Live NBA Chat: Lakers-Celtics

The Los Angeles Lakers and the Boston Celtics are the NBA’s most storied rivalry.  After battling repeatedly in the 60s and 80s, the rivalry was renewed once again in the 2000s with the Lakers signing Pau Gasol and the Celtics adding Kevin Garnett and Ray Allen to accompany Paul Pierce. These two teams have accounted for the last three NBA titles and have what it takes to win another in 2011.

In an 82-game season, few regular games hold special significance but when the Celtics and Lakers meet, it’s always a statement game.

So pull up a chair, make yourself a drink and join us today for live sports chat.

  1. Well, after today’s game, the shoes will be obsolete. Unless of course he can get them changed to 153-120. You can tell that the Celtics rule by the number of “Greenies” in the house.

  2. Celtics looked pretty good today, Snake.

    Not to jinx your boys but if I had to put my money on any one team to win it all this season, I’d go with Boston.

    I’d like to read a great deal more into the result but as well know the regular season is the regular season. What happens in the postseason is what counts more than anything else !

    I hear Bird wants to see the Pacers go in a new direction ? Which one is that I might ask ? They’re now beginning to make both the Cavaliers and Kings look good !

    tophatal ……….

  4. I agree, Al, but the Celtics have very few holes and that showed yesterday.

    The Pacers start Collison, Dunleavy, Grainger, Hansbrough and Hibbert. While that might sound like a who’s who of college all-stars, I’m not sure that’s a dominant lineup in the pros.

    In a stout East (Bulls, Knicks, Celtics, Heat, Magic, Hawks), the best any other team can expect is 7th or 8th. I still feel the Pacers are a step or two away, and definitely some toughness, away from that mark.

    Where was Bird when all these other Eastern teams were making moves?
