Lakers attempt to reinvigorate Boston rivalry with Celtics logo on trash can
It seems that the Los Angeles Lakers, with the addition of Lebron James, truly believe the old Lakers-Celtics rivalry is back. They even went so far as to promote the March 9, 2019 contest with some gutter humor - placing the sacred Celtics logo on a trash can.
Always one to think outside the can - er, box - I view the perverted attempt to minimize the Celtics strength in such a match-up as backfiring. A close look shows the Lakers literally at the bottom of the barrel, well below the Celtics. The Lakers obvious attempt at combining advertising with symbolism seems to have failed.
