Championship Kicks: Lacing Em’ up in the NBA Finals

For the 12th time (second in three years) in their richly storied rivalry, the Los Angeles Lakers and Boston Celtics will play for the NBA championship.  Just two years ago, the Celtics humiliated the Lakers in Game 6 to clinch their franchise’s 17th title on their home floor by blowing out Kobe Bryan’ts squad by 39 points.  With the bitter taste of total defeat in 2008 still lingering on their palates, the 2010 Lakers are looking to exact revenge on the C’s and silence all of their critics who still view them as too soft to defeat their arch nemesis.  The last two NBA champs will begin what is sure to be a historic series of epic proportions tonight at 9pm Eastern/6pm Pacific.  To get everyone fully prepared, let’s take a look at the starting five kicks for each team!
