Last night the LA Lakers beat the Boston Celtics 83-79 in a close Game 7 matchup. It is the sixteenth championship the Lakers have won, not to mention a back-to-back title. Kobe Bryant took home his second straight Finals MVP, but Lakers coach Phil Jackson, who won his 11th title, said the MVP of the night went to Ron Artest. Artest helped the Lakers come back from a 13-point deficit and scored 20 pts.
The night was not just about the players but the jersey chasers too! Lamar Odom’s wife, Khloe Kardashian took to her blog saying:
“When the team was presented with their Championship t-shirts, hats and trophy, I was literally bursting with pride. I even cried of happiness. Seeing that huge smile on Lamar’s face seriously melted me — I will never forget that moment! It’s embedded in my mind forever and I am so grateful for this experience. The people, the confetti, the screams, the tears of joy! Such an amazing feeling.”
