Celtic Pride is back in Boston.
The Boston Celtics routed the LA Lakers in game 6 of the NBA Finals 131–92 to win their 17th title in team history. The game was over in the second quarter when the Celtics cut the heart out of the Lakers and went on a 35–14 run. Paul Pierce (MVP), Kevin Garnett and Ray Allen put on a show that last night that Bird, McHale and Parrish would have been proud of. The Big Three dominated the Lakers in every facet of the game.
The Lakers were so outmatched and hustled in the game that it almost appeared that they were playing not only against the 2008 Celtics but also against Jo Jo White, Bob Cousy, Bill Russell and John Havlicek. One could almost smell Red Auerbach’s cigar smoke wafting into the air of the Boston Garden as the clock hit 0:00 and the Celtics had finally won an NBA Championship, their 17th and the first since 1986.
Two things are for certain after last nights incredible 39 point clinching game win; Celtic pride is back and Kobe Bryant is no Michael Jordan.
