The 80s rivalry is back and alive and starts Friday. I have been a Celtics fan since the 70s’ Dave Cowens and Jojo White era watching it on replay over at RPN Iriga in a B&W television. But the big Q now is can the big 3 win their second ring in three years and repeat their 2008 championship run? A question in doubt but history tells that they managed an upset that year against Kobe Bryant and his reliable bunch (LA now has Ron Artest) but the 4th seeded Celtics remain underdog in the finals despite beating the two best teams in the league during their playoff run. Boston’s 24-year old spark plug Rajon Rondo’s emergence as the Celtics future will have to be the big difference if they want to win the series, he’s backed-up by the aging trio of Pierce, Garnett and Allen who still got game though at times erratic. Can they beat LA? They need to steal road games; it’s difficult but not impossible. Celtics in 7.
