Jess Camerato reminds us that 24 years ago tonight, the now famous "Beat LA" chant was born.
the Celtics in Game 7 of the Eastern Conference Finals. Rather than
cheer against the victors, the Garden crowd bellowed “Beat L.A.” as
encouragement for the Sixers to defeat the Lakers in the championship
Let that be a little history lesson to the new Celtics fans in the house. This is how much we hate LA. I don't care who you are. If you're playing the Lakers, then we want you to beat 'em.
And THAT'S why we did the whole Issel's Army thing. For those of you Nuggets fans that want to express "Beat LA" in shirt form… you can still order one of ours now, and get it before the series is over.
