Epic Foes

Now that the Boston Celtics have defeated the Detroit Pistons, it is only fitting that they face their historic foe, the Los Angeles Lakers. Just as in Greek mythology, where heroes had to vanquish great enemies before being allowed to enter the pantheon, the Garnett-Pierce-Allen trio must defeat Kobe and the team from the West. To get us ready for this tremendous battle, I’m posting some links.

1. Randy Newman singing “I Love LA.”

2. 2 Pac and Dr. Dre performing “California Love.”

3. Cool J’s “Goin’ Back to Cali.”

4. Kevin McHale taking Kurt Rambis down in the 1984 Finals.
