2010 NBA Finals Game 7: Los Angeles Lakers & Boston Celtics Matchups

It has been quite some time since the NBA Finals has been this competitive and intriguing.

What better way for it to end than with a Game 7?

It’s a dream come true.

The Lakers versus the Celtics. These two are long-time enemies that make one of the best rivalries of all-time. My apologies to the Yankees and Red Sox, but these two titans take the bitter hate to a whole new level.

What better matchup could NBA fans ask for on the biggest stage?

With the exception of a couple games, the series has been close and both teams have been able to impose their will at some point. No one can expect Game 7 to be anything like Game 6, as both teams will break out their A games to take home the title.

This championship will come down to the starting fives.

Sorry bench guys, but your minutes will be trimmed, as Phil Jackson and Doc Rivers will want their top guys on the court as much as possible.

Here is the blueprint of what each starter must do to get their matchup in their favor. Whichever squad gets more of their impact players involved and active will take home the Larry O’Brien Trophy.

That’s a guarantee.
