NBA Finals Game 7 Live Blog: Rajon Rondo Leads Celtics To 11-Point Lead

-Four quick halftime thoughts: it was nice of Magic Johnson to finally admit he couldn't make sense of a basketball game; it was fitting that everyone used the wrestling analogy for their analysis; we need more stories from Bill Walton in the future, even if the events he describes are kind of boring; and this Kobe legacy talk is boring, as expected. On the bright side, it was nice of Jon Barry to say the legacy won't change if Kobe wins "4, 5, or 7 championships" instead of "4, 6 or 8 championships" like he did in the pregame.

-It's a good thing the jerseys on the front say "Lakers" and "Celtics." If they instead said "Spurs" and "Nets," there would be more complaining. Or, more accurately, nobody would be watching

-Sorry, Kevin Durant, Kobe Bryant will get killed if he loses. 

-Honest question: what if Kendrick Perkins played tonight? Sure, the Lakers wouldn't dominate the glass like this, but they also would be more relaxed, because they would have known their opponent. Right now, they don't know their opponent, and they're freaking out.

-I am ashamed this happened.

-Why do the Celtics have a fetish for running guards named Allen into the post.

-Pau Gasol makes a weak move, a bad pass, doesn't get back, fronts Kevin Garnett for no reason and gives up a layup to Garnett. Rondo and Gasol are the barometer players, and Rondo is winning. 

-Speaking of Rondo, he just drove and hit a floater to give Boston a double-digit lead. Timeout LA. I'm amazed with how well Rondo has played tonight.
