Kobe & The Lakers win the 2010 NBA Championship in 7 games over the Boston Celtics! Final score 83-79! Kobe claims his 5th NBA title; Coach Phil Jackson claims his 11th & the Lakers franchise get their 16th title!

Kobe Bryant cemented his legacy in Lakers history by winning his 5th championship for the franchise.  In a highly contested back and forth game, the Los Angeles Lakers outlasted the Boston Celtics 83-79 to claim the 2010 NBA Championship, 2nd straight and their 16th title in franchise history.

The Boston Celtics played a hard fought game but simply didn’t have enough to make good of the 13-point lead they had mid-way through the third quater.  All of the Celtics starters played more than 40 mins in this game and all scored in double figures but there just wasn’t enough left in the tank to win the game.

In the 4th quarter Kobe Bryant and his teammates seized the opportunity and came back to win the game with a total team contribution even though Kobe struggled for most of the game.  Ron Artest saved the best for the final game of the series scoring 20 pts and recording 5 steals. Another Laker who hugely contributed in the win was Spaniard Pau Gasol who scored 19 points and grabbed 18 rebounds.

Kobe claimed the finals MVP trophy and when asked about how did it feel to win another title, he responded with “Just got one more than Shaq. You can take that to the bank. You know how I am. I don’t forget anything.”

Even though I’m not a fan of Kobe or the Lakers, congrats to their fans, players and team for claiming the 2010 NBA Championship.
