    As a die hard celtic fan I have to admit the Lakers have adjusted far better to the 'new' NBA than the celts have.

    22 years in the doldrums tells me that.

    Why from the beginning? Quick, who won the most NFL championships from the beginning? don't look now. Everyone knows that the Steelers won 6 SBs, Cowboys and 49ers 5. Why do you think people don't remember the 1930s NFL championships?

    Of course you want to count the dark ages because that would give you an edge, but since the NBA got to big-time after the Bird/Magic era, you totally lost the edge.

    10-4.

    How many championships did the Celtics won from 2009-10? or from 1987-2002? You want to play random years? you are on.

    If 60 wins really doesn't matter why make excuses like Kobe missed 9 games and Bynum missed 17 games? 

    And Bynum will always miss games. Didn't you know that he's the next Sam Bowie?

    You said a few months the Lakers had only won 11. Wow, they won another 5 in the off season? Incredible!!

    BTW, the Laker banner ceremony was great. The intros of the team by it's own members was classy. Well done Lakers!

    Posted by P34[/QUOTE]

    Don't forget about Gasol's 17 missed games. When you go back to back with championship runs, and you fail to win 60 games, nobody cares. The Lakers went into 43 contests missing a key player, and they still won. Not very many teams in the NBA can have that many things go wrong, and still come out the other side like the Lakers did.

    The Lakers won their division, their conference, and the championship. You really think that winning 57 games vs  60 really matters at that point to anyone who isn't trying to be petty? 

    Cleveland won 65, and that got them where? The only thing that matters is rings. I bet every person in the Celtics organization would echo those same sentiments.

    That is what Kobe, and the best front court in basketball is after, and that is what they achieved. No one in Lakers land is crying woe is me, they didn't win 60 regular season games. 

    The next Sam Bowie was a factor that sent the Celtics chasing a pair of over the hill front court players to try and keep up. Keep praying for injuries, it might be your only chance.

    This little post of yours motivated me to see what was what with your behavior, and I have just found you to be a little off on your assessment of your own behavior in enemy waters when you troll. Your decorum on the Lakers board was no better, and perhaps worse than many here. You said whatever you wanted, and were as condescending and sarcastic as you wanted to be toward the fans and the team. The big difference, there weren't Lakers fans constantly whining and crying to moderators to have you banned. They all put up with your "trolling" and were much more tolerant of your comments than you have ever been in return here. Heck you were actively talking smack to the fans there, and then had the audacity to claim you hated arguing with Lakers fans. Now that right there is funny. Strange place to be, for a man that hates arguing with Lakers fans.

    Does this mean the Lakers actually only have 11 championships?

    Dark ages you say?

    No SB in the 1930s, but there were NFL champions in the 1930s. Yet you still can't tell us which team won the most NFL championships (hint: it's a team that won a lot in the bush league era).

    Can't blame you for that. Normal fans don't pay too much attention to championships won in the Jurassic age. Celtics fans, of course, have to hold on to that in order to brag that they were (just barely) better than the Lakers.

    10-4  and you can't do anything about it.

    "17-16 and you can't do anything about that either", you say?

    Of course I can. The NBA is a big money business now, not a bush league that the Celtics dominated. Who won the most championship since the NBA hit big-time?

    Why blame me? I'm just pointing it out, the Lakers had an easy schedule last year but couldn't get 60 wins. 

    What if this year the Lakers get 60 wins, I don't think you will say that this argument is lame because I bet if the Lakers win 60 games this year you would be telling me how wrong I am.

    Let's discard the Lakers's 6 won before the Bird/Magic era.

    And the Celtics' 13 too.

    I've been saying 10-4 all along.

    Posted by P34[/QUOTE]

    I actually think 60 wins is a hard target to make. As said above you can win 65 games in a season, but if you don't win a title it's meaningless.

    Lakers will win between 50 to 60 games, same with the Celtics.

    I say this because both teams are veteran teams, and are running the season as if it's a marathon and not a sprint. If you win a close game and play bad it's not such a bad thing. If you lose a second game of a back to back it's not such a big deal.

    I think you guys lost to Cleveland because the Cavs were pumped for their season opener. Plus you'll have teams lift when they play the Celtics. Works the same for the Lakers and also this season, The Heat because of the off season.

    Boston Fans.. where loyalty is a weapon!  The funny thing about my bretheren in this region, they no nothing beyond their own teams, except maybe a one or two obvious rival teams.  Ask them something truely basketball related about the Sacramento Kings or Charlotte Bobcats and you'll get a bunch of snide or cut down remarks as a way of deflecting their total ignorance to the actual subject.  

    In essence, Boston fans are pretty much laundry lovers, like a gang banger.  Wearing green and being front runners.  Pride has its rules!
