Return to Glory: Celtics win NBA title
Still remember my Monday’s blog? I said let’s celebrate the day after tomorrow (June 18th) and Paul Pierce will be the finals MVP.
I really regret I didn’t have a bet with A Gao! (阿高) Haha
This morning, Garnett scored 26 points with 14 rebounds, Allen scored 26 and Pierce, The Finals MVP who shook off a sprained right knee sustained in Game 1, added 17 as the Celtics wrapped up their first title since 1986.
They might be calling it the “Boston Three Party” after the Celtics big victory and rightfully so. Of course Rondo (who scored 21 points today) and James Posey were also integral parts of this championship. It was truly a team effort for the Celtics.
For Lakers, there’s plenty of blame to go around for sure. You can look to Koby disappearing at crucial times. Absolutely no consistent inside presence was another factor. Mr. Paul Gasol, The Lakers were looking for you in the Finals. Now to be fair, Boston’s defense was the cause of a lot of the Lakers’ woes in the series.
Don’t cry Kobe! Beijing welcomes you!
Good-bye, 2008 Finals!
