Congrats to the NBA champion Celtics and former Magic coach Doc Rivers

The Boston Celtics completed one of the most amazing turnarounds in one season in NBA history, going from 24 wins last season to 66 wins this season and the NBA championship with their dominant 131-92 thrashing of the Lakers in Game 6.

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.

    The Celtics are going to be really tough again next season; here's hoping the Magic can add the right pieces this offseason so they can be right there challenging the Celts for supremacy in the East next season.

    Yeah good for the celts,i personally hate lakers fans. The magic should be able to challenge them pretty soon,but if the celts continue to beat up on the league and win 65+ games a year,it's gonna be hard for any team to go into boston and win as long as the big three are together. I just hope that its the magic next year in the eastern finals to face boston,that would be a good first step.
