and how were they going to do that? I’m pretty sure they knew he was their priority. They couldn’t contain him last season and the the season before. Nobody on that Celtic team has the athleticism to guard him, they would have to double team him to get that done and that would leave open shooters. The Pacers series has shown that Mario, Battier, Haslem, and Miller all could definitely step up when they are needed. Your theory did work when LBJ was with the Cavs when he had nobody helped him.
Lol @rayallen at the end he knew he was gonna be going to south beach but Boston could have easily won the series if they shutdown James in game 6 at home and scored some points in the fourth quater in game 7
all u celtics fans r making too much excuses when u know chris bosh was out until game 6 and u guys know the only way to beat the heat was to have a legit center dont give me kg he’s a power forward. Spoelstra was being real dumb to not start bosh until the nba finals
Hmm.. it seems to me that you’re forgetting some details of the Heat’s playoff run this past year. The Heat’s power forward Chris Bosh went down with an abdominal strain injury which sidelined him for almost the 2 entire series. Without his presence the Heat were missing an important piece of the team and they had to find new ways to run things.
Because Bosh was injured? If KG was out the celtics wouldn’t have made it to the ECF, if Howard is out the lakers probably wont get past OKC, if durant is out OKC won’t get past LA, Bosh was out and the heat still made it to the finals.
They’re the team to beat next season. They won the championship and got BETTER.
paul & kg’s game is not based on overwhelming athleticism . . its more about skill & iq and even though they’re older. . they still manage to be productive so.. and its not about who starting 5 is more versatile, its about the totality of the team. .
