BOSTON, MA From CNNSi (By: Tom Pace, Talk of the Town) NBA FINALS UPDATE: 11:45pm 6-17-08  The Celtics literally wiped the parquet floor with the Lakers, 131-92, to win their 17th NBA title.  As the AP reported on CNNSi: "After 22 long years, the NBA has gone green."

Carried by ear-splitting chants of ''Beat L.A.'' early and cries of ''Seven-teen'' in the closing seconds by their adoring crowd, which included Boston legends Bill Russell and John Havlicek, the Celtics concluded a shocking rebound of a season with a stunning 131-92 blowout over the Los Angeles Lakers in Game 6 on Tuesday night.  

With the outcome assured, Boston fans sang into the night as if they were in a pub on nearby Canal Street. They serenaded the newest champs in this city of champs, and taunted Kobe Bryant and his Lakers, who drowned in a green-and-white wave for 48 minutes.
