Celtics - Lakers anyone still feeling that feeling ?

Just stumbled across a funny article on ESPN about finding L.A. area "Celtic haters"...
Some pretty funny quotes by celebs, players and regular folk like us (just from the wrong coast) about the existing hatred of the Celtics in Los Angeles.

For those of us who were fortunate to live through the 80s basketball heyday in Boston
as Celtics fans there is certainly as much animosity still felt for them.
Here is the link and a nice youtube flashback reminder ..

Take this... Mr Lakers Assistant Coach / horned rimmed jackass**

**I think Bill Simmons touched on this in one of his recent articles about how James Worthy shoved Rambis out of bounds to prevent retaliation, but while watching it repeatedly what struck me as more bizarre than knocking your own teammate down, was Bird actually helping Rambis back to his feet... so much for thinking that it was "old school ball" back then.

Dude - love seeing your post on BigP. Welcome to the show! Watching the video now. BTW, did you watch last night's game? I was an idiot and went to bed at halftime. I was so frustrated that the Celts just couldn't get anything to fall, I didn't see a comeback in the works. Oh well! ;)
