Adam Morrison now has one less ring than Larry Bird. Morrison is just one ring away from being the Great White Hype and the Basketball Savior. How does that taste, Boston?
The Lakers win was a great win for America. Although, one of my friends on Facebook -- who is a Celtics fan -- tried to lay claim to the U.S. soccer team. Sorry, doesn't Al Queda have a soccer team you can root for? Because rooting for the Celtics is the same as rooting for terrorism. America is behind the Lakers. Nobody, outside of about million people in Boston even care about the Celtics.
And can I ask this? Can we trade Massachusetts for Mexico?
Phil Jackson drew some heat a few days ago when he said that the Celtics like to fold in the second half. The Celtics did not complain. Because they knew he was right.
Even Shaq had to come out and say that Kobe is the man, now. Although, I would not put him in the class of Magic Johnson -- the greatest player of all-time. Maybe I am romanticizing the past, but I cannot remember Magic having a game like Kobe did in Game 7 of the NBA Finals.
And speaking on that, in my lifetime, the Lakers have own the Celtics. Just like Magic owned Bird. Morrison is on the verge of owning Bird. Kobe owning nearly more rings than the entire Celtics team combined, let's put to rest the notion that the Celtics are the premiere franchise.
Even Bill Russell realizes this. As you may have noticed, he was all over the Lakes podium. Sure he was giving out the MVP award, but still, do you think Magic would have looked that happy to be there? But you cannot blame Russell for wanting to associate with a winner.
And on the note of winners, how come the Buss kid was not allowed to talk this year?
One other note, Rasheed Wallace tried to go into the official's dressing room. Seriously Boston, do you try to be this douche-like?
The last note I have, we live in a wonderful neighborhood. The kids were walking around chanting "Boston sucks" after the game. I love those kids.
Honestly, this is a great day to be an American. God bless.
