VIDEO: All-time Greats Face Off In 1984 Legends Game

How awesome would it be if we could watch Michael Jordan, Charles Barkley, Larry Bird, Magic Johnson and Hakkem Olajuwon go at it again? What about all in the same game?

Well that probably won't happen, but in 1984 the stars of yesteryear got together to play one last time for the Legends game during the NBA All-Star weekend. This roster included Pete Maravich, Jerry West, Oscar Robertson, John Havlicek and Rick Barry, to name a few. The NBA stopped the Legends, also known as Old-Timers, game in 1993 due to frequent injuries, and now rookies play instead. 

It may not be the prettiest basketball these men have played, but watching Bob Pettit huffing and puffing up and down the court in 1984 has it's own charm.
