With the start of the NBA season just around the corner, Image Entertainment Oct. 26 will release Los Angeles Lakers: 2010 NBA Finals Series Collector’s Edition on Blu-ray Disc and DVD.
The four-disc Blu-ray boxed set will retail for $89.98 and features all seven games in their entirety. An eight-DVD set is available at $79.98.
The Lakers won their 16th NBA franchise title (second consecutive) in seven games against the Boston Celtics, including wining the final game 83-79. The two teams have a storied history with their combined 33 championships accounting for more than half of the NBA's total winners. Boston leads the series with 17 championships.
Last season's Lakers win marked a reversal of the 2008 championships won by Boston four games to two. It was the first time the teams met for the championship since the mid-'80s when superstar rivals Larry Bird and Magic Johnson featured prominently during the '84, '85 and '87 championships. Lakers' leader Kobe Bryant won his second consecutive championship series' MVP award.
