Magic Johnson started at center (1980 NBA Finals G6)-

Magic Johnson - 42 points, 15 rebounds, 7 assists in series-clinching Game 6(1980 NBA Finals), in place of injured Kareem

In one game, a 20-year-old rookie named Magic Johnson went from precocious to prodigious. With six-time NBA MVP Kareem Abdul-Jabbar out with a severe ankle sprain, Magic started at center and turned in the best performance ever in an NBA Finals game -- 42 points, 15 boards, seven assists -- on the road, no less -- as the Lakers won their first of five NBA titles in the '80s.
