James Worthy shares NBA All-Star memories

After a while they all strung together.

Former Lakers forward James Worthy appeared in seven consecutive All-Star games from 1986 to 1992, and over time they served as nothing more than a relaxing weekend and an opportunity to hang out with the league's elite. Unsurprisingly, however, there are two games that remain fresh in his mind.

1986 NBA All-Star game

Worthy instantly gelled with the Lakers after they drafted him in 1982 from North Carolina as the No. 1 pick. His 13.4 points per game and 57.9% mark from the field earned him a spot on the 1983 All-Rookie team. He moved into the starting lineup the next season and developed a hefty reputation as one of the league's best baseline post players.

Worthy acknowledged that his first All-Star appearance as a starter in 1986 was "pretty cool" because he saw it as a validation of his career, after distinguishing himself in the shadows of Magic Johnson and Kareem Abdul-Jabbar during the Showtime Era and helping the Lakers win the 1985 title against the Boston Celtics in six games. Worthy scored 20 points on 10-of-19 shooting in 28 minutes in the West's 139-132 loss to the East. His point total was second only to Abdul-Jabbar for the West (21 points on nine-of-15 shooting and seven rebounds).

"I was a young kid on the block," Worthy said. "I was pretty excited. The first time there, you're a nervous wreck because you're around all the legends and all the other All-Stars. You take it a little too seriously. I treated it like a playoff game and was really involved."

1992 NBA All-Star game

This game, his last All-Star appearance, stood out to Worthy but for different reasons. Just before the season began, Johnson had announced his retirement because he had HIV, but he returned to the All-Star game because fans voted him in as a starter. Ranging from Johnson embracing Isiah Thomas at center court, having one-on-one showdowns with Thomas and Michael Jordan and finishing with the All-Star MVP award, Johnson's 25-point effort in the West's 153-113 victory over stirred up several emotions for Worthy.

"It was good for everybody," said Worthy, who scored nine points on four-of-seven shooting in 14 minutes off the bench. "We had been educated about everything he had gone through. Everybody was very wise about HIV/AIDS. It was a warm welcome. And Magic, he did his thing."

IT'S TIME!! SONNY BELFAST HONORARY LAKERHOLIC - BANDWAGON
@Sonny

I use to live in Sacramento during their "glory days". I had a friend who was just really getting into basketball and was becoming a Kings fan. I told him one day that if he wants to continue to love basketball for the rest of his life he should be a Laker Fan. He asked: "why is that"? I said: "Because you can enjoy this run by the Kings, but when it's over.....It is over until God knows when. The Lakers, well they are forever".

That is why my passion runs deep for the NBA, because as a Laker Fan it is the NBA4ever. Love and support your Kings just like Jon K's support of the Clippers, but just remember why you are here on our blog; it's because when your a Laker Fan EVERYDAY of the year is interesting.

Thanks LRob on the Connie Bird's article. Very informative

SonnyB, while you are in sound asleep and on the way to Burma, the blog is working for your adoption as a Laker fan. Btw, where is our LF from Sactown? He could be the principal sponsor for baptismal rites of Sonny Belfast.

For everyone's information, SonnyB used to live in South LA, in fact he grew up here. However, the fascination with the Kings started in the late 90's to this date when Kings were competing at the Western playoffs. Unfortunately, he doesn't belonged to a cowbell 'hood. He found solace by describing us all as "brokeback" back in the old days when he joined this blog. Whether he liked the cowbells team, he won't enjoy blogging with Kings fan discussing the daily farm life of how to milk cows and raised chickens, I think that why he enjoys going back to his roots in LA.

THE SWAGGER, THE SWAGGER!!!!

My favorite thing about the all-star games in the 80's was the excitement that Magic & Isiah brought. They used their creativity to put on a show while still competing at a high level.

Magic would really try to spoon feed the star who city they were playing in...so that person would shine. I know he helped Tom Chambers get the MVP when the game was in Seattle. Kobe tried to do the same with TMac one year in Houston.

Yep, those were some awesome times. And although they acted like the games were not that important at the end of the games they were ready to kill each other for the victory!!!

LMAO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

@Edwin - no prob.


@frmkt - It's always a good to hear from Mr. Ruffin. Plus looking at that video its amazing how effortlessly Russell Thompkins Jr hit those high.

NBA4ever,

Good story on DWill's regrets regarding coach Sloan.

LRob,

Thanks for the link. It does clear some things up, but of course there is more to it that we will never know. The way the writer sets the story up I thought it was going to go much deeper than that. I wish the writer would of included the link of what the Mailman had to say also. Like I said before, I still think he is one of the best in the game period and would love him on our team.

History repeats to the same patterns, but evolving from them to a more perfected reality, round after
round. So we are the same: just better than last time. And we are getting better with every step more
we take within the future. It's a great life to be a Lakers Fan. Sorry others: you just can't compete. Still
wearing my Purple & Gold Pride.Not because I will think of what others are doing, which I don't
care for, but only because I am well aware and assured of what WE ARE CAPABLE OF.

Phil knows he's got a Ferrari this year. He's just got it purring along. Trying a few things in 2nd & 3rd
gear. Knows he's got several more gears, but sees no need to even try them now. Hasn't even floored
it yet when the NBA cops aren't looking, but knows he can lay a patch of smoke & rubber a block
long if he ever needs it. But yeah, Sonny Belfast, Phil knows (and YOU know) he may not even need
to floor it this year at all. But just for the heck of it, I think he will. @CORNERJ
*_____________________________________________________________________*
In my mind's eye, the Lakers and Celtics are rushing towards each other in the fashion that they have
in years past. Matching each other, blow-for-blow, against all-comers until the time to meet arrives.
They are looking squarely in the others direction while they simultaneously brush aside any with the
misguided notion that they are contenders. It is the same as how Bruce Lee will casually vanquish all
OF the Big Boss' henchmen on his way to the real dance. It is about Boston. It has always been about
Boston. Boston is the only franchise that has earned our RESPECT...and our DERISION. @ FEARLESS

NBA4ever,

Here's a surprise....Malone defended Sloan and was critical of DWill...lol. From what I gather a part of their disagreement was on film study. DWill felt the team should watch more film and coach disagreed. Anyway it takes two to tangle. Deron says he has some regrets and although coach is pretty stubburn...I'm sure after time passes he'll probably say something similar. Yep DWill would look good in P&G.

Here's some of what Malone said...

Interesting article LRob thanks! But while Sloan is my "Homie" DWill is my "Homie" also and so untill I hear what Coach Sloan has to say... I'm sticking with my boy DWill. As for the Mailman, I never did like his @zz even when he was a Laker. Great player but I just didn't like him.

Sorry about the double tap...guess I felt like my old covert days...

@Lew - Wassup! I like that roll call idea.


@Mamba - yeah never was a big Mailman fan either and two things he did really cemented things......1) Saying he didn't want to play with Magic right after it was announced he had AIDS...2) Giving Isiah 44 stiches cause Zeke was lighting up Stockton for being selected over him on the Dream Team.

yeah i see me name up there :) it's alot of Richard Holmes tho, but i just wanted to come say hi and share some thoughts. I think it's current Shaq and his joke or ambition to take Kenny's seat my thoughts on it that's not a problem to recieve commentary from Shaq or Kenny is so. But to go after Kenny and not Chuck, i don't know Shaq that says alot about you. Were you thinking Chuck would have said contreversy and not laughed it off like Kenny and said nothing. I wish Shaq didn't do that cause it cost 125 words to address it. Moving on, i like that dunk yeah i liked that one. but uh i a dont want to talk right now im just chillin
