Boston, we did it!!!

Yeah that's what Kevin Garnett, Ray Allen, the Finals MVP Paul Pierce and the rest of the Boston Celtics squad are saying to the NBA and the rest of the world.

Last night the Boston Celtics put a whooping on the Los Angeles Lakers and stomped a mud hole in them beating the Lakers by a ridiculous margin of 39 points. The 2Nd largest victory in Finals history. The Celtics were able to win the 2008 NBA Championship by a lopsided 4 games to 2 in front of their home fans bringing back to Boston for the 17Th time, the NBA Championship trophy and completing the dream season for the Boston Celtics. Also completing my earlier prediction that they would win the NBA Championship this year. Way to go Boston Celtics!!!

Paul Pierce was brilliant throughout the Finals series and eventually snatched up his first NBA Championship and MVP at the same time. What else could you ask for in one season? Paul Pierce averaged just over 21 points, 6 assists and 4 rebounds a game during the Finals. Needless to say Paul Pierce was stellar and definitely deserves the MVP trophy.

Now the other two all-stars for Boston, Kevin Garnett and Ray Allen were great as well. The Celtics had a awesome trio this year that couldn't be stopped throughout the regular season and as we seen, the playoffs. Ray Allen finished last nights game with a Finals tying 7 three pointers and Kevin Garnett was his usual greatness.

To end the NBA season with the Championship trophy is what all the NBA players are working for throughout the season, so to win it is a great accomplishment.

As far as the Boston Celtics are concerned, I'm sure as long as they have a healthy Paul Pierec, Kevin Garnett, and Ray Allen on their squad then they are looking to repeat next year and the followings as well. I could see it, can you???

17 NBA Championships and counting!!!

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