Celtics vs. Lakers: The 80's Re-lived...But with a Twist

Shawn OwensAnalyst IJune 3, 2008

It looks as though we are going to re-live the 80's.  Let's hope that the music doesn't come back with the series.

The twist, although everyone loves to talk about Bird and Magic and their supporting casts, is that this series is going to be about game planning and match-ups.  The starting five on both clubs will be pawns in this series. 

It will be who can control the scorers the best that will win this match-up.

Also be on the look out for how the benches play.  This is where we will see the championship won in the series.
