Steve Ballmer: Clippers have bigger fish to fry than Lakers

NBA fans are well aware of the history that exists between the Celtics and Lakers, two historic franchises, but the "30 for 30" figures to show how their NBA Finals matchups in the 1980s helped increase the popularity of the league and influence pop culture.

Though, it should be mentioned that in the weeks leading up to the NBA Draft, there's an terrible lot of smoke thrown around in order to throw prospects or other teams off.

It's also a flawless segue to the much-anticipated 30 for 30 documentary on what might be the NBA's most famous rivalry - the Boston Celtics vs the Los Angeles Lakers.

Meanwhile, the Lakers could package second-year point guard in a potential Paul George trade this offseason.

19 Feb 1988: Guard Larry Bird of the Boston Celtics shoots the ball as Magic Johnson of the Los Angeles Lakers shoots the ball during a game at the Great Western Forum in Inglewood, California. Its stars are legends: Wilt Chamberlain, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Magic Johnson, Shaquille O'Neal and, of course, Kobe Bryant. It's to beat 29 other teams.

"So in a sense, the best way to beat the Lakers is also to be the No. 1 team in the world and that's what we're aspiring to do". Let's just face it. "While some of the Celtics-Lakers story has been chronicled before, we hope to bring to our production the experience of going through it from a visceral and highly partisan standpoint". But in the world of sports it's, "What did you do this season?' And all we can control is how we do this season, next game, next game, and I'm proud of what we're doing".




Meanwhile, the Lakers haven't won more than 27 games in the last four seasons. So their fans aren't exactly insane to be both loyal and proud.

The documentary will also take a unique approach in having two narrators - Ice Cube representing the Lakers and Donnie Wahlberg for the Celtics. But he did tell us, "We like our players".

But as long as those around the teams continue talking about it, I guess we can keep writing about it.

It's unclear what the Lakers are trying to get back for the guard who turns 25 later this month.

And as for who he's rooting for in the Finals, he admits he'd rather see the Cleveland Cavaliers win over the Warriors, given that the Warriors are the biggest nemesis in the Clippers' Pacific division.
