What were/are the 5 Most anticipated NBA Finals of All Time?


Here is my list based on the stars of the series and the appeal in the league at the time.

1991 Bulls vs Lakers (MJ vs Magic - Top 2 players in the league)

1984 Celtics vs Lakers (Bird vs Magic meet for the first time)

1969 Lakers vs Celtics (Russell vs Wilt and LA finally the favorite)

1998 Jazz vs Bulls (MJ vs Malone, #1 and #2 in league and MVP voting in the rematch)

2010 Lakers vs Celtics (two storied franchises for the rematch)

Ok, so this list is for the most anticipated after the series was set? Or like the first response above where we're talking about even before the playoffs/Finals had started? I think the former is what JB means, but anyway I don't have a problem with the list at all. That is pretty good.
