The Boston Celtics are Champions Again!
This is one for the record books, number #17 to be precise. In Game 4, The Cs pulled off the greatest comeback in NBA finals history coming from 24 down to win the game. In clinching the title tonight in game six of the series, the Green absolutely obliterated the Los Angeles Lakers, holding leads of over twenty five points for large stretches of the second half. Truly, the game was over by the end of the first half as the Celtics total team effort utterly overwhelmed the Laker's soft west coast game. As viewers of this finals series have been reminded ad nauseum, the league's MVP during the regular season was The Laker's Kobe Bryant. Just so, but the Celtic's Paul Pierce, an L.A. native, is the series MVP. Last but not necessarily least, an added benefit to tonight's decimation of the Lakers is that it has denied the obnoxious coach of the Lakers, Phil Jackson, from tying Celtic legend Red Auerbach for most NBA titles as a coach. Not on the Celtics watch, Phil!
