Celtics vs. Lakers tonight - "Birthplace of Education" vs. lights, warmth and sunshine

 

     What is a rivalry? Found this definition, "Competition for the same objective or for superiority in the same field." We all know that the Lakers objective has always been to beat the beloved Celtics even if it means using refs to do so.  

Just look to the video evidence of game 7 of the 2010 NBA Finals. The Celtics were robbed.  To this writer it seems the Lakers are always chasing the Celtics. One team does it the hard and right way, the other does it with lots of help, read: the Pau Gasol trade, plus many others. Players just gifted to them over the years. 

     The Celtics franchise is never gifted any players through trades or free agency. They always seem to be ahead of the curve and the architect of that curve was Red Auerbach - outsmarting everyone, Then it was Danny doing the same getting KG, and Ray, thereby making every other NBA GM gun shy regarding any trades with Ainge. 

     Never in any game or series have the Celtics had the benefit of having the refs in their back pocket like the Flakers have over the years. Especially in Game 7 which still haunts Celtics fans. There have been plenty of special players on both ends. We all know their names. 

      While this rivalry is the most known one in sports let's look at these facts down below. 

     In 368 meetings the Celtics hold a total 42 game advantage! In the regular season it's a 30 game lead, and in the playoffs it's 12. The Celtics also hold the longest win streak vs the Lakers at beating them for 18 straight games. Yes, it's a rivalry but it seems the Celtics have dominated them, despite help from the zebra's. The Celtics have also won all their titles in the same place BOSTON! The Lakers "claim" Minneapolis rings as their own, shameful! Lest we forget the BUBBLE DISNEY PRODUCTION!

 

     Bleed Green Celtics fans! Let's get those Beat LA chants going now! Celtic Pride!

Nik Stauskas adds "shooting with size" voiced by Brad Stevens

 As a 6'6" shooting guard, 28-year-old Nik Stauskas adds that shooting with size sorely needed by the Boston Celtics. Drafted 8th-overall by the Sacramento Kings in 2014, Stauskas has bounced around to various teams since then. Nik Stauskas' deal with the Boston Celtics includes non-guaranteed salary for the second season in 2022-23, a source tells @celticsblog . — Keith Smith (@KeithSmithNBA) March 4, 2022 Nik has never averaged more than 9.5 points per game in the NBA, but Boston is most likely counting on his production for Grand Rapids in the G League as the incentive to sign him. In 17 games thus far, he has averaged 24.7 PPG, 6.2 RPG, 4.8 APG - while shooting 50% on field goals and 45% on treys. Nik Stauskas is signing a two-year deal with the Boston Celtics, his agents Mark Bartelstein and Andy Shiffman of @PrioritySports tell ESPN. Stauskas had an historic week, scoring 100 points on 57 and 43 point performances in back-to-back games for Grand Rapids. — Adrian Wo

Rick Barry belittling Bill Russell on TV revealed the real fool

 It happened on national TV during the 1981 NBA Finals . Two of the announcers were Rick Barry and Bill Russell . When asked who was in a photo passed to Barry, Rick responded, "I don't know. Looks like some fool over there (referring to Russ) with the watermelon grin on. Russell repeatedly indicated the photo was of KC Jones , but Barry would have none of it. Worth watching. Russ vs. Rick Barry! The "fool with the watermelon grin" wasn't Bill. It was Barry. Don't believe it was racial, but the two didn't get along. Russ was clearly pissed.

Then Barry tried to pass the photo to Bill, and Russ wanted none of that either. "No. I don't want them" is how Russell responded, clearly pissed, but still maintaining that aura of class and composure. Alth
