white and purple PEs.
