Luck of the Irish

After a 22 year drought, the Boston Celtics claimed the most coveted title in the NBA. The talented threesome of Kevin Garnett, Paul Pierce, Ray Allen and the Boston Celtics defeated the Los Angeles Lakers 131-92 while the crowd chanted thunderously bidding the Lakers goodbye. It was quite exhilarating watching the Celtics celebrate their victory. From dances, chants and even a Gatorade rain, all was fair game. With a victory this monumental, Doc Rivers cannot complain about his Gatorade drenched suit; I suggest however that Pierce pay for the drycleaning though.
The Celtics deserve their win, it's been 22 years in the making and Boston deserves to be flooded in a sea of green and white. Their win shows the power of team work and a camaraderie off the court. A lesson to some other teams who will remain nameless.

Nonetheless, to Kobe Bryant and every Laker fan, wipe your tears and pray for the return of "Superman". The Lakers' loss tonight is testament that Kobe cannot carry the team without another star. Kevin Garnett couldn't do it on his own in Minneapolis and Kobe's team will not fare differently.

For anyone in a drought, miracles still happen. Go Celtics!
