NBA Finals, Lacrosse Style

In the New York Post today, Peter Vecsey writes that at the conclusion of the NBA Finals, the Celtics and Lakers will have combined to win half of the titles contested. This is the 62nd NBA Finals; the Celtics enter with 16 titles, the Lakers with 14.

Sounds a little bit like Hopkins and Syracuse in lacrosse. Those teams have combined to win 19 of the 38 NCAA titles.

Also, the Lakers and Celtics are meeting in the NBA Finals for the first time since 1987.

Hopkins and Syracuse met in the title game this year for the first time since 1989.

I submit that Hopkins is the Celtics; a long tradition of success thanks to teams that were defined by defense and rabid fans.

The Lakers could be Syracuse: both have been epitomized by a loose, fast-break style that is appealing to fans.

Now if only the Celtics had a pep band...

Please respect the decision of the NCAA that stripped Syracuse of its 1990 title, and not flaut that decision by referring to Syracuse's 10 titles. They only have won 9, according to the NCAA.
