The mindset required to get back to the Finals

In 1984, the Celtics beat Magic and the Lakers in the NBA Finals in seven games. The following season, LA returned the favor, downing BOS, 4-2.

Said Magic recently:

"One thing that we always did is we always understood that it was a business year. Like when the Celtics beat us in '84, we came back and made it a business year. Anything and everybody in front of us, we were going to destroy and we were going to get back to that Finals. So [this Lakers team has] got to do the same thing."
