I can't tell you how excited I am at the prospect of a Laker/Celtic Finals. Two champions that are playing their best basketball, relatively healthy, one team wanting revenge, and in the midst of the greatest rivalry in NBA history.
No doubt. Nothing made me happier in 08 than sticking it to Kobe. I'd love to see it happen again.
The '08 season was found money. The season started with Kobe wanting to play on Pluto, and ended with "holy crap, we're in the Finals!" This is a very different Laker team. Vladimir Radmnaovic, Luke Walton, Sasha Vujacic, & Ronny Turiaf's minutes have been replaced by Ron Artest, Andrew Bynum, & Shannon Brown. HUGE upgrade.
