The power of three
Turns out, the Lakers aren’t dead yet.
Doesn’t mean they’ll win the series, though.
The Celtics are still my favorite to win the NBA Finals. I picked them during the first round, and I’m sticking with them even after the Lakers won Game 3 on Tuesday.
Here’s why: the power of three.
There are lots of ways to build successful basketball teams, but the best formula for winning a championship is having three go-to players. The Celtics have Paul Pierce, Kevin Garnett and Ray Allen. Sure, the Lakers have Kobe Bryant, one of the best players to ever walk planet earth, and Pau Gasol, one of the nicest gifts to ever be given from one NBA team to another, but they don’t have that third star.
Lamar Odom has moments when he’s great, but he’s still too sporadic to be considered a go-to player. Derek Fisher is a nice player and an even nicer person, but he doesn’t have that go-to quality either.
The Celtics have three legitimate stars, which takes pressure off of them and puts it squarely on opponents.
