That wasn't no upset. please I hate the Celtics with every fiber of my being cause I'm a Huge Lakers fan by the way. GO LAKERS. KOBE BRYANT FOR 2X Finals MVP. but the celtics they don't need to get it done in the regular season you have to get it done in the post season. I commend Orlando 4 that 8 and 0 winning streak but they were playing minor league teams that had no chance to win. Now they are playing Men. That's not an upset. Magics don't have the players or experience to beat a veteran dare I say it Celtics team.

I have the same distaste for the Lakers but what you wrote was well put. Just because you are the higher seed and walked over opponents you are supposed to beat, doesn't make this an upset.

I look forward to a Boston-LA final with of course, Boston taking another one home.
