Funny things about the Celtics winning their 17th title in franchise history:

So NOW Paul Pierce is a Celtic legend?!?! The guy carried the franchise for a decade, yet it seems that now he's appreciated not just throughout the country, but in New England.

Danny Ainge winnng Executive of the Year is a bit odd. Luck and a long-lasting friendship with Kevin McHale shouldn't be reasons to be given the award.

Thrilled for Pierce, Ray Allen and Kevin Garnett. Absolutely thrilled. P.J. Brown... not so much. Some fires won't ever be put out ;).

I kid. Congrats.

It may seem crazy, but Rajon Rondo has a game similar to Tony Parker, except that the jumpshot isn't there just yet.

As for the Lake Show: as one of the Boston-area commentors mentioned on a ESPN Conversation board, this is nice right now, but the Lakers will have their day. Don't doubt that for a second.

The best team in the league all season long was outplayed in every game by a team that never strayed from their game plan. Will they figure that out in November remains to be seen.

Kobe is going to single-handedly destroy the PLANET in Beijing.

Finally, no matter what, ESPN/ABC must do everything possible to keep their lead broadcast team of Mike Breen, Mark Jackson and Jeff Van Gundy together.
