The back-to-back champs beat a gritty Celtics team to win Game 7 of the NBA Finals 83-79. Kobe struggled, but found other ways to lead his team to the win. Pau Gasol was quiet at the start, but took control of the paint late in the game. D-Fish hit a big 3-pointer like clockwork. And, perhaps the most unlikely hero of them all, Ron Artest was the most consistent Laker from start to finish. His 3-pointer late in the fourth quarter sealed the deal. . . his post game comments and interview capped the entertainment value of a tremendous Finals showdown.
In the end, it was a total team effort. A sweet victory for your 2009-2010 NBA Champions: The Los Angeles Lakers!
