Boston Celtics Hammer LA Lakers 131 – 92 … Win 17th NBA Title … Lucky 17


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.

      Congrats Boston Celtics.
      You deserve it, you earned it.

      I really do not get into watching Pro Basketball, however, the Celtics were something special this year. Why I even know that three of the players got their early experience in our local farm system. ( Sometimes known as the Miwaukee Bucks) The only thing our franchise is good at is developing players and then selling them.

      I didn’t follow the playoffs because my team tanked, but I’m glad the Celtics won. It’s been a while and they deserve the win. Sorry, Phil, but you and Kobe aren’t you and Michael.

      I was so glad the Celtics won. Watched the game last night. Never been a lakers fan.., but I do like Phil Jackson from the Bulls days.. Watched them all the time when Jordan played. I remember years ago cheering for the Celtics when Larry Bird, Danny Ainge, Robert Parish, Kevin Mchale and Casey Jones were the team. Congrats Celtics!
