Lucky Number 17

The Boston Celtics are your 2008 NBA Champions, after providing one of the most dominating performances in a title-clinching game. Ever.

Yes, it wasn't a close game, but maybe that was appropriate - after all, the Celtics were the best team all season. One final, dominant performance seems fitting - a sort of exclamation point on a record-setting season.

In this rather lackluster championship game, don't forget to give credit to the Celtics - they played like they were behind the entire game, even when up by more than 30 points.

It is the first Celtics' title in 22 years, and comes just one year after the worst season in the franchise's history.

Paul Pierce is your Finals MVP, and the city of Boston has another professional sports championship (GINO!).
