I was happy to see the Lakers win and was ecstatic after the clock hit triple zero in the 4th quarter with Lakers on top by 9. But all I saw was Lakers players hugging each other in happiness and the Celtics pissed off and walking the other way. At no time did I see an ESPN camera point to any Laker and Celtic player exchanging words after the game, Shaking hands or anything. I saw some sportsmanship before the game had started, but not after the game...Can anyone correct me if I am wrong? This kinda makes me hate the Celtics more!!!! At least give a half-assed congratulations!

no your right...there is no love loss between us and the Cs though so I don't blame the Lakers for not wanting to shake hands

after what happened last year..I would have slapped a Celtic players Hand away and told him things..lol

The only Celtic that showed any respect was Doc Rivers who raised his hand and pointed toward the Lakers. I think it may have been to Kobe. But idk. The rest of the Celtics all walked off.

They were too busy arguing with each other, E.T was shouting at Eddie House when walking towards the locker room.

That was one of my favorite parts of the game. The fact that the Celtics were at each others throats.

That's called the fire of a champion.
We certainly need a little more of it if we want to take them out in a 7 game series.

Pointing fingers is not part of having a fire of a champion. Rondo and Allen were doing it. Paul Pierce had to come and push Allen to his spot.

Now yelling at each other is good to get your point across, but pointing fingers and blaming each other is nothing but frustration.

Yup, it was more blaming then anything else. That's not fire that's just finding an excuse for failure.

There was a play where Bynum corralled an offensive rebound on Perkins and Garnett. He then took it up and flushed it. In the wake of it was Garnett giving Perkins an earful which the latter did not like and barked back. That brought a smile to my face. One of many afterwards...

These teams hate each other.

A handshake and little hug before tipoff is all that is needed.

That's how it should be between the Lakers and the Celtics. We don't need to give them any pleasantries, and we don't want any from them. A handshake at the beginning of the game, maybe a look of acknowledgment is all that's needed.

This happens more than you think actually. Not just after "hated" rivals go against eachother, but sometimes during tough, close games, or an embarrassing blowout and guys just want to go back to the locker room.

Te Celtics have a little uneasiness about them, I saw that last year, if you think about it they have some pretty conflicting personalities on that team, add that to Pierce's new found OVER confidence and "leadership" from the Big 3, guys like Perkins and Big Baby with fiery tempers, traditionally selfish players like House...there is a great possibilty of a implosion on this team, if struck by significant adversity, especially a key injury

Again - this team, as currently constructed won't make it out of the second round of the playoffs, let alone the West or win the Finals.---fido on 2011 Lakers
