It would be interesting, but it COULD go either way this time around....where as, the first time, I was pretty sure the Celts had it in the bag. But that was 2 years ago.

Tony Allen and Davis >>> Lakers bench.

My only concern about the Lakers is how Gasol-Bynum-Odom will play.
Gasol and Odom had no defense against Boston's big men. Is Bynum really that great on D to make a big difference?

This series would be decided completely on How Artest defends Pierce.

I'd be a giddy school kid all over again, same as 2008. Its the Dream Finals for us Celtics fans...the two best franchises in NBA history. Hell, even if Boston didn't win it I'd be thrilled to watch it again.

The Lakers are probably "the other team" I watch most that aren't the Celtics...just because I feel like I have to know what's coming should we meet in the NBA Finals. Its just natural for me after 21 years of Celtics fanhood. I know what they're capable of and I don't get mad when they beat us because I KNOW that sometimes we will lose to an equal/better team and the Lakers are that team year-in and year-out.

If la and boston plays there are gonna be suspensions Idk why but I have that feeling. The atmosphere and rivalry between these 2 teams is too big. Garnett will emerge from a group faster than ever before

But yeah in LA during that series it was just epic. I want bos.

Celtics in 5 or 6. The Lakers have been taking advantage of midget teams (they're about to go against a thrid one in the Suns). The C's size matches up favorably with LA and LA's weak bench would get exposed. And if Bynum isn't healthy they'd be in deep shiit.

Boston is not playing in this years finals, they get beaten by magic if they reach ECF, anyways and to do that i give them only 50% at max.
