The NBA Finals are going to be pretty exciting, now that it is determined that the Lakers and the Celtics will be playing. When I was younger I grew up with the Lakers and Celtics competing against one another. The old school lineup for the Celtics had Larry Bird, Robert Parrish, Kevin McHale, Danny Ainge, and Dennis Johnson. For the Lakers, they had, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Magic Johnson, James Worthy, Byron Scott, and Michael Cooper. The list goes on and on. They were both great dynasties.

But the great match up was against Larry Bird and Magic Johnson. They will definitely go down as one of the best rivalries in sports. It started back in the 1979 NCAA Championship game against Magic’s Michigan State University team and Bird’s Indiana State team. And as they say, “the rest is history.”

Now with the NBA Finals against the Lakers and Celtics again, it is conjuring up some great memories of old. It is going to be awesome!

Also, the Cubbies are on a 6-game winning streak and they are in first place in the National League Central Division. Hmm… can this be the year?!
