BOSTON CELTICS DEFEAT LOS ANGELES LAKERS 131-92 TO WIN NBA CHAMPIONSHIP TITLE

From the start I was hoping that the Celtics would not end up facing the Lakers simply for the fact that the fruition of the so-called rivalry confrontation would end up making the ABC bean-counter consumer capitalists happy. They were hoping for it since the play-offs began and I hate it when those jerks set aside everything about the love of the game when they simply start anticipating and drooling over what promotionals they can have in a few weeks or a month.

So of course they were talking about this back when the Pistons were facing the Celtics in the 2008 Eastern Conference Finals, as if the Pistons did not exist. I cannot recall who the Lakers were playing at the time in the Western Conference Finals but I guess they did not exist. So I have two reasons for being disappointed and annoyed that the Detroit Pistons lost to the Boston Celtics.

I never really cared for the Los Angeles Lakers or their flagship player Kobe Bryant.

I cannot even recall how many games it took the Celtics to beat the Lakers.
