Default Pau Gasol Googles 'Lakers + Celtics + Rivalry'

Claiming he was unaware of the existence of a Los Angeles Lakers-Boston Celtics rivalry until numerous media outlets suggested their 2008 Finals matchup would revive it, curious Lakers center Pau Gasol researched the topic Wednesday by entering "Lakers + Celtics + Rivalry" into the Internet search engine Google.

The All-Star center expressed surprise upon finding that search results yielded nearly 75,000 websites about the topic, including a Wikipedia entry devoted solely to the Celtics-Lakers matchup.

"I guess these teams go way back," Gasol told reporters, adding that he was also intrigued to learn that the Lakers themselves have a history that precedes their 1996 signing of Shaquille O'Neal. "Apparently, before I was born, the Lakers and Celtics used to play each other all the time, and the games were intense. It seems to have been a really big deal."

Gasol obviously doesn't know anything about the NBA.

I thought my day would be terrible after hearing some bad news in the Grizzlies forum, but I've seen plenty of fun stuff in the main forum today. Thanks Jeff, you made my day, that bit more tolerable.

My favorite basketball one was where Rasheed Wallace had a dream about using his headband to score a million billion points.

And this is the greatest analysis infographic evar.

Nah, the best one was a recent one about the Bulls winning the lottery and then trading the number one pick for more lottery tickets.
