The Boston Celtics are NBA Champions!

This one was over a few minutes into the 3rd quarter. The Celts combined stifling defense with red-hot shooting and rebounding domination to blow the Lakers out of the building.

The post-game celebration and trophy presentation are happening right now. Seeing Kevin Garnett fall to the parquet and kiss the Celtics logo at center court was awesome. Seeing him hug Bill Russell and say “I got my own” was magic.

Somewhere upstairs, Red (the other Red) has lit his victory cigar.

Boston is the City of Champions!

Congratulations C’s!!!
