In my eyes, it's a damn shame if the Lakers win a title this season. It will always be in the back of my mind - as a Celtics fan - that I don't think the Lakers would have had a chance against a healthy Celtics team. The Celtics took the Magic (the same team facing the Lakers in the Finals) to 7 games and almost won in 6 games. The Celtics were loaded healthy and had more heart than all the teams in the playoffs combined. That is undeniable. It really is such a shame. No rematch.

So Kobe can win his title and he can know in his mind that this season - he was second best.

wowww how incredibly inappropriate....

Who's to say the Celtics would have been in the finals? The Cavs match up better against the Celtics than they do against Orlando...

Boston STILL would have had trouble with Chicago even WITH Garnett....

Plus... are you writing off Big Baby's contributions? cause those wouldnt have happened with Garnet...

You can't write off a team just because you were injured...... Don't open that door to let the "last year we would have won if we had Bynum" comments in... (even though I'm really not in that group).

haha thats what you get for having an old team. your guys have lots of miles on them and i honestly don't see boston being a factor anymore in the east. orlando is young, cavs are young. boston is old and kg's knee isnt going to ever be what it was.

besides, last year the lakers were missing bynum and ariza. so in my opinion, last year was a damn shame since a healthy laker team would have whooped. boo hoo. whatever makes you feel better! loser.

Ask the Celtics if the champagne tasted any less sweet for not playing a healthy Laker team last season.

Besides, the Lakers beat the Celtics twice this season, each time with less than their full squad. Nothing to prove.

Bynum sucks. He's a bust and quite frankly, a piece of crap.

He's done nothing in the Finals AND the playoffs. Nothing but foul Dwight Howard.

Once again, Bynum blows. He's a bust. He's about as good as Leon Powe. So yeah, you were pretty much healthy last season. The Lakers are lucky that LeBron didn't get to the Finals either because he would have whooped them as well.

i agree that it would have probably been a boston/la rematch. who knows who would win. i think it would have been a better series than last year. ariza would help a lot and bynum some. hopefully next year both squads can stay healthy and keep the core together and we can see a match up of both teams fully loaded.

What would have happened if Lebron joined LA half way through the season after announcing retirement and Paul Pierce retired or hurt his tibia?

If the Celtics were REALLY good they would have done it w/o KG

when the Celtics were healthy this year, they opened up 27-2. just keep that in mind. and that was before Rondo and Big Baby became the players people saw later on.

This year's Celtics were indeed better than last year. They were able to win 62 games without KG playing in about 26 of them. If KG went down last year, it would have been a lot worse.

Also dont forget Leon Powe's contribution in last year's Finals. He didnt get to play much this year as well.

A healthy Celtics team this year would have been an incredibly difficult to beat.

picture this, outside of KG playing. off the bench, the Celtics would have had Marbury, House, (Pierce or Ray stays in), Big Baby, and Leon Powe. instead of Scal and mikki "moore fouls than points"

Maybe if LA had Bynum last year the Lakers win and we aren't even talkin about Boston. Enough with this nonsense.

Do you truely think any LA fan is thinking at this moment, "man we're 1 win from a title, but damn, that near 50pt loss a year ago is still front and center on my mind".
Who cares. You don't hear Kings fans or Suns fans talking about misfortunes.
That's the way of the game.

The fact is, KG and Powe DID get injured. We'll never know what could have happend, but what we are seeing is LA take advantages of the opportunities presented to them and they will get their ring for it.
No one deserves it more. Not the Magic, not Lebron, and certainly not the Celtics.

u gotta understand how frusterating this year has been.

picture this,

Red Sox went to game 7 against the Rays without World Series MVP Mike Lowell and a healthy Josh Beckett or even a healthy David Ortiz and with Manny being a *** and messing it up causing a trade (we do love Bay tho).

The Patriots lost Tom Brady on opening day and went 11-5 MISSED THE PLAYOFFS. some how

Then watching KG and Leon go down like that was effen cruel to see.

as a Celtics realist, believe me this year's team was much better than last year. if KG went down last year, no way they get as far as they did this year.

frustrating year for what could have been. I know injuries shouldnt be an excuse, but man look at these names that were MIA.

I'm not sure how many non Boston fans are going to feel bad for Redsox team that's won 2 rings in the last 5 years, Patriots who won 3 rings this decade and the Celtics who won just last year.

It's okay, you've probably been in the closet a long time. It will probably bring joy to some of your close one's lives that you have brought your gayness into the public.

chill. let them enjoy it. dont be like some of their fans last year being bitter.

I am frustrated too that we did not get to see our team rightfully defend the title, but it is wat it is.

no i totally understand and thanks. I am diehard Boston sports, but Im not a hater.

of course people dont like us. we been winning everything this decade. not to mention the Red Sox are now 8-0 vs. the yankees.

dont get me wrong, we have been blessed and lucky and we still are. All of our sports teams are run by amazingly bright management and the Patriots and Red Sox are in position to contend for more titles this year and beyond.

I'm a Kings fan, but I'll give you guys credit for a great playoff run this year and last year, but, your argument about a healthy Lakers team w/ Kobe playing is kind of out there? Bynum doesn't even play in crunch time minutes for these playoffs, and Ariza against pierce last year? IDK, I think you guys just had a difficult time guarding those healthy players, but you got to admit, Kobe was healthy and that is your offense.
