I'll be in Boston at the end of next week so I hesitate to make this public. But what the heck, the title has already given me away: I'm a Lakers fan, and I couldn't be happier with the matchup. Lakers/Celtics has almost become a tradition, kind of like the Dodgers and the Yankees.
But I'd like to make this post somehow Buddhist. So, in preparation for the game tonight, I suggest you read our 1994 interview with Phil Jackson here (granted, he was a Bull back then). And for good measure, take a look at our recent brief profile of onetime Lakers meditation coach George Mumford (you can find an earlier, full Tricycle interview with Mumford here).
I hope not long from now I can be as happy with the result as I am with the matchup. Throughout I'll work on my equanimity.
UPDATE: I don't speak for the entire staff (I've discovered).
