A few hours from now, the most awaited 7th game of the 2010 NBA Finals will finally begin. As we all know, this year's finalists are the greatest NBA rivalries of all time, Los Angeles Lakers vs Boston Celtics.
History really repeats itself, just like what will happen tonight at Staples Center, Los Angeles, California. This is the 12th time the teams have met in the championship round.These two teams first met last November 9, 1948, but it was not a championship game. The Celtics won nine of their previous 11 championship games against the Lakers, winning in 1959, 1962, 1963, 1965, 1966, 1968, 1969, 1984, and 2008, while the Lakers won in 1985 and 1987.The Celtics currently hold the most NBA Championships with a total of 17. On the other hand, the Lakers won 15 times in the NBA finals.The Celtics-Lakers rivalry hit its peak in the 1980s when Larry Bird of the Celtics and Magic Johnson of the Lakers led their teams to win a combined eight NBA titles in the decade, with the Lakers winning five and the Celtics winning three.
As we al
l know, Celtics and the Lakers met in the finals 2 years ago. The Boston Celtics won last 2008 four games to two.This 2010 the Lakers will be the team with home-court advantage. Will the Boston Celtics still win against the Lakers? Or will the Lakers avenge their defeat and be the champion of the 2010 NBA Finals?
This year, new players for both teams have entered. Notable new players are Ron Artest by the Lakers and Rajon Rondo by the Celtics.The key to both team's victory is teamwork. Whoever plays better and has better teamwork will obviously win tonight's Finals.Tonight will be another exciting and historic night as the two teams tied 3-3 in the previous 6 games. Fans will scream, cheer and give their best support for their respective teams. It's one of the biggest games in the history of the NBA. I bet more sports fanatics will watch NBA tonight rather than watching soccer games in the FIFA World Cup.
But if the finals of the World Cup and NBA will happen simultaneously, I'm not sure where's the attention will be with the majority of sport fanatics around the world. But most probably they will be watching the World Cup, because it's the whole "world, not just "nationals". That's just my mere hypothesis, don't judge just me please.
Anyway, tonight at exactly 9:00 PM E.T., the Lakers will meet the Celtics once again in the Game 7 of the 2010 NBA Finals.We will not be live streaming tonight's game, but we'll give you several options of where to watch the 2010 NBA Finals Game 7. You can watch the finals tonight in various SOPCast channels, it will also be available in uStream and Justin TV.That' all for now. More updates will be posted later before the game starts.
