A great tip from my friend Jeff "The Hawkeye" Fellenzer: Did you notice in the montage of photos on the first page, bottom left photo, of the series coverage in this week's Sports Illustrated, that Celtics players in the early '60s apparently wore road jerseys with either "Boston" or "Celtics" on them at the same time? Sanders' jersey says "Boston," Russell's says "Celtics." Typical Russ...his own man. I'd never noticed that before, or remembered it. A uniform that wasn't, well, uniform!
If anyone has a digital image, please email firstname.lastname@example.org. Thanks.
Great footage from Lakers-Celtics finals past.
Let the games begin. Prediction: Lakers in 7 games. And I'll take 7 overtimes.
