Windhorst: "No other great situations" could keep LeBron James in Cleveland

He'll shoot, kind of a complete player. "You play the same guys over and over and eventually, teams start to figure out your strategies". "We can go through the stat line all you want, but when your season's on the line and you need to do really hard things, he can do really hard things". (ABC) for the Cleveland Cavaliers who are set to battle the Boston Celtics for the chance to play for an NBA Championship. James is now playing in another stratosphere than any other player in the playoffs. After knocking off the Philadelphia 76ers in Round 2, the Celtics are riding high on confidence as players like Jaylen Brown, Marcus Smart and Terry Rozier have blossomed in the postseason.

New to the LeBron mix tomorrow will be Marcus Morris and Semi Ojeleye, who has become a Swiss army knife defender with his versatility.

In most cases, betting markets remained bearish on the Celtics despite everything that was transpiring on the court, where Jayson Tatum, Terry Rozier and Co. were making fans temporarily forget about Kyrie Irving, who's out for the postseason following knee surgery.

Added Rozier: "We understand he's gonna make some insane plays". That's LeBron. But we've got to try and make it as tough as we can.

There are no shortage of suitors for his signature with the Los Angeles Lakers, Philadelphia 76ers and even the Houston Rockets tipped to make a play for the three-time champion. "We know it will be quite a challenge".

"There's been a lot that's happened throughout the season with us and for them", Cavs forward/center Kevin Love said Thursday. The Sixers have USD70 in committed salary next year, leaving them with about USD31 million to play with this summer to make a run at LeBron James or Paul George or overpay a lower-tiered free agent. "It's about the team, we're playing for each other".


It has all added up to the Celtics becoming the Cinderella team of these National Basketball Association playoffs, joining the favored Cavs, Rockets and Warriors in the Final Four.

Immediately, he thought the reporter meant that Kyrie Irving would be playing with the Cleveland Cavaliers.

"Big time. He's around", said Rozier. At this point, I'd rather go down with the ship and ask for mercy from Boston later. He's always going to be there for me to talk to, whether it's something I can get better at, something I can see, things like that. "I feel that last experience in the playoffs is as good a life lesson and as good a coach as our young guys will have".

"He's made for this", Stevens said. The most significant difference is that neither team has their starting point guards from last season, with the Cavs trading Kyrie Irving to Boston for Isaiah Thomas before the season started. This after the Celtics had only the ninth-best homecourt record during the regular season (27-14). Because they're on TV all the time, we're watching them every night, just like everybody else is.

As far as Brown is concerned, he's moved beyond the minutes restriction that was in place to help recover from a strained right hamstring. With Joel Embiid struggling on defense along with Simmons and Robert Covington struggling on defensively on the perimeter all series long, it made the glaring weaknesses more profound.

"I know everybody is curious about where things stand with my rehab. I'll be 100 percent ready", he said. "No matter how good you're playing or how bad you're playing, they're going to ride with you". "It was kind of weird, because my body was reteaching itself how to run. We're doing good and we play better when our back is against the wall".
