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.

Random NBA Players: Darius Miles (Ball Don't Lie) The internet is filled with hundreds of thousands of nostalgic tales, but that’s to be expected. As a wise man once said, “Nostalgia is a mild form of depression,” and everyone can get a little blue when thinking back to 1997. With the summer sun shining, however, we’re in a cheery mood. And with the NBA having settled down after a busy first few weeks of offseason transactions, we thought it best to highlight some random NBA players who may have done their best work a decade or two ago. This isn’t a list of your “Top 12 File Sharing Services of 2002” or “27 Ways Britney Ruled the VMAs.” No, this is … Random Players, NBA Edition We continue with Darius Miles. By 2000, the NBA was ready for 18-year olds to move the needle. [ Follow Dunks Don't Lie on Tumblr: The best slams from all of basketball ] Kobe Bryant, by then just 21 but already coming off of his fourth season, had just been the tipping force in an NBA Finals victory for the Los Angeles Lakers. Kevin Garnett, by then, had been a three-time All-Star while acting as the biggest reason for an extended battle between labor and team owners. Tracy McGrady, barely a starter even in his third season, was about to receive a max contract after a fierce free agent bidding war. The Indiana Pacers, coming off of the team’s first NBA Finals appearance, were about to deal for Jermaine O’Neal to act as the team’s go-to two-way force. Each of these players skipped college for the pros, and heading into the 2000 NBA draft very few had reason to believe that Darius Miles wasn’t going to join this new wave. Even if his time at East St. Louis High hadn’t earned him the sort of plaudits that Garnett, Bryant, and McGrady earned in their high school careers. Even if some of the rumors emanating him from individual team workouts (there was chatter that Miles appeared clueless and even physically limited during some of the most rudimentary drills) weren’t exactly promising. The Los Angeles Clippers, widely regarded as the worst franchise in sports, selected him third overall. It was the highest a prep star had ever gone in the NBA draft, bettering Garnett by two spots. Almost immediately, Miles became a martyr. Charles Barkley, in his second-ever appearance as a TNT employee, lit into the Clipper organization, lamenting the fact that the Clippers routinely made money while losing heaps of games and letting their best players run off in free agency, telling the Turner crew that “people assume that every organization is trying to win, and there's just no excuse for what the Clippers have been doing” and that “I don’t think the Clippers are a good environment for Miles.” He may … he may have been right. This isn’t to say the Clippers overreached. The 2000 draft is, at the very best, the second-worst draft in NBA history, so it isn’t as if the Clippers were wrong in selecting an 18-year old with huge hands, huge wingspan, a 6-9 frame, obvious handle and massive hops in Darius. Orlando, settling into its rebuilding project, wanted Miles and outlined a trade that offered up the fifth pick (presumed to be Marcus Fizer), Corey Maggette, and the tenth overall selection later in the round – a pick that turned into Rookie of the Year Mike Miller. The Magic were out to cut salary as they chased down Tim Duncan, Grant Hill and McGrady in free agency, to be sure, but they did want Darius. Whether Los Angeles general manager Elgin Baylor was picking on Orlando’s behalf has been up for conjecture for 15 years, but the potential deal was scuttled when Bulls GM Jerry Krause (only out to ruin things, with Elton Brand already at power forward for Chicago) selected Fizer at No. 4 in the hopes that he would receive a similar offer. The Clippers would be stuck with Miles, Krause received no offers and Chicago continued to stink, while Orlando missed out on Duncan, signed a broken Hill and wasted McGrady’s prime years. The whole night should have acted as an omen. Any omen would seemingly be doubled-down upon when autumn showed up. Not only did Miles make the cover of Sports Illustrated’s season preview, he was pictured alongside Kevin Garnett in seemingly the final pose KG ever made without mean-mugging:
