By now the world knows that the Los Angeles Lakers are the NBA Champions, beating the Orlando Magic 4 games to 1.
This is their 15th championship - Of course, that includes when they were known as the Minneapolis Lakers. But the Boston Celtics have 17 championships, so the Lakers still have a way to go to be at the very top of the statistics.
This was Coach Phil Jackson's 10th NBA Championship, which IS a record. He passed the legendary Red Auerbach for the most titles.
But, most importantly (at least to Kobe Bryant) is the fact that the Lakers won with a Kobe-led team instead of Shaquille O'Neal.
The Los Angeles Times had a Lakers Commemorative Section Monday, with some interesting blurbs about the team.
I have been a Lakers fan for many years, but that is probably not surprising since I live in Southern California. Today is the victory parade in Los Angeles - wish I could be there to celebrate with them!
