Game Seven Stats

So we've got a game seven in the NBA Finals.  With the exception of Celtics fans, most of us are pretty happy about that.  Tomorrow night's game should be one for the ages.

We wondered how many NBA Finals have gone to seven games, and in those games, how often has the road team pulled off the upset.  Here's what we found (home team in bold):

1950 - 51  Royals over Knicks

1951 - 52 Lakers over Knicks

1953 - 54 Lakers over Nationals

1954 - 55 Nationals over Pistons

1956 - 57 Celtics over Hawks

1959 - 60 Celtics over Hawks

1961 - 62 Celtics over Lakers

1965 - 66 Celtics over Lakers

1968 - 69 Celtics over Lakers

1969 - 70 Knicks over Lakers

1973 - 74 Celtics over Bucks

1977 - 78 Bullets over Sonics

1983 - 84 Celtics over Lakers

1987 - 88 Lakers over Pistons

1993 - 94 Rockets over Knicks

2004 - 05 Spurs over Pistons

So to summarize, there have been 16 game sevens in the history of the NBA Finals.  Of those 16 games, the road team has only won 3 times.

So how are you feeling Celtics fans?  Can the guys in green beat the odds tomorrow night?  It happened once, in 1969, can it happen again?

This Date in History: Lakers Over Celtics

Twenty three years ago, on this date the Lakers would win the NBA Finals over the Boston Celtics in six games defeating them 4-2. This would be the tenth time that the Celtics and Lakers would meet in the NBA finals. The Lakers were awarded home court advantage for finishing the season with a 65-17 record. With multiple lead changes in the final seconds and Magic Johnson's sky hook, Game 4 shaped up as one of the most exciting games in NBA Finals history. The Celtics would not make another appearance in the NBA Finals until 2008, meeting again with the Lakers. Below is the top ten greatest moments from the 1987 NBA Finals.


The 2010 NBA Finals marks the twelfth time that these two teams will meet to compete to be the champions. Out of the last eleven times that these two teams have battled it out for the title the Celtics have emerged victorious nine times. The Lakers would only win in the 1984-85 and 1986-87 seasons.

Who do you think will take the title this year?

Coming Soon, Purple and Gold

A lot of our spring apparel will be delivering soon so we're currently getting in lots of prototypes and samples which we are happy to share with you.

Earlier this week we got some Lakers jersey samples that we're pretty excited about.

First up, we've got the 1984 - 85 NBA Champions.  This was the season when the Lakers finally beat their rivals, the Boston Celtics, in a 6 game series.  Which remeinds us, if you haven't watched Magic & Bird: A Courtship of Rivals on HBO you should.  We highly recommend it.  Anyway, back to the Lakers jersey.  No, you're not seeing things, that is a James Worthy jersey that you're looking at.  We've been getting requests for him for awhile now and we're happy to finally be able to make this one.  Of course we're offering Magic too.  Look for these in time for the Lakers next Championship run.

The next Lakers jersey is one that we've made before but we've been out of for awhile.  It's the 1996 - 97 Kobe Bryant.  This was Kobe's rookie year and it was also the year that the league celebrated their 50th Anniversary.  That's why the logo man is gold on this jersey.  This one will also be available during the playoffs.

Look for more sample images soon!
