The Twin Towers

Magic Johnson of the Lakers, rated one of the top players in the NBA, shakes his head when he talks about going up against the Twin Towers of Houston, Ralph Sampson, 7-4, and Akeem Olajuwon, who is seven feet.

"Those big guys," Magic said, "you beat one and here comes the other one. And on the offensive rebounds, oh man! You think you've got it and they reach over you and still dunk it."
