'80s Highlights 

The Ice Man was a great scorer with the prettiest layup in the game. Gervin's name is synonymous with the finger roll. He was a two-time scoring champ during the '80s and he did it effortlessly. George was as graceful as it gets and probably could still drop 30 on a rookie. He made the impossible look possible which hindered his appeal compared to other players in his era because he made it look so damn easy.
