Both the Lakers and Celtics have quite the history.Not
only do they account for almost half of the championships
in NBA history (75) between the two of them (34), some of
the greatest players the league has ever seen have suited
up for the Lakers and Celtics at some point in their
careers.To name a few: LeBron James, Larry Bird, Kobe
Bryant, Bill Ru sell, Shaquille O'Neal, Kevin Garnett,
Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Kevin McHale, Magic
Johnson ... the list goes on.Ahead of the second and
final matchup between the Lakers and Celtics in the 2021-
22 NBA season, two members of The Sporting News' staff
had a go at building an all-time team for each franchise.
The rules: LeBron James served as team captain of the
Lakers while Jayson Tatum served as captain of the
Celtics. Both teams included a starting five, plus a
sixth man.Which team would win in a hypothetical matchup?

Phil JacksonI mean,you can't really go wrong here. We're
talking about some of the most iconic players in NBA
history.For me, two picks were no-brainers: Magic and
Kobe. Magic made everyone around him better with his
incredible court vision, and he could legitimately play
every position on the court. (This is your reminder that
he once ... in the NBA Finals ...finishing with 42
points, 15 rebounds and seven a sists ... as a
rookie.)Kobe's resume speaks for itself he's one of the
greatest scorers ever, a guy who once scored 81 points in
a game.Few players will ever touch his five championships
and twoFinals MVPs.Who should start at small forward
wasn't easy. Baylor and James Worthy both have a strong
case, but I gave Baylor the edge. 10 All-NBA selections
.Last but not least, thetoughest call of them all:
Kareem, Shaq or Wilt at center. Ultimately, Kareem was a
Laker much longer than both Shaq and Wilt, and he racked
up quite the accolades during his time in purple and
gold, including a handful of championships, three MVP
awards, and a whole lot of All-NBA and All-Defensive
selections.With how much ball-handling, playmaking and
versatility that Magic, Kobe, Baylor and LeBron offer, I
feel good about turning Shaq into the scariest sixth man
in NBA history. Apologies to the logo himself, Jerry
West, who would've made the cut otherwise.The result? An
all-time team no other franchise can match not even the
Celtics. Scott Rafferty ()Boston Celtics PG:Sam

not going to lie, I snickered to myself quite a bit ahead
of this draft. Scott decided to take the Lakers, and
I know deep down inside he thought he'd have an easier
time putting a team together than I would, but he has way
tougher decisions to make than I did.If you knew Scottas
I do, you'd be laughing too.Alright, onto my all-time
Celtics team. With Tatum already on my team, I went with
the obvious choice ofBird. You can't really have an all-
time Celtics team without Bird.At center, I went with the
greatest Celtic of all time ( I
didn't stutter) inRu sell. Again, there was no real
debate as to who I'd go with there.Guards were a little
bit tricky, but I ended up with Jones and Havlicek. Both
are probably more shooting guards than point guards but
that's OK our coach, Red Auerbach, would figure out a way
to keep the rock moving.Finally, I went with Garnett as
my sixth man.This was by far the hardest choice. I
thought about Kevin McHale, Paul Pierce, Robert Parish
and Bob Cousy but ultimately decided on Garnett. With all
the Lakers great big men Scott could pull from, I'd
rather shore up my defense in the event he decided to
roll a lineup with Kareem and Wilt or Shaq and Kareem out
there.If you're trying to imagine what things would look
like if these two fictional rosters would match up in
a seven-game series, let me help you Boston would win.
Listen, that is not me being biased. I'm just going based
on history.The Lakers and Celtics have played each other
a record 12 times in the NBA Finals.Boston has won nine
of those series.Celtics vs Lakers in the NBA
