Boston Decked Out for NBA Finals

Game 2 of the NBA Finals is tonight at the TD Banknorth Garden, and Boston (aka, Sports City USA) is showing its spirit. Assuming you aren't going to be getting tickets anytime soon to get into any of the games, you can still check out the Larry O'Brien trophy that is awarded to the winner--well, a giant, giant replica of the trophy at least. (By the way, I'm willing to bet no other sports championship trophy is named for a former Postmaster General of the United States.) It's perched atop the park at the northern end of the Rose Fitzgerald Kennedy Greenway, next to the Garden and above the overpass from which the cars emerge from the tunnels of the Big Dig onto the Zakim Bridge. While you won't be able to grasp the trophy in your hands, it gives you a great opportunity to be creative with your photos.

City Hall Plaza has been hosting NBA Nation, a traveling road show with basketball-related games and swag. That's wrapping up today, but the giant "Beat LA" T-shirt should be standing for a while longer.
