2008: The Best Championship Match Up in NBA History Revisited

2008 NBA Finals

Game 1

From Boston

It is great to see the the Best Championship Match Up in NBA history return to the Court for The Finals of 2008. I haven't followed the NBA too closely the last several years, but with the Lakers vs. Celtics on tap... I'll be viewing in on this one.

ABC and the NBA have a match made in heaven. The 11th meeting in The Finals of Boston vs. Los Angeles. The Celtics won the first 8, while the Lakers have taken the last 2.

Bill Russell and Magic Johnson in the audience. Highlights of prior court match ups interlinked between the game. It will be a nice venue for the past to meet the present. The past clearly has many of the best of the best. The current have the NBA's best player, along with the NBA's best defender. Coach Phil Jackson's Lakers vs. Coach Doc Rivers... awesome!

As a life long Lakers fan, I can still find some appreciation for what Boston has been able to accomplish, in this great rivalry, it's great to see the match up return. Now, let's make it three straight Lakers!
