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.
