Congrats to the Lakers. I can't say I've really been a big fan of theirs since Magic retired, but they played a really enjoyable form of ball this past season, especially in the playoffs. Kobe will always be Kobe, but the addition of Pau Gasol really makes them so tough to beat because of their new found balance. When support players step up like tonight the Lakers are the best team in the NBA in my opinion. I've decided that I would like to see the Celtics make it out of the East in spite of the good press that Dr. Evil...err...David Stern might get from it.
