This Just In: Lakers Win NBA Championship

The Los Angeles Lakers have defeated the Boston Celtics 83-79. Celtics led most of this game, with the Lakers coming back in the fourth quarter to take the lead, then hold on through a Celtic rally in the last few minutes. The Celtics really did miss big man Kendrick Perkins--Kevin Garnett and Rasheed Wallace took most of his time, and did begin to suffer with fatigue and foul problems. The Lakers presented a real team effort, especially in that critical fourth quarter.

This may be the end for the Celtics in this configuration as they are definitely getting old together. It will be interesting to see who stays and who goes for the Big Green.

So, now, a rest, and then we will keep an eye on the NBA draft and its "Silly Season".
