The World Series of basketball
by The Daily Vidette
Jan 01, 2010
“The 2009 NBA playoff series between the Bulls and the Celtics series was truly one for the ages.
It had everything - great plays, last-second shots, individual heroics, brawls, controversial calls.
Not to mention the overtimes. The teams played as many extra periods - seven - as games in the series, including the triple overtime thriller in Game 6.”
