Kobe Bryant and the Lakers Want Celtics in Finals

Kobe Bryant and the Lakers Want Celtics in FinalsIf there’s one thing NBA fans love, it’s an old-fashioned rivalry.  After all the manufactured hype that preceded the Celtics-Lakers finals, it appears as if a real rivalry has developed.

Kobe Bryant and the Lakers are seeking revenge, and their preference is to see their bitter rivals, the Celtics, in the NBA Finals again in hopes of making amends for last season.

"Of course, [I want Boston]," Bryant said. "If you see a guy that you fought at lunchtime and he knocked you out, oh, I’m coming back the next day. I don’t want the little 4-foot guy. I want the big football player, that’s what I want."

Lamar Odom said, "You always want to play against the team you lost to. They’re a heck of a team. I would love to play against Boston, personally."Boston Globe
