Boston Celtics legend still hates LA Lakers

Cedric Maxwell hasn't worn a Boston Celtics uniform in nearly 40 years, but he still despises the rival Los Angeles Lakers. 

Maxwell appeared on former Lakers guard Michael Cooper's podcast "Showtime With Coop" recently, and he didn't hold back. Cooper's Lakers  

despised Maxwell's Celtics, and the feeling was mutual. In fact, Maxwell isn't afraid to admit that he still despises those guys. 

The Celtics and the Lakers were the NBA's most bitter rivals in the 1980s. There was also no greater personal rivalry than Boston's Larry Bird 

versus Los Angeles' Magic Johnson. The two were the league's faces, and they helped elevate the NBA to new heights. 

The Celtics ruled the East. The Lakers dominated the Western Conference. During the decade, they won eight championships,

Maxwell was a member of two of Boston's three championship teams during the decade. When the Celtics defeated the Houston Rockets in the 1981 NBA Finals
