Franchises "Destroyed" By Post-Decision LeBron James

  • Philadelphia 76ers

This time around, the Celtics will be forced to compete with a roster filled with young talent, but no superstar. And Tatum is coming of a series against Philadelphia that saw him average 23.6 points per game — the second-highest by a Celtics rookie in franchise history.

His prolific-prone performances against Toronto alone gave him a whopping 36-point per game clip going to the Conference Finals, a first-class headache of a stat to any team trying to stop LeBron, if not defeat Cleveland. "But just with me, Al (Horford), Terry, Jaylen, we've been here from that team from past year, just kind of letting guys know it's not going to be easy". He wouldn't mind another performance like this throughout the series. In the past, he has had some of the biggest moments of his career against the Celtics.

Rozier has shown flashes of being one of the team's primary scoring options, but has proven he is not the same player on the road. He did against Toronto and IN, shooting 55 percent from the floor and averaging 34 points per game IN each series. Hill, acquired from Sacramento at the trading deadline, is getting his first chance to play with the Cavaliers in the conference finals.

Marcus Morris (6-9, 235) also guarded James during the regular season. "Certainly I'll pick Kyrie's brain on not only him but the other guys around him".

Morris will have the unenviable task of defending James, who has been in stunning form during the National Basketball Association playoffs.

From Stevens' ability to draw up plays out of timeouts, to his management of late-clock situations, to getting the best out of his roster, James has always been a fan.

Korver and Smith are similar to Philadelphia shooters J.J. Redick and Marco Belinelli, whom the C's defended in the previous round, in the vein that all are more than capable of draining catch-and-shoot 3s with little to no airspace. "So why not the guy that's been in the finals the last X amount of years", DeRozan said.

It looked unlikely both teams would make it to this point during the regular season. His statistics aren't too appealing for an All-Star, but he has made his presence felt nonetheless.


It's a lot to ask, but the Celtics have surprised the first two rounds.

LeBron James likely will dominate National Basketball Association free agency talk over the summer, but The King hardly is the only noteworthy player who will be available on the open market in the offseason. He was getting to different places on the court.

In some ways this is a similar matchup to the Celtics and Cavaliers. If it's the team that looked so strong in Round 2, they'll beat the Celtics.

Meanwhile, James isn't buying into the chatter about how his squad will overwhelm the Celtics. The question is if they can slow down the rest of the supporting cast.

He set a record last spring for the most points scored against the Celtics in the playoffs with 979 in 34 games.

This series should be a ton of fun and luckily no games will be starting at 9PM so everyone should be able to stay up late enough to watch.

"Indiana traded Paul George, they said they were going to be last in the East", Lue said, in crediting Pacers coach Nate McMillan.

James' early life was not exactly easy, but through the perseverance of his mother, Gloria Marie James, the support of many friends and his own dedication, he managed to make a better life for himself.
