With the new acquisition of Dwight Howard to the Lakers, it got me thinking. Are the Lakers the new Jones's? After so many years of our proud Celtics dominating the league and feeling like the Jones's ourselves, are times changing? Or have times already changed and we don't want to admit it? As we all know we lead the Championship chase 17 to 16. But the Celtics had a 22 year gap between their last two titles. In that 22 year gap the Lakers won 5 Championships and since our last in 2008 the Lakers have won 2 more, one of which was very controversial but counts regardless. Looking at the last twenty years, it looks like times have changed a long time ago. So in this new era where players seem to prefer the warm weather and bright lights that LA has to offer, are we just trying to keep up with LA now? If so, how do we do so? Is it only a matter of time before the Lakers lead the banner count? God help us. So as LA seems to rack up one star player after another, I ask you, how do we continue to compete with that?
I continue to have faith, but do you?
