The two teams will face off once again in the 2010 NBA Finals. The Celtics currently lead in total championships with 17 to the Lakers’ 15; together, the two teams’ 32 championships account for more than half of the 63 championships in NBA history.

According to sources, drug king pin Rick Ross (the real one) is planning to file a lawsuit against Rick Ross the rapper and his label home Def Jam Records, claiming the rapper stole his identity.
The case originally started in 2006 when Ross sent a cease-and-desist letter to Def Jam regarding the issue which Ross alleges were ignored. Upon the real Rick Ross’s release from prison in 2009, he made it clear that the rapper was using not only his name, but his entire image as a drug dealer to sell records.
Ross claims that Miami rapper Rick Ross (William Leonard Roberts II) signed a multimillion dollar deal in 2006, based on his image and likeness as a drug dealer.
The real Rick Ross controlled thousands of workers at the height of his power in the mid-1980′s, who dealt millions of dollars worth of cocaine each day.
In 1996, Ross was sentenced to life in prison for attempting to purchase over 100 kilograms of cocaine, but the verdict was over turned after a series of explosive articles appeared in the San Jose Mercury News, which exposed the C.I.A.’s role in distributing cocaine to Black communities to fund Contra fighters in Nicaragua.
The real “Rick Ross” has been actively touring urban America spreading his message, and motivational speaking to at-risk youth, the hood, ex-offenders, and recovering addicts, about the powers of redemption, and he spoke at the annual Savior’s Day as a guest of Minister Louis Farrakhan.
A movie about his life, written by producer Nick Cassavettes, is slated for release next year.
