As you wake up on this fine Thursday morning, you awake to find that the 2009 NBA Finals will be played by the Los Angeles Lakers and the Cleveland Cavaliers.

This news comes after the only threat to the Cavs, the Celtics, suffered an injury to their second best player and biggest defensive presence: Kevin Garnett.

There are no threats to the 2009 NBA champions the LA Lakers.

News broke out that he will not likely return to the team in time for the playoffs. Now, after the injury, the Celtics will struggle in the first round matchup against the Chicago Bulls, then probably have a second round exit against the Magic because of the trouble they will have with Dwight Howard.

The Celtics GM Danny Ainge suffered a heart attack this Thursday morning, probably soon after the hearing of the end of the Celtics championship chances for another decade or more. Ainge has been taken out of the hospital and is resting comfortably at home.

Ainge is expected to make a full recovery, but will be in the hospital the next few days and is expected to miss the Celtics opening round start against the Bulls on Saturday. 

The Celtics are the defending champions, but not for long.
