Los Angeles Sports Arena


,

Loved this court, too…the Los Angeles Sports Arena…how about that clock? I don’t know exactly why I got such a charge out of that as a young player, but I did…just looked cool, I guess. It’s Lew Alcindor (Jabbar, later, of course) hooking for two in the 1968 NCAA semi-finals aganist Houston..payback for the Bruins for the earlier loss in January in that big hyped Astrodome game…final in this one UCLA 101..Houston 69…Bruins won the title the next night…. and Jerry West brings it upcourt in the 1963 NBA finals 6th game against the Celtics…Bob Cousy’s last game, and another title for Boston…
