Lakers or Celtics? 1988 Q & A in Boston

In 1988, I worked on Temple Place in Downtown Boston. In May of that year, I asked the locals during a lunch break: Lakers or Celtics?

The poll was conducted during the Eastern Conference Finals, and everyone assumed Larry, Kevin and the Chief would prevail. But the Pistons finally vanquished the C's in the '88 post-season, with a squad that featured Dennis Rodman, Isaiah Thomas, Joe Dumars and John Salley.

Shot on High-8 video, its one of Pedro's first ever sports shorts, and shows a nice slice of workaday Boston two decades ago.
