Celtics do have class
I have watched the Lakers/ Celtic rivalry for 50+ years. Might be the biggest rivalry in sports imo.
And then there's this:
_The Boston Celtics will play the Los Angeles Lakers at the Staples Center on Feb. 23, but it seems they will stick around for at least another day.
Adam Himmelsbach of the Boston Globe reported the Celtics have pushed back their Feb. 24 flight so as to allow players and staff to attend Kobe Bryant’s memorial, which will be held that same day: The Celtics and Lakers will do battle that Sunday, but they will put aside their differences to honor one of the greatest players in NBA history on Monday._
Like the article says, "some things are much bigger than basketball."
