So here we go, the end of another NBA season is quickly approaching. That means that it is time to anoint another champion, and in this case the winner seems to really take it all. Boston vs. LA, Lakers vs. Celtics, Kobe and Friends vs. Rondo & The Big Three, Doc vs. Phil. Can it get any better? Even if you dislike or don’t care for either of the teams, this has to be the next best thing outside of your team making it. I swear if you close your eyes you will think Magic and Larry are about to hit the center stage for one more go round.
About a month ago I would have never penciled these two teams in. The Celtics seemed to limp into the post season and Kobe looked to be on his last leg. But as champions do, both teams rose to the occasion as if they knew history needed them. Those Celtics with the pesky Rondo kid were determined to get one more, as a matter of fact KG said it at the end of last season that they would be back. Now look at them!! And we all know Kobe is on a mission to be The One! Not number #2 or #3 on your list, he wants to be #1, #2, and #3 on anyone’s list. Actually he probably is aiming for #-5!! Ice Cold.
I am not sure who will win, but I am sure it will be entertainment for an otherwise lackluster playoff season.
Los Angeles Lakers in 6. I just don’t see Kobe giving up this opportunity on getting another ring. I am sure he wants to be known as the best Laker ever. And the one person who stands in his way, Magic has 5 rings. Kobe needs at least one more before he can sit at the table. Kobe wants that ring, the mamba needs that ring. Kobe Lakers in 6!
