C's fan Francona on Game 7: 'I love it'
By: DJ Bean

It was clear prior to Thursday's finale between the Red Sox and Diamondbacks that the home team was well aware of the decisive seventh game of the NBA finals that is to take place between the Celtics and Lakers later on in Los Angeles. During batting practice Mike Cameron roamed the outfield in a green "Beat LA" shirt, while Terry Francona told reporters that as a fan of the Celtics, he'll be pulling for Doc Rivers' club to win it all. 

 

"As a fan, [I want] the Celtics," Francona told reporters. "I'm just like everybody else. As a fan I get nervous, get excited. Obviously we need to have our priorities in line and win our game tonight, but when our game's over I will be very excited to go watch this game. How can you not be? I love it. It's Game 7. To watch how people react, it's really cool. I love it."
