Congratulations to the 2008 World Champion Boston Celtics

June 17, 2008

Now that was impressive! I just watched the Boston Celtics beat the Los Angeles Lakers by a score of 131- 92. When this series started i thought that the Lakers had the better team, but they faded down the stretch like Big Brown in the Belmont. I don’t even have to question about what happened. Boston had the better team and the Celtics wanted it more than the Lakers did. I was truly convinced when LA could not hold on to a 23 point lead in game four of the series. I’m glad that Boston was able to win the championship at home. There is nothing like being able to celebrate a championship at home with your own fans.

I know that every member of the Celtics team and staff deserves the championship, but I really feel good for Kevin Garnett, Paul Pierce, and Doc Rivers, who is another Chicago homeboy. I appreciated the shout out to Chicago from KG after the game as he was being interviewed by Michelle Tafoya.

I remember what this feels like from a fan perspective, because I lived in Chicago all through the Michael Jordan / Chicago Bulls era and I still have fond memories of those days; but today belongs to the Celtics and I tip my cap to them. Congratulations.

I found it interesting…I hope you do too.

The Boston Celtics Deserve The 2008 NBA Finals Championship

June 13, 2008

As you probably know by now, the Boston Celtics pulled off the greatest comeback in an NBA Finals game ever last night. They were down by 21 points after the first quarter and down by 24 in the second half, yet they found a way to come back. I predicted that the Lakers would win the series, but I have been pulling for my Chicago homeboy, Kevin Garnett, one of Boston’s Big-3 to win his first NBA title and ring. My daughter has been pulling for Boston since the start and at the beginning of the game I was giving her all kinds of grief…”Look at Kobe do this, and watch Gasol do that. Wow, did you see that 3-point shot to end the half.” Well you can guess how she was rubbing my face in it when the Celtics took the lead. There was nothing I could say. If you let a team go on a 21-3 run in the Finals, then you deserve to lose, and that’s just what happened. I really liked how Paul Pierce summed it up at the end of the game CLICK HERE.
