I'm taking the word of most Celtics fans here when I say congratulations guys. There isn't another team I would've wanted to play against in the finals, and i'm pretty sure its safe to assume you guys feel the same way. We couldn't have asked for a closer, harder fought game 7 then this...and you guys pulled it out in the clutch. It truly pains me to say this, but you guys hit the clutch shots to win the game and take home the title. We brought in Rasheed Wallace to beat you guys, and you guys brought in Ron Artest to beat us. Rasheed played a hell of a game, but I have to give a lot of credit to Artest for basically giving the finger to anyone who doubted him this series and showing up to play.
The fact that you guys pulled this off with Kobe shooting so poorly tonight shows a lot about your team's courage and persistence to win games when they need to. I was never a big Pau Gasol fan, but he showed he has got what it takes to play against the big boys in this league. His HUGE double-double performance tonight was key.
I was confident my boys had this game locked up. 12 point lead in the second half, the Celtics finally managed to contain the Lakers potent offense...everything seemed to line up perfect. However, your key players showed up...your bench outplayed us...and the NBA champion Lakers came out on top.
This was a soid game tonight. The refs let both teams play. No one seemed to be favored at any point tonight. Both teams played physical, and there wasnt 1,000 free throws like the first two games. Congratulations Los Angeles...this is a well deserved trophy...and I hope you guys hope to see us in the finals next year as bad as we want a rematch with you. Congratulations.
