FLOWERY BRANCH – Wide receiver Roddy White put on his NBA analyst hat after the team’s organized team activities session on Thursday.
He concluded from a quick survey of the locker room that the Falcons were overwhelmingly in favor of the Boston Celtics. Game 1 is set for 9 p.m. tonight in Los Angeles.
“We are going with the Celtics,” White said.
Running back Jason Snelling backed him up.
“Boston, because I don’t like the Lakers,” he said.
Cornerbacks Brian Williams and Christopher Owens are Laker backers.
But they are clearly in the minority, along with running back Michael Turner.
“Lakers, they are just hoping that Kobe (Bryant) doesn’t win,” Turner said.
