I guess Kobe didn't have it in him. Pau Gasol tried to help, but nobody gave him any credit. You heard it here first: the Celtics have won the NBA Finals, beating the L.A.
Kobes Lakers in six games. There's something amazing about the story of a team that goes from the second-worst team in the NBA (only beating the Memphis Grizzlies by two games) to national champions in one year.
So it's not as sweet as if the Spurs won it, but it'll have to do.
