    ...Sorry if someone else may have already made this comparison but isn't it interesting how these two teams show an almost complete role/reversal from the same rivals of the 80's. The 80's white boy Celts had Bird, McHale, that whiny crybaby faced brat (can't remember his name) while the athletic Lakers had Magic, Worthy, Kareem, Cooper, Byron Scott, etc. Now it's the Lakers who are loaded up on white boys (albeit mostly european) going against what seems to a superiorly athletic group of athletes in bean town. Do the Celtics even have a white player?

    The Lakers need to get these guys to muscle-up and get tougher or they won't be able to hang with the elite. It's possible that this present team is suffering from TMWF's. That would translate to...TOO MANY WHITE FOLKS :lol:
