THE TEXAS TRIANGLE!!!

It's referring to the Boston Celtics incredible run through the Lone Star State of Texas. That's right, the Boston Celtics managed to achieve something very rare and sweep the 3 super competitive and playoff bound NBA teams from Texas. THE TEXAS TRIANGLE!!! Back to back to back games!!! Not to forget to mention that they beat them all on the road. It's truly amazing to see what the Boston Celtics are doing this year especially after how bad their team was last year. The Celtics beat the San Antonio Spurs first then jumped over to those once 22 game winning streak Houston Rockets and last but not least squeaked by Dirk Nowitzki and the Dallas Mavericks. There again the Boston Celtics are showing the nation that whoever wants to win the NBA Championship this year will have to somehow claw their way through them to win it.

Now the NBA's Western Conference in total is a much more powerful conference. They have stronger teams that will make the playoffs this year in the likes of the Los Angeles Lakers, New Orleans Hornets, Houston Rockets, Utah Jazz, Phoenix Suns, San Antonio Spurs, Dallas Mavericks and ending with the Golden State Warriors unless the Denver Nuggets find a way to get on a winning streak themselves to squeak past Golden State to make the playoffs. Let's see the strength of the Eastern Conference. Well there they are those team to beat leading the way Boston Celtics, Detroit Pistons, Orlando Magic, Cleavland Cavaliers, Toronto Raptures, Washington Wizards, Philadelphia 76ERS, and bringing up the rear is the New Jersey Nets and the Atlanta Hawks. The New Jersey Nets and the Atlanta Hawks are battling for the 8TH and final spot in the playoffs. So as you can see and if you know anything about the NBA the stronger Conference is definitely the Western Conference.

The only team I think has any kind of chance to get past the Boston Celtics to advance to the NBA finals in the Eastern Conference is the Detroit Pistons and that's a slim chance. Now on the other hand in the more dominate Western Conference I like 6 teams to be able to give Boston a run for their money if they advance to the NBA Finals. The Lakers, Hornets, Jazz, Suns, Spurs and Mavericks. All those teams have championship caliber players.

All in all I just don't see any team getting past the 3 stars ( Kevin Garnett, Paul Pierce, and Ray Allen ) that the Boston Celtics have to win the NBA Championship this year. Something we will see soon enough!!!

Until my next post, thanks for reading, and keep sports on your mind.
