    Yes, im a celtics fan.

    But i try to be unbiased. I see the 6ers as a better matchup than the bucks for the celtics

    When he was in Minnesota, he was an aggressive offensive force and also kind of an outspoken California boy and related to iconic celebrity.

    In Cleveland, he's a reluctant offensive player with emotional issues who tries never to be in the spotlight.

    Gotta wonder.

    People actually believe he is going to opt out of this $28 million guaranteed because he doesn't want to come off the bench next year in OKC.

    haha, yeah there's no way. More likely he's trying to throw a tantrum so he gets traded to LA, not understanding that neither LA nor any other team not named Oklahoma Thunder will pay this turkey close to even half of that amount. If he's not about the money then he should opt out and take the veteran's minimum to play wherever his buddy LeBron goes.

    He thinks he's a good shooter, and everyone else is the problem. Too funny

    So jealous of the Celtics. The young guns look good and once Pop retires, Brad Stevens is the best coach in the league. He loses Hayward and Irving and is still 3 wins away from getting back to the East Finals. What an amazing job.

    They were never contenders for a title though. Decent regular season team; not elite.

    Great celtics win.

    Brown/Tatum/Morris>>>Saric/Ilyasova/Bellineli, felt that was the big advantage coming into the series.

    More like Fleecing Billy King skills. As a Nets fan, getting over that dumb trade is gonna take a long time.

    You would think that the “don’t let this guy beat you” philosophy couldn’t have been more appropriate. It’s coaching 101 that you double team him and force him to give up the ball, and they had two or three chances to do it and didn’t even try. That’s seriously bad coaching.

    Dude the East is such a joke. Brad Stevens vs LeBron Part II unless the Celtics somehow blow the lead. I thought Philly would win the East and I was wrong. I knew the Craptors were a joke though.

    hes got more playoff game winners then Kobe and MJ. Shame he's going to lose another NBA title.

    I would love to see LeBron team up with Anthony Davis over in New Orleans, maybe they bring back Cousins too. Get rid of Rondo cause he can't shoot.

    Idk about New Orleans although that does sound good but if I were him I'd bounce from Cleveland after the year too. He played there 11 years and the best they could keep around him was Kevin Love. Yeah, peace out Cleveland, hopefully they don't burn his jerseys this time.

    Dan Tony is like a 2-1 dog despite having the MVP and home court. It wouldn't be the first time Dan Tony lost in similar circumstances. I wanted him on the Lakers but come on man, how many times can you get your ass handed to you because you coach zero defense?

    It's shaping up to be Cavs Warriors IV if you just go by the Vegas Odds. How exciting we get to see LeBron lose again. Can't cheer for LeBron and can't cheer for the Warriors. Gun to my head I guess I'd rather see LeBron win. Not happening

    Prediction: Warriors in 6 over Rockets. Cavs in 6 over Celtics. Warriors in 5 over Cavs. LeBron joins Rockets in offseason.
