This is for anyone who spent time they'll never get back watching the New Jersey Nets this season. This is for anyone who has lost trust in the refereeing, who is fed up with the endless LeBron James speculation, who wishes for less quantity and more quality over the eight-month season. This is for anyone who loves pro basketball and has been told it doesn't matter anymore.
The Celtics and Lakers will meet again here Thursday in Game 7, and no winner-take-all event in any sport could matter more. The Celtics took a bullet for fans everywhere (outside New England, of course) by coming out sluggishly in Game 6 to encourage the Lakers' 89-67 win. Boston could have finished off the season Tuesday, but that would have been anticlimactic and premature. Now everybody wins.TAGGED: NBA Finals 2010
