Top 10 Greatest Moments in Lakers-Celtics Rivalry History

Arguably the greatest rivalry in all of sports.

Lakers and Celtics goes way, way back…from the Russel days, to the Bird and Magic days, and now to Kobe and Pierce.

This rivalry has had it all. Physical play, some of the game’s greatest, buzzer-beaters, and pure hate. What more could you ask for in a rivalry?

Well with that said, and the Lakers and C’s about to go for another brawl, I decided to break down the 10 greatest moments in Lakers/Celtics history. Enjoy NBA fans!

    This list is eff'ing terrible… you don't even have McHale's clothesline on Rambis…

    • The clothesline didn't have any impact on anything in any series.
      Sure, it's memorable, but it wasn't a great moment towards a championship.

  3. are you serious? says:

    This list sucks and so do you.

  4. You should have said it was towards a championship. That's not what your title says. You missed some good stuff.

  5. It’s perfect time to make a few plans for the longer term and it is time to be happy. I’ve learn this put up and if I may just I want to suggest you few fascinating things or suggestions. Perhaps you can write next articles referring to this article. I desire to learn even more issues approximately it!

  6. At this time it appears like Drupal is the top blogging platform available right now. (from what I’ve read) Is that what you are using on your blog?

  7. Its like you read my mind! You seem to know so much about this, like you wrote the book in it or something. I think that you simply could do with some to force the message home a bit, however instead of that, that is fantastic blog. A fantastic read. I’ll definitely be back.
