Boston Celtics: Kamenetzky Bros.

It seems like just 11 days ago we were trading emails with the Kamenetzky Brothers of ESPN Los Angeles' Land O'Lakers blog, previewing the first Celtics-Lakers clash since Game 7 of the NBA Finals. Now, like a kid whose birthday falls right after Christmas, we're wondering why the NBA couldn't have spread the fun out a little bit (and complaining about how cheap relatives spend a few extra bucks on the Christmas present and call it a combo gift).

Kobe seemed to simultaneously satisfy in one game the camp insisting he shoots too much and those who think the supporting cast isn’t clutch enough to step up.
