How sweet it is! The Los Angeles Lakers defeated their biggest rival in Boston Celtics to win their second straight title and 16th overall moments ago at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, California. The final score was 83-79.

The game was one of the most thrilling games in NBA history as the game was all Celtics as they were determined to bring back their 2008 hunch but Ron Artest and Pau Gasol’s crucial plays created a “Showtime comeback” until they ended up winning. Celtics coach Doc Rivers thought of using all of his usual players during the final period until 0.0 clock ticked down. What a game. This serves as LA’s revenge on their 2008 loss against the Celtics, who had the same core from the 2008 team. Now almost all of the Lakers have 2 rings, and so as 5-time Champs Derek Fisher and Bryant, and 11-time champion Coach Phil Jackson (plus 2 from his playing days)

Finals MVP Kobe Bryant did not perform pretty well until he broke the ice and scored crucial baskets which gave him his second straight Bill Russell Award with 23 points. His series averages are. According to him, this was the sweetest championship he ever tasted.

The defending champions will hold a parade Monday, with the team riding floats from Staples Center down Figueroa Street to the USC campus in downtown Los Angeles. A rally at the great  Coliseum last year attracted 95,000 fans, but the Lakers are skipping the arena in favor of a more interactive celebration, the team said.
