    LeBron Wants To Play Boston

    Source: Cleveland



    the more it became obvious that if James and the rest of the Cavs had their choice, they would choose a rematch with the defending champion Celtics and not the Orlando Magic.

    He said he'd seen every one of the Magic's playoff games and talked about how difficult they are to defend with Dwight Howard and his strong shooters. But there was an edge when James discussed the Celtics.
    "We know everything about Boston, we have a history with them," James said. "They're an experienced club, you take away one All-Star, one Hall of Famer in KG [Kevin Garnett] and they've still got two more. It is going to be a tough conference final no matter which team we play because it is going to be one more step to the goal. We can't wait."

    Has he wanted another postseason shot at Pierce and Boston since?

    "I'm a competitor, I thrive on going against the best," James said. "I love playing against the best you make your answer out of that."
    Things only got more intense this season. The Cavs stayed in the locker room when the Celtics got their rings on opening night, and then the teams staged four intense games, with the home team winning all four.
    "Talent wins games, but teamwork and intelligence wins championships."
    - Michael Jordan

    Thanks MJ-Bulls for the picture.

    "Yeah, cuz he is afraid of Orlando"

    or

    "Cuz he knows they cant beat Orlando"

    In order to be the best, you have to beat the best.....

    I respect Lebron the player, I don't really like Lebron's personality, but I like what he says here.

    Thanks to JDink24 on the sig

    Orlando has mostly had Cleveland's number this season. Cleveland squeaks out wins in Cleveland and Orlando demolishes them in FL.
    No acting here!

    This is not being a veteran leader making such statements.

    A win vs Boston wouldn't get full payback, due to being KG-less
    Orlando isn't a pushover. They're not consistent, but they're tough.

    Lebron is good on the court, otherwise, I'm not the biggest fan
    Time for some hootenanny.

    I'd want to play the more banged up team too but it's not like the Cavs are afraid of anyone.

    I agree on the rest, but what does this have to do with being a veteran leader?

    Celtics just made a huge comeback in the 4th quarter. The Magic are choking once again.

    I guess Stern just read the article. He's got Lebron's back. Whoohoo

    i think the celtics will give the cavs a better series than the magic. lebron will kill hedo but pierce can at least compete. neither would stop him but pierce plays decent d on him. even without kg i think the celtics are the stronger matchup. mo would also take it to alston more than rondo. either way the cavs are looking like the title favorites but you never know what can happen.

    Not the same Orlando or Boston teams without KG and Nelson. I would have like to see these three team compete when healthy to see who really is the best in the east.
