One Week Until Our Biggest Test

pierce-lebron

Lakers fans can say what they want, the Cleveland Cavaliers have emerged as the biggest threat to the Celtics… if not for the mere fact that we’ll have to get through them to even get to the Finals.

The Eastern Conference semifinals last year was an epic matchup that was won because Paul Pierce matched LeBron James.  But there’s no matching him this year.  LeBron has taken an almost unimaginable leap into a plane where few player have EVER existed.  Logic tells me that it’s impossible for him, and the Cavs, to sustain this.  But logic, and a few rules of physics, don’t apply to LeBron James.

We’ve got one week of hype (and 3 other games) to go.  But make no mistake about it… this game is easily as big as the Christmas Day game… and probably bigger.

After the jump, another shot that someone has taken at Kevin Garnett

  1. The Cavs didn’t make the ECF last year, they got beat in the 2nd round.

  2. Still love that screen on Zaza!!!
    Wally DIDN’T play defence!

  3. Interesting too – in a 13 year career this twat found two stories from (how many) practises, a couple of hard screens, the odd elbow.

    KG’s played over 1000 games in the post – he’d be a pussy if there weren’t a few stories after that long.
    I’ve played basketball for 10 years and I probably have about that many incidents too – pathetic.

  4. people hate winners…

  5. Wow-I must’ve been really drunk last year. I was at the Cleveland-Boston Game 7, but I thought it was the semi’s! Wait until I tell everyone I was at the Eastern Conference Finals! Thanks Red’sArmy!

  6. Yeah, they do hate winners. Say what you want about KG, he’s a great player, great athlete and CHAMPION!

  7. check it out some laker fan got the article from NY Post

    Source: Celtics Aren’t on Top of Steph’s List

  8. Mr. Purple Thong – Thanks for pointing out our error..its been corrected.

  9. As for the Post article, all Marbury is saying is that he hasn’t decided for sure on Boston. Its all posturing at this point. Marbury and the Celtics have mutual interest…thats where this stands.

  10. In the East, that may be true, but the Lakers are considerably better than the Cavs. Some purists go as far as to say the Lakers are the best team in the NBA. When you put it into perspective, the Lakers play much better teams than the Boston Celtics, and they’re all even in the loss column.

  11. I’ve heard many an ESPN analyst say the East is better than the West this year….

  12. BigMck-love your site/blog. Keep it up..

  13. Who says basketball isn’t a contact sport.

  14. hello

  15. The East has the Celtics, the “defending Champs.” They’re supposed to be the best team in the NBA. Now, the Cavaliers, Magics, and Hawks, in my opinion, are not better than the Lakers, Spurs, Rockets, etc. While the East has the best team in the NBA, the West has much more depth, and it’s undisputed that Western teams have much tougher schedules than Eastern teams.

  16. Worst record in the NBA: 4-30 by OKC (Western Conference)

    Number of teams with 10 or less wins: 1 in the East
    6 in the West

    Number of teams with 25+ wins: 3 in the East
    1 in the West

    Number of teams with 25+ losses: 1 in the East
    4 in the West

    Number of teams with 10 or less losses: 3 in the East
    2 in the West

    These conferences are a lot more comparable than you make them out to be; things aren’t the same as they were earlier in this decade. There is a group of absolutely abysmal teams: OKC, SAC, LAC, MIN, GS, MEM. That group is worse than the group of absolutely horrible teams in the East.

    Granted, the West has more depth is terms of winning teams (evidenced by the record of the last playoff team). However, the West also has more depth in terms of horrible teams.

    I would still stay the West is a little bit better, but not by much.

  17. Unfortunately, with Ilgauskas injured, this matchup suddenly is meaningless. He’s one of their best players. I think it will help us win because Z always does well against us but it pulled some of the excitement from the game. At least for me.

    I also wish I could punch Wally Szerbs for making me have to root for him.

  18. Rene, I stopped reading your post as soon as I read “Magics.” Do you say Miami Heats and Oklahoma City Thunders as well?

  19. GREAT VIDEO!! That is why we love KG.

  20. Just locked up 2 tickets to the game court level anyone going to be in Ohio? i may be able to part with one for nothing

  21. I’ll come to Ohio and bring you a Celtics shirt to wear if you give me the ticket.

  22. We arent winning in cleveland bro, so you can forget that

  23. Hey, rene, happy new year, stop living in last season…the west had regressed, half the elite teams arent even healthy, the east is as deep or deeper from top to bottom and much better, get a godamn clue sister

  24. That video is interesting… I do think some of KG’s actions on the court are tantamount to pure stupidity and “machismo” (which could be redundant, I guess).
