When Boston wins the series does Kevin McHale get a ring and a full playoff share for gift-wrapping Garnett for them?

He's as entitled to a ring as much as Chris Wallace would be if the Lakers win the series for gift-wrapping Pau Gasol for them.

Al Jefferson averaged 21/11 last season while shooting 50%. Not bad for a 23 year old.

Congrats, pieman, redsoxnation et al. I didn't appreciate "104-59" (even though it helped get rid of our last GM) but I'm happy as hell for KG, Doc and Jesus Shuttlesworth.

But, PJ Brown can suck it.

Defense wins championships.

Holy freaking crap! The Lakers played some of the most uninspired basketball I have ever seen. Kobe just faded completely as the game wore on. Congrats to the Celtics.

The single-most pathetic display I've seen from any Los Angeles sports team. And that includes the last 20 years of Dodger baseball. THIS Lakers team is the favorite to win the championship for the next several years? Seriously?

Congratulations, Boston. I await Kobe's trade demand any day now.

Damn. Even though I had the Celts to win, I feel bad for guys like DJ FrostyFreeze,who roots for this team only for them to totally tank it when it counts. Shaq may be a bitch to deal with at times, but unlike Kobe he gets it done in the finals, even when behind in the series. Nice way to step it up, Kobe: 7 for 22 in a must win game when you yap about being able to land 40 against Boston anytime you want. Yeah, that will really shut up your critics.

Damn straight, Kawshen! The intensity level at which the Celtics played (especially in the second quarter) was astonishing to watch. I think Rajon Rondo was a little pissed off how much he sat on the bench in Game 5, eh? And Paul Pierce can be the leader of my favorite basketball team every time.

Despite only four hours of sleep before I had to come in to work, I feel awesome!

And nice banner at the top, Chris. I bet they could smell Red's cigar smoke at the Garden last night.

When Kobe came out hitting everything in sight, I thought it was going to be a long night. Lakers just quit after the Posey/House 11 point run in the second quarter that opened it from 3 to 14. At that point, Kobe seemed more interested in trying to throw fastballs at his teammates heads in order to bean them than to try to mount a comeback. Nice to see though that Lamar Odom starts playing aggressively after his team drops down by 35. Big Chief Triangle Phil Jackson might want to break away from whistling practice at some point and tell someone on his team to get on the same side of the court as Ray Allen. Did the Lakers confuse him with Tony Allen?
I'll admit, I never thought I'd see the Celtics win another title in my lifetime. On the 22nd anniversary of the day they drafted Len Bias and the dynasty crumbled, the dynasty gets rebuilt.

Just for the record, this was my attempt at a Simmons-esque "reverse jinx" before the start of the series.

The better team doesn't always win the title, but I just couldn't fathom how so many people (not just Lakers fans) were acting like LA had the superior ballclub in these Finals ... It was just mind-boggling how many people had the Lakers in five-six games (I even saw a few sweeps peppered in amongst the predictions).

Anyway, I don't even know what I'm saying right now (I'm working on a couple hours sleep), so please forgive my ramblings ...

(Yes! I hoping someone would take the bait!)

Nope, but Boston appears to have vandalized their own town....AGAIN! Can't you people act like you've been here in the last 20 years?

Thanks, CRZ!

Yes what an endearing group of people Boston sports fans are.

The fact that these douchebag idiot bandwagoners were rewarded yet again is an injustice.

Would the result really have been any different if the series had gone the other way?

But agreed on the "douchebag idiot bandwagoners". And with the Red Sox favored to win it all (again) and the Patriots looking to avenge their Super Bowl collapse, it could very well be ALL BOSTON, ALL THE TIME for the next couple of years.

Of course, that could be my west coast bias talking.

It goes without saying that this is a sports year to die for, but doesn't the fact that the Red Sox and Celtics each won make the Patriots' Super Bowl loss, in a way, even more frustrating? They blew not only their perfect season, but the citywide Perfect Year. L, O, L.

(Granted, some of that pressure has to fall on Zdeno Chara's head as well.)
