Lakers' legend Jerry West admitted on Monday that losses to the Celtics during his playing days are still incredibly painful.

"When we had all the horrible losses in the finals, it maybe didn't leave a scar on some other people, but it left a lifelong scar on me," West said. "I felt that we were really letting the city down. You take it so personally. They were disappointed every year, every year, every year."

In the 1960s, the Lakers lost to Boston in the NBA Finals six times.

We bring the artificial scars with us for as long as we are a laker fan, despite whether or not we went through that phase.
