Celtics in a Rout!

There are a multitude of articles available on the Celtics big win over the Lakers, but as usual, Michael Wilbon is a cut above the norm. He describes the Celtics return to glory with elegant style and places Paul Pierce amongst the best of the best by saying, "The Lakers' biggest problem is that they, like the Hawks and Cavaliers and Pistons before them, had no solution for Pierce, who by leading this particular franchise to a championship in such a decisive way took a spot alongside Larry Bird, John Havlicek, Dave Cowens, Bill Russell and Bob Cousy as leaders of basketball's royal franchise." That is some praise!
