Compare the 2008 Finals with the 2010?

Here are a few questions to start conversation...

Were the Boston Celtics better in 2008 or are they a better team now?
Would the 08 Celtics beat the 2010 Lakers?
Were the Lakers better in 2008 or are they a better team now?
Would the 08 Lakers beat the 2010 Celtics?

And right now, who do you think is going to win the series?

Thoughts?

I still think we should wait for the series to be over before we start comparing them. The level of talent this celtics team played against to get to the finals was much better than the competition they faced in 08. With accomplishing that feet along with the emergence of Rondo, this team does look better than the one in 08 but I'm going to wait for the series to be over before I finish my assessment.

Boston's bench was definitely better in 2008. Those guys were difference makers and killed my Lakers in 08. The bully play of Posey on D, while spreading the floor with clutch threes is a big part of what Boston is missing now. Factor in House, PJ Brown, Powe.

As for their starters I think the rise of Rondo and decline of KG balance out. Allen still can get hot and cold. Artest is really making a difference against Pierce.

This Laker squad is better than 08, and if healthy (Bynum/Kobe still tore up) would romp on either Boston squad. 08 Lakers would not beat these Celtics.

the celtics in 08 had a legitimite big 3, 3 of which were still playing great ball.....the new big 3 isn't what they were, in 08, they showed everynight, now you don't know what to expect every game, sometimes they show, sometimes they don't....big difference IMO....even with rondo being better, can't compare having 3 players playing all star basketball....

the 2010 lakers is better, back in 08, I didn't see Pau being physical whatsoever, this year, he looks like he can go toe to toe with KG, he's no longer considered soft, something that was badly criticized in 08....this team grew and got more mature over the last 3 years...

Were the Boston Celtics better in 2008 or are they a better team now?
No, 08 was way better.

Would the 08 Celtics beat the 2010 Lakers? Tough to call. But I would say Yes in 7

Were the Lakers better in 2008 or are they a better team now?
Much better now, especially with Bynum in the post.

Would the 08 Lakers beat the 2010 Celtics? So very close, but I would say yes in 7.

This thread can be revived if the Lakers make the finals again in 2011 with a 100% healthy Bynum and Kobe.

I think the 2008 Lakers with a healthy Bynum would have beaten the 2008 C's Perkins was just to much for L.O.

More like Turiaf didn't give Pau or Lamar a moment of relief

Were the Boston Celtics better in 2008 or are they a better team now? Better in 08

Would the 08 Celtics beat the 2010 Lakers?
No.....Bynum makes a HUGE difference and this series solidifies the fact that if Bynum had been healthy it would of been a different series just with his BIG BODY alone and long arms it would of made an impact.

Were the Lakers better in 2008 or are they a better team now?
Lakers are obviously a better team now.

Would the 08 Lakers beat the 2010 Celtics?
If Bynum were healthy YES.
