Maybe it was appropriate that Nate Robinson was the hero for the Celtics tonight... a guy I forgot was even on the roster.
He's #4... which is exactly the number of wins I hope the Celtics have left in them to get banner #18.
After the hiccup of the Game 4 overtime and Game 5, they are back to being a team that doesn't look intimidated by anyone. Not Wade's Heat.. Not LeBron's Cavs... Not Howard's Magic...
Why should Kobe's Lakers be any different?
I talked to my friend Kenny Mack, the great writer for the Santa Monica Daily Press, who knows a crap load more than me about basketball, broke down the Celtics chances in the Finals.
"We are 4 wins away not only from raising banner #18 and our second in 3 years... but it will officially put an asterix next to the Lakers title last year. Garnett was hurt, otherwise we'd be talking three-peat."
Kenny began to breakdown the Lakers player by player to me showing why the Celtics have more than a punchers chance to win.
I stopped him. "There is one important thing that the Celtics have that the Lakers don't right now... they've already clinched a spot in the Finals!"
LET'S GO SUNS! LET'S GO SUNS!
Paul Pierce scoring-best Celtic? best Californian?
