Oh what a choke!

I just finished watching the Lakers blow a 24-point lead over the Celtics in Game 4 of the 2008 NBA Finals.

How fantastic. Kobe just really went flat after the first half. I'm not quite sure if it was over-confidence that they had such a lead or just fantastic defense by Paul Pierce. Either way it clearly exposed that beyond Kobe the rest of the team is immature and doesn't have the guts to step up. Derek Fisher couldn't be found and at the end, the total collapse of any form of Laker defense just screwed them.

Good on ya', Celtics! Keep it up, your championship is just around the corner. 0 of 28 teams have come back from 3-1 down. Of course, your 24-point comeback also had never been done so don't get too cocky otherwise you could be on the receiving end of history as well.
