In the most-watched edition of The Finals in nine seasons, the Los Angeles Lakers outlasted the Boston Celtics in a thrilling seven-game series to win their 16th NBA title and second in a row. Now Bombo Sports & Entertainment and NBA Entertainment team up to bring fans the Lakers’ complete playoff run with the release of the 2010 NBA Champions DVD on July 27, 2010. The 2010 NBA Champions DVD was produced by the award-winning NBA Entertainment which, once again, secured an all-access, behind-the-scenes pass for fans to follow some of the world’s greatest athletes as they battled for their second consecutive title. The 2010 NBA Champions DVD marks Bombo’s first project as part of its new relationship with the NBA.
Features on the 2010 NBA Champions DVD include “Sounds of the Playoffs,” “Top Plays of the Year,” and exclusive interviews with Head Coach Phil Jackson, General Manager Mitch Kupchak, and players Kobe Bryant, Pau Gasol, Derek Fisher, Ron Artest, and Lamar Odom, among others. Additional bonus features highlight the emotional “Journey” by the Lakers as they earn their fifth championship in the last 10 seasons. With unparalleled team “Unity,” a “Belief” in their ability after everyone doubted them, and a “Dream” to set a new standard of success, this celebrated franchise further cemented its legacy as one of the greatest organizations in all of sports.
“We are thrilled to tip off our NBA relationship with a film climaxing in such an exciting and historic edition of The Finals, with the 2010 NBA Champion Lakers defeating the Celtics,” said Bombo Executive Producer Paul Doyle, Jr. “The Finals television ratings were remarkable and this film captures all the emotion and drama that made the regular season, the playoffs, and The Finals so noteworthy.”
From the start of the season, the Lakers focused on repeating as champions. With Bryant’s string of game-winning shots, the emergence of All-Star big man Gasol, the steady hand of Fisher, and a strong supporting cast, the Lakers finished with the best record in the West.
In the playoffs, L.A. survived a challenge from the up-and-coming Oklahoma City Thunder, swept past theUtah Jazz, and held off the Phoenix Suns to set up a rematch with the Boston Celtics, the team that defeated them in The Finals in 2008. In the latest chapter of the league’s greatest rivalry, Artest took a star turn as the Lakers earned redemption in a thrilling seven-game series against Boston. Fisher and Bryant each won their fifth championship rings, while Phil Jackson earned his record 11th as head coach.
