Date: 6/6/1984
Teams: Boston Celtics vs. Los Angeles Lakers
Round: Game 4, NBA Finals
Winner: Kevin McHale
This is the most famous takedown in NBA history. Kevin McHale straight clotheslined Kurt Rambis which led to the clearing of benches. This was a mere personal foul in the '80s but surely would've gotten someone tossed in today's NBA. No one was suspended or fined. That's vintage basketball, folks. Boston won the game and the series in seven.
