Here it is, folks. The moment of truth, where players are made: Game 7.

This series, which is potentially one of the most scintillating of
all-time, has provided us with a countless number of unforgettable
moments and finishes. Both the Bulls and Celtics have left it all out
on the floor in each and every outing, and the battles have gotten so
heated that seven accumulative overtimes have transpired throughout the
first six games of the series.

As disappointing as half of the outcomes have been, watching this
series as a basketball fan as opposed to a Celtics fan has been pure
ecstasy. With that in mind, ecstasy can be deadly. Let's hope the
defending champs can pull through and keep their season alive past the
first round.
