It's a fact, live with it!
Of course you're not worried about it, it's the truth! We all know you Laker trolls don't care about the truth.
Seriously, the Celts had to face MJ, Dr. J, and Isiah Thomas. The Lakers only had to face Clyde Drexler and Dale Ellis? Tom Chambers?
OK, you lie. State where the NBA said that the Western Conference was weak. That's interesting...
In 1987 the Lakers faced a Sonics team with a losing record in the west finals. That Sonics team had Dale Ellis, Tom Chambers, and Xavier McDaniel as their Big 3. A team with a losing record makes it to the western finals is not weak?
The first time the Lakers beat the Celtics in 25 years was in 1985. That year the Lakers faced the Nuggets in the western finals. The Nuggets were led by Alex English and a bunch of role players.
Seriously, the Celtics had to face the likes of Isiah Thomas, MJ, Dr. J, even Dominique to get to the Finals. And the Lakers just need to beat Dale Ellis or Alex English in the west finals?
Of course the Lakers made it to the Finals, the opponents were WEAK!
Their opponents are WEAK? that's your wishy, washy, not a fact.
When the east were weak, i.e. 8th seed Knicks, Pacers, 76ers, Nets, etc as conference champs. Where were the Celtics, they couldn't even make the finals. They missed the playoffs and lost to the Nets twice (once a sweep).
So even if (big IF) the conference was weak, the Celtics still couldn't make it. So there is no such thing as "OF COURSE" for your team.
