Whatt happened to LaBron? I didn't see any of the Bulls series.

Healthy: Cavs in 5
Bothered: Cavs in 6

and no, my point stands. Pierce is one of the better suited SF matchups for labron. I figured it's obvious that labron is labron. Fly's post is just yet another example of someone making crap up.

The most interesting thing from the box score - Boston bench minutes were split between Posey, Brown, House and Powe.

They're all gone.

Rondo's gonna have to go Archibald and play 44+ minutes a night during this series.

Re: NBA Eastern Conference Playoffs: Cavaliers vs Celtics

Assuming James is healthy, for Boston to have a puncher's chance in this series Garnett's going to have to step up his offensive game, RAllen's going to have to drain a lot of threes and Rondo's going to have to average a near triple double. It seems safe to assume that Pierce's offensive contributions will be diminished due to having the responsibility for guarding James. Boston will also have to play even better team defense then they did against Miami while finding a way to control Vareajo - which they never seem to do.

Seriously Glen Davis would be the 7th big man on the Cavs. The Celtics bench is terrible.

Re: NBA Eastern Conference Playoffs: Cavaliers vs Celtics

i don't expect the rape party that a lot of people seem to. all teams shorten their playoff rotations but the celtics stand to benefit from doing so more than most other teams. cavs may go in 6 but it will prob be a tight 6

Re: NBA Eastern Conference Playoffs: Cavaliers vs Celtics

LeBron's injury sounds exactly like something I had in 8th grade. I was pitching and all of a sudden, when I threw, it felt like I hit my funny bone. Somehow, I managed to finish the inning while lobbing the ball to the plate.

I never quite understood the diagnosis, but the doctor said I strained a tendon in my shoulder, which somehow affected my ulnar nerve. It was pretty much a freak thing that went away after I rested my arm for a few days. I had to some exercises just to make sure my shoulder stayed strong, but that day was the only time my elbow felt like that.

Cliffs: LeBron and I are a lot alike.

LeBron doesn't have a funny bone in his body. He was awful on SNL and whenever he tries to tell a joke.

Why? Boston in is a legitimate option. Boston in 4 has a zero percent chance.

Without Paul Pierce....yeah I'm so ashamed of that loss when they started 'Quis who isn't even in the rotation anymore.

C's got this in 6. Gonna be painful to watch Rondo get molestered inside by Shaq and Sideshow Flop with no calls like Rose.

Celtics in 6 is correct. Luckily the Fakers get to Play Jazz in round 2 amirite?

i think 2/3 of these events occurring give them a reasonable chance. obv expect CLE to win the series (despite voting bos in 7) but i dunno i can see the old guys sacking up one last time and rondo pwns.
