Congrats to the NBA champion Celtics and former Magic coach Doc Rivers
The turnaround started in the offseason, as the Celtics acquired two proven stars in Kevin Garnett and Ray Allen to go along with their own star Paul Pierce. The "Big Three" were complemented by a solid and underrated supporting cast and a solid defensive philosophy from coach Doc Rivers.
I have to admit I thought the Lakers would win the series, based on the fact they had only played 15 playoff games to 20 playoff games for the Celtics. In addition, the Celtics had to sweat through two grueling 7 game series against the surprising Hawks and the Cavaliers, while the most games the Lakers had to play in a series was six against Utah; but with their suffocating defense and the dominance of the "Big Three", the Celtics proved they were the best team in the NBA without question.
Hopefully someday, our Magic can be where the Celtics are right now.
