It's THEIR time to shine

I hate them right now.

But I have to thank them though.

It was a helluva series.

Yes, my Boston Celtics succumbed to the LA Lakers to miss their chance to win an eighteenth crown. Blame Ron Artest, Pau Gasol, Derek Fisher, and Lamar Odom for this.

I will not call them Baklakers after making such feat.

Kobe Bryant was heavily pestered throughout the game but he did manage to come up with 23 points and 15 rebounds despite making only 25 percent of his shots. Aside from Kevin Garnett and Glen Davis, no Celtic scored 50 percent and over in their FG percentage.

Funny how the Celtics won FG percentage, FT percentage, and 3-point field goal percentage but had 13 rebounds less which gave the Lakers 12 more shots! The Lakers edged the Celtics in offensive rebounds 23 to 8.

I made a bet with my online writing pal Chrisangelo where whoever loses will write 15 articles on how he adores the opposing team. As of this moment he has been putting a lot of Laker-love crap on Facebook. Obviously he loves the win so much.

I don’t.

I hope he forgets what we waged a couple of weeks back because I am not ready to write anything about the Lake Show.

But still you have to wonder if this was Cleveland or Orlando or Atlanta facing the Lakers. Sure, LeBron James and Shaquille O’Neal will be thrust to the spotlight but their rivalry with Boston brought out nostalgia. The old NBA fans of the Bird and Magic era fused with the fans of the Kobe and Paul Pierce era to relive that storied rivalry anew.

An icebreaker? Perhaps next season?

That should be interesting.

Game over.

Mali ang gamit mo ng "there". Dapat "It's THEIR time to shine." They're HOMOnyms, not synonyms. Sports copywriter ka pa naman! :P
