I stand here today a changed man.

The Boston Celtics are one win away from their second NBA title in the last three seasons. (Say it again with me, friends.)

Kobe Bryant had his best game of The Finals and it still wasn’t good enough, thanks to some torrid shooting by the entire Celtics team. I won’t get into too much detail because BK1015 will break this one down later, but I just have to mention that wonderful speech from Zen Master/Lord of the Office Chair Phil Jackson during a timeout in the fourth quarter. Thanks for giving the C’s bulletin board material, pal. The series ends tomorrow night in Hollywood.
