Woo Hoo Lakers!

06-17-09a.jpg

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!

Congrats to the Lakers and all Lakers fans! I'm not a big NBA fan anymore but I do love Phil Jackson from the days when he was MJ's coach. Glad he broke that record.

Hi Nancy, woo hoo is right! :) I'm glad that the Lakers won too and Phil Jackson's accomplishments will be very hard to match.

G'day! You asked about my cappuccino maker - I added a bit to the post for you. :)
