Well, here we are.
History is at our doorstep. And it’s time to let it in.
Or something to that effect.
Twelve hours from now, the Los Angeles Lakers and Boston Celtics will square off in the last possible game of the NBA season, and one of these teams will be crowned as this year’s champion.
It couldn’t have been scripted any better.
Both squads are very confident heading into the matchup; Glen Davis more or less guaranteed a victory for the C’s, and according to Jordan Farmar, Kobe Bryant assured his teammates following Game 5 that the Lakers were going to win two in a row at home and the title.
The time for tired story lines, subplots and clichés has come and gone. It’s time for the two best teams in the L to do battle for the ultimate prize.
I can’t wait for tonight’s game, and strongly suspect that all of you feel the same.
