The Celtics remembered the old mantra, and played the kind of lockdown D that they had played all season in the Finals. They kept Kobe and crew off-balance from the beginning. So hats off to them, they deserve this title.
The only solace for this long-time Laker fan is that the team is young, Bynum will be back next season, and hey, even the Showtime Lakers lost to the Celtics in '84 with Magic looking overmatched. Just like them, I think this current group will be back.
