We ♥ the Celtics?
Lakers fans ♥ the Celtics?
The team the Lakers and their fans used to love to hate, the one they yearn to see in June, to obliterate the memory of last spring -- not to mention other springs -- is back.
Wild as it might be, that makes the Celtics local darlings between now and then.
"The great dichotomy!" says radio host Vic "the Brick" Jacobs. "The ambivalence wracks my soul. The ultimate humiliation of Game 6, the 39-point massacre by the Celtics, must be avenged. There must be a physical catharsis, an emotional catharsis."
(For Vic's KLAC teammates, whose names I can't divulge, but whose initials are PP and MMS, I keep going to him because he's the beating heart of Lakerdom, or its most crazed recognizable figure, edging Mychal Thompson, who still dresses like a normal person.)
You've heard of Jews for Jesus? This is Lakers Fans for Celtics.
Of course, Our Guys in Green are just here to play the Clippers, but these are perilous times with Kevin Garnett out, in their race with younger, bigger, deeper Cleveland.
The peril is such that the Celtics are now expected to sign pariah of pariahs Stephon Marbury, who finally reached a buyout agreement with the Knicks on Tuesday.

I think the Lakers should want the Celtics. They're about to show them whats up, as they already went 2-0 against them in the regular season. I think we got them figured out, and I think Kobe wants it more than ever. Bynum is coming of age, and hopefully he comes off this injury business strong.
Lakers in 5 or 6.

I could care less. Lets worry about ourselves. If the Lakers start worrying about the Celtics and not themselves, Kobe and crew will be watching the Finals on TV.
well said. I really do think that the 2 regular season wins (although we can use it towards our advantage and momentum) won't matter come playoff time. Boston's bench just got better with Moore and the possibility of Marbury. We need to KILL teams...literally kill them and show that in every single game we play heading into the playoffs because what worries me is when our team is just now addressing numerous pick and roll defense plays, defending the 3 pt line, giving up leads againt below 500 teams and Boston and Cleveland are wiping out western conference contenders by 20 or more pts.

Totally share your sentiments here, so f'in true. It's beyond frustrating our team can't have more of a killer instinct for 48 minutes and just put teams away easily, especially crappier teams. Too often we just get complacent/comfortable, let down, and let teams back into the game. Sure, we've been winning, but it shouldn't even have to come down to such close games, plus it'd be nice to have our starters rest more.

As much as I hate Boston, I admire that them and Cleveland are able to kill teams on a consistent basis where as we, not so much.

The Celtics, their moronic "fans" and any cancerous arrogance factory they sign to join their crew of ignorant crybabies doesn't scare me one bit.
I want the Celtics healthy and at full strength - it will make the beating that much sweeter.

Why is Marbury still relevant?
