LAKERS VS CELTICS
The Los Angeles Lakers and the Boston Celtics have a rivalry that dates back to the NBA Finals of 1959, thirteen years after both the Lakers and the Celtics were founded. The Lakers and the Celtics have faced each other in the NBA Finals twelve times. In the decade from 1959 to 1969 the teams met at the Finals seven times and in the 1980's another three. During the 1960's both teams dominated the NBA. The Celtics featured some of the best players in the world at that time; Bill Russell and Bob Cousy and for the Lakers they had Elgin Baylor and Jerry West.
During the 1970's the NBA in general and as a whole came to an economic screeching halt. The NBA was down in popularity, attendance was low and the image of the NBA at that time was that of "an all black league with a bunch of guys who did drugs". In the 1980's however, two things happened to the NBA; Magic Johnson and Larry Bird. Bird played for the Celtics and Magic for the Lakers and both men would see each other at all three Finals against one another. The Boston Celtics vs. Los Angeles Lakers rivalry, and especially the personal rivalry between Bird and Magic, served to boost the image of the NBA and to the success of each team.
During the 1980's the Celtics-Lakers rivalry began to be known as the East Coast versus West Coast of basketball, working class grit vs Hollywood glitz, old tradition versus air-conditioned luxury, and white versus black. Fans clung to these pseudonyms for the Lakers vs Celtics and the two teams took on a life of their own against one another. The NBA did not only revive in popularity, it soon became on of the most popular sports leagues in the world.
After Magic Johnson and Larry Bird each retired, the Celtics-Lakers competition calmed down a bit. In the 1990's the NBA became overshadowed by Michael Jordon of the Chicago Bulls. The Lakers made a come back again in 2000 and onward after striking gold on Shaquille O' Neal and Kobe Bryant. The Celtics made their comeback in the last half decade especially. Current mega-star Kevin Garnett, Ray Allen, Paul Pierce, Kendrick Perkins, and Rajon Rondo on the Celtics have kept the mega streak of 2005, 2008, 2009 and now 2010 going of the Celtics earning Division titles.
The Lakers main stars now include Ron Artest, who last year famously argued with Kobe Bryand on court, as well as Kobe Bryant, Andrew Bynum, Pau Gasol, and Derek Fisher. The Lakers were the 2009 NBA Champions. In 2008 they lost to the Celtics and in 2009 they beat the Orlando Magic. Now the Lakers are getting ready to face the Celtics again for what has been a very competitive decade between the two teams again.

Los Angeles Lakers News
The Philadelphia 76ers, shockingly, are reportedly against a proposed revamp of the NBA lottery (Ball Don't Lie) The argument against NBA teams tanking games is tired and silly. For decades, pro squads have given up on entire seasons in order to develop young talent and secure high-end draft picks, but it wasn’t until 2013-14 the hyperdrive media and those who tend to fall in lockstep with their favorite TV/radio shows and/or writers started to kvetch about things.
Recently, Grantland’s Zach Lowe broke the news about the league considering a percentage-based variation on determining draft lottery odds. We strongly discouraged the league to pass on the idea , and we weren’t alone.
The Philadelphia 76ers – the squad that lost 26 straight games last season while sitting out its top draft pick, a franchise that may sit out its current top draft pick for most or not all of 2014-15 – are also strongly objecting to the idea.
Thanks a lot, Sixers. Way to tramp down the clichés and play against role. From Brian Windhorst at ESPN :
The NBA is pushing toward changes to the draft lottery system by next season but is facing a strong objection from the Philadelphia 76ers, the franchise that could suffer the most from it, multiple sources told ESPN.com.
The rough draft of this plan was met with opposition by 76ers management, which is in the midst of a multiseason rebuilding project that is dependent on a high pick next year. The 76ers, sources said, are hoping to get the NBA to delay the plan's implementation for at least a year because it would act as a de facto punishment while just playing by the rules that have been in place.
The 76ers, however, may struggle to gain support from Silver or fellow teams for holding off on the changes. Philadelphia's planned sink to the bottom has caused a drag on revenues in one of the league's largest markets and has upset some other teams, sources said.
The Sixers want the NBA to pass on preventing them from doing the best possible job they can to improve their franchise. This is essentially what this boils down to.
The 76ers will lose again in 2014-15, possibly more often than they did in 2013-14, when the lottery “rewarded” them with the third overall pick. Philadelphia will then enter the 2015 offseason with two of the best young big men in the game, the 2014 Rookie of the Year, another high-end lottery pick, a coveted stashed prospect still developing overseas and a massive amount of cap space.
Philadelphia is taking a year off, because after years of trying to overpay overrated talent under various personnel bosses including Billy King, Rod Thorn, Ed Stefanski and Doug Collins, the 76ers are rebuilding the right way. And sometimes “the right way” takes two seasons.
Compare this Sixers setup with what we’ve seen in recent years in Dallas and with the Los Angeles Lakers. Those Lakers just signed Carlos freakin’ Boozer. They just signed Jordan Hill to a contract that nears eight figures per year, one they will no doubt decline the second year of the deal. They could waive Steve Nash, but don’t want a portion of his contract carrying over into the 2015 and '16 offseason. The team just took on a draft pick for the right to pay Jeremy Lin $14 million in actual payroll this season, and unless Linsanity breaks out in Pacific Time this season he most certainly won’t be around past 2015.
Dallas? The Mavericks let their starting center go in the offseason following their 2011 championship, and he went on to win the Defensive Player of the Year award in 2011-12. Dallas did nothing but hire a series of rentals in the 2011 and 2012 offseasons, only diving in to dole out multiyear deals in 2013. It punted away two years of Dirk Nowitzki’s near-prime in order to hoard cap flexibility for the following summer, knowing full well the peak output of the team it was creating would be 45 wins or so at best.
What about Orlando, dismantling a division winner in 1999 in anticipation of the next offseason? What about when Seattle decided it didn’t want to pair Ray Allen and Rashard Lewis with Kevin Durant in 2007? What about Jerry Krause, rolling over cap flexibility in both 1999 offseasons (there were two, technically), and in 2000?
And in 2001?
And in 2002?
What about this?
