Odd, as I've kinda fallen out of favor for the NBA (NFL is the greatest sport in history... footie is a close second). Lakers have been my fave team since Lew Alcindor and me mum were chums in the mid 70s (leave it to your imagination). Annnnnnnnnnnyways. I hate/despise store bought teams, much less teams from Boston,... so granted the "rivalry" is on paper, but this fan wants nothing more than to see Kobe get another ring (without Shaq) at the expense of Ray Allen and KG. Can't believe Lakers are up by 5 at the half... on the road (in Boston), with an off night for Kobe... look out if he comes in the second half en fuego. Series could be over tonight. Seriously. Celts need to win Game 1.
