Here we are at last. We've played 1,305 games over the course of seven months. We've sent 28 teams and 400 players on vacation. And wouldn't you know it? The two teams still standing are the Boston Celtics and Los Angeles Lakers, who will face off in the Finals for the 12th time.
The Celtics' 21st trip to the Finals is a bit of a surprise, while the Lakers 31st was expected all along.NBA.comThough L.A. has made 10 more trips to the Finals, Boston has two more titles and they've won nine of the 11 previous head-to-head matchups.
Who do you all like in this series? I'm picking the Lakers in six. The Celtics aren't stopping Kobe from getting ring number five.
