The Los Angeles Lakers and Boston Celtics have perhaps the premier rivalry in the NBA if not of all sports as a whole, and a fair amount of that stems from both teams being in the title hunt for much of the 1980s.

Countless classic moments were had between the two battling franchises in that decade, and perhaps none of them were more so than when former Celtic guard Gerald Henderson stole a particular ball on a particular play in the 1984 NBA Finals. This iconic moment was the topic of a recent discussion had between Henderson himself and fellow Boston legends Cedric Maxwell and M.L. Carr.

We also hear from Laker luminaries Bob McAdoo and Michael Cooper on the game where Henderson stole the ball.

Watch the video embedded above produced by our friends at CLNS to hear the inside scoop on that historic play.
