LA had the best player in the league (Kobe), a deeper bench, and a much better coach than Boston in Phil Jackson. Additionally, LA cruised to the finals while Boston struggled through 7 game series with Atlanta and Cleveland, and 6 with Detroit. Since Boston had an older team, most people thought the Celtics would be worn out. Also LA had I think the best record in the laague after getting Gasol and were leading the league in PPG. Oh, and Boston only won one game on the road coming in to the finals.

It wasn't out of the question to think all those factos would equal LA winning in 5 games.

Boston's advantages couldn't really be quantified. They had three unselfish stars who had never won a championship and came to Boston with one goal in mind. Also, there was no way in hell Gasol was guarding Garnett. European big men are soft. Give me some guy who grew up playing extremely physical street ball in the hood of Chicago over some European who learned how to play the position in space (IE, with no one in his face guarding him, not literally in space)
Do you actually watch basketball or is this just a bunch of stuff you heard on the radio?

Everything I heard/saw this season had Celtics winning it all. The East is the new West. It's obviously becoming a tougher division. Back like 4-8 seasons ago, the West was stronger without a doubt. The real competition was the Western Conference Finals. I mean, even last season this could be seen when the Spurs played the Cavs. I think if anyone was thinking that the Lakers were going to win the Championship, it's because they underestimated the competition in the East.

The East is the new West? Are you kidding? Three of the east playoff teams had records of .500 or below. The fourth seed in the east, Cleveland, wouldn't have even made the playoffs if they were in the west. The east is a subpar conference with two very good teams - Boston and Detroit. Same as it's been the last ten or so years

Everyone was predicting Boston to win at the beginning of the season. A lot of people changed their opinions when they Lakers got Gasol. I don't feel like looking up a bunch of columnists' playoff picks, but most picked LA to either win it all before the playoffs started or picked them when they reached the finals

I think it could happen! The East becoming a power house again. I think they are on their way. The Spurs are QUICKLY dying because they have no young talent. Phoenix? meh... Lakers? Nothing without Kobe.
