This directly affects the Lakers because a good majority of Laker fans see the Celts as mortal enemies lol.
Being a hardcore Laker fan, I really didn't want to see Sam I am going to the big green machine for free and son of a gun it has happened.
In another brilliant move they nabbed PJ too. Man that really came out of nowhere.
I was hoping that lack of depth was going to sink them, but now those two pieces may be enough to push them past Detroit and into the Finals where they would surely have home court advantage against the west.
On the flip side, if the Lakers can manage to get to the finals it should create an epic battle! It could be the 80's all over again....and really that wouldn't be so bad. To go through a loaded west and defeat your arch enemy.....and kobe with 9 digets....that would be a finish made in Hollywood
As much as I hate to admit it, I have to give big props to Ainge and co. for rebuilding that franchise literally overnight.
Ok I'm done venting, I fell better now
