NBA Sunday Showcase
As the football season comes to an end, the NBA takes over with a bang. Today, ABC will showcase an old rivalry, Lakers vs. Celtics, and show some Miami Heat. The Miami Heat take on the Oklahoma City Thunder at 1PM EST. The Boston Celtics go take on the LA Lakers 3:30PM EST. The Lakers-Celtics rivalry used to be between Magic and Bird, now its between Kobe and the ‘Big 3’. Check out Bird and Magic and highlights of different eras of the NBA on video!
“I haven’t really thought about it,” O’Neal said when asked if it will feel odd to hit Staples Center in the uniform of the Lakers’ greatest historical rival. “When I was with the Lakers, our rivals were the Spurs, the Kings. . . . I didn’t have the opportunity to be part of that rivalry with the Celtics. It’s starting to pick back up.”
