  What Do You Get the Franchise That Has Everything

The Los Angeles Lakers won their 16th NBA Championship on Thursday night by beating the Boston Celtics 83-79. It wasn’t the type of game that people were expecting. The game was very defensive and the refs were really weren’t calling too many fouls and were letting the defenses get away with being physical.

Many of the Lakers key players didn’t shoot well in the game, most notably Kobe Bryant who only shot 6 for 24 from the field. But they were able to hang around early with their ability to get offensive rebounds, having 23 in the game compared to only 8 for Boston. Ron Artest really bailed them out with 12 points in the 2nd quarter while most of the Lakers were really struggling from the field.

The Celtics had their share of struggles from the field as well. Paul Pierce was only 5 of 15 and Ray Allen was only 3 for 14. However, the Celtics still managed to lead the game most of the way. They led by as many as 13 during the 3rd quarter. But, the Lakers chipped away from there and dominated the 4th quarter.

The win gives Phil Jackson his 11th Championship as a coach and Kobe Bryant his 5th as a player. If Phil Jackson decides not to retire he can attempt an unparalleled feat, trying to get his 4th 3-peat.
