In many ways, today was a sad day for the NBA. Every Celtic fan wanted to see the Los Angeles Lakers lose, but just not how it happened today. Celtics’ fans wanted the rubber match just as badly as Lakers’ fans did. They wanted to see the Lakers lose in a Finals game 4, 5, 6, or 7. Not getting swept in the second round. Some may take delight in this left coast misery, but I, for one, cannot. It’s just weird to see a coach like Phil Jackson spend his final days as a coach in the league getting swept out of the playoffs. His team dealing with rumors of inner turmoil. Two of his star players getting ejected in the fourth quarter of an utterly frustrating day for the fans of the Blue and Gold.
It would also be poor form to gloat in their defeat considering the Celtics could be suffering a very similar fate two games from now. Instead, let’s go down memory lane together to a time just a few short months ago when CelticsHub was entertained by a few Laker fans (for all I know it could have been one person) that spent some time commenting on our posts. You may recognize the username’s Kobe Bryant, Lakersfan, and Lakers GM. They were really obnoxious, but it’s important to remember that not all Lakers’ fans are like this. The guys at Forum Blue and Gold are awesome and provide great insight (as does frequent Laker fan commenter Renato Afonso). I post the following to remind everyone of what not to do on Lakers’ blogs.
Now you can go ahead and read them with the knowledge that the Lakers will be working on their respective golf games as of today. Enjoy!
