Los Angeles Lakers beat Orlando Magic 99 – 86 to win the 2009 NBA Championship…In Orlando. Phil Jackson broke Red Auerbach’s record for most championships by winning his 10th NBA Title.

“Odom scored 17 points, Ariza had 15, Gasol 14 and 15 rebounds, and Fisher, whose two big 3s in Game 4 saved L.A., had 13 points.
It took longer than Bryant expected, but he has stepped from O’Neal’s enormous shadow — at last.
Bryant averaged 32.4 points, 7.4 assists, 5.6 rebounds and more than a dozen cold-blooded glares per game. He wasn’t out to make friends in these finals, he was out for redemption. Throughout the playoffs, he didn’t smile. He just snarled and bared his teeth!”
