Market Overview News: LA Lakers, Boston Celtics to Meet at TD Garden


(EMAILWIRE.COM, October 30, 2012 ) Boston, MAThe Los Angeles Lakers and Boston Celtics are scheduled to meet for the first time for the new NBA season at TD Garden in Boston, Massachusetts, on February 7, 2013, Thursday, at 8:00 p.m. Tickets are currently selling fast as fans want to see once again how two of the biggest competitors in the National Basketball Association battle it out, especially since Lakers may not have one of its powerful players, Kobe Bryant.

Though Lakers has some of the most well-known aggressive power players in the NBA, they also have a lot of old ones, such as Pau Gasol, who is already 32 years old and Steve Nash, who is nearing 40 years. Kobe Bryant, an incredible shooting guard and an MVP, is around 34 years old. This means with their age they are more prone to injuries, and they may have to take a backseat for a couple of games.

In this new season of the NBA, it could be that Bryant may not be visible. In fact, he may not be allowed to play the entire campaign in order to reduce the chances of suffering from serious injuries.

Nevertheless, the team is confident that they are going to pull through, which a lot of NBA pundits also agree. Despite the potential temporary loss of Byrant, the LA Lakers still have some of their gems including Dwight Howard, who is one of the youngest at 26, Metta World Peace, and Pau Gasol. Of course, Steve Nash will also be active in the games. That leaves the team with 4 more excellent players.

Moreover, the fans of both Celtics and Lakers will concentrate more on the game play than on whos missing. The rivalry between these two camps has been going on for years, having met in the Finals for more than 10 times since 1959. The smashing, adrenaline-pumping games they have come up with make them one of the best rivalries in NBA history.

The Los Angeles Lakers plays for the Western Conference, forming part of the Pacific Division. When at their home court, they play in Staples Center. Since the teams creation, theyve already won more than 15 championship titles, making them one of the most successful, if not the biggest, NBA franchises in history. The team has also produced world-renowned basketball players such as Wilt Chamberlain (who also played in Harlem Globetrotters), Magic Johnson, Gail Goodrich, Jerry West, and Kareem Abdul-Jabbar.

Today the team includes Antawn Jamison, Steve Blake, Chris Duhon, Robert Sacre, Devin Ebanks, and Darius Johnson-Odom. Mike Brown serves as their head coach.
