Ok...so i know this is kinda early. Its still only conference finals and its still only 2-0 in both series. But i for the past few days all i've been thinking about is a Lakers Celtics Finals. And i can't help but get flashbacks of 2008 and how utterly terrible i felt after we lost to the Celtics in the finals. In fact, in Shaqfor3's fanpost of best and worst laker moments, i put down the 2008 finals as my worst moment. I keep telling myelf that this isnt the same team, we have artest guarding perice instead of radmonovich...and we have have bynum (75%). But i just can focus on anything else except for Lakers Celtics. Not my school, not my job, NOTHING!!! All i know is that i wont be able handle another heartbreaking finals defeat to the celtics. I have looked at things in a lot of ways. The fact that we beat them in boston by 1. and the fact that beat us in LA by 1, but that we didn't have Kobe playing that game. I also realize that we are playing great right now (knock on wood), but weren't we also playing great in 2008 before the finals thumping. Let me just make it clear, i am absolutely not afraid of the celtics beating us, i'm afraid of the lakers beating themselves. So far, the toughest team we have faced is the thunder. The Celtics are definitely not going to be as easy as these past 2 series. We were tested last year by the rockets and the nuggets. In 2008, i'm gonna say we werent tested at all until the finals (where being tested is not a good thing). and we were facing a Celtics team that was VERY motivated to get Garnett, Allen, and Pierce a ring. I don't know, i guess im just kinda venting. And maybe you guys can post more stats about how we are better than the celtics. Rondo>Fisher, Kobe>Allen, Pierce>Artest, Gasol>Garnett (right now), Perkins=75% Bynum.
PLEASE LAKERS...JUST GET 6 MORE WINS!!!
