Just a quick pregame update: Lebron James says the Celtics seem to care little for the regular season. What are you, Lebron? A psychic? (Cleveland Plain Dealer)
“To me, the Celtics look bored with the regular season,” James said. “I’m not saying they’ve tanked the regular season, I’m just saying an experienced team like Boston has so much talent, they know how to win in the playoffs. Just looking at them, they look like they’re ready for a new challenge.” [...]
“Any time you have a team that has so many guys who can put the ball in the basket and can decide to really defend they are dangerous,” James said. “They are ready for a challenge and that would be the playoffs. Last year in the playoffs they didn’t have KG, so it wasn’t a fair shot. That’s looking at them from the outside. I may be wrong, but I know basketball and I know those guys.”
In other pregame news, Kevin Garnett did not say that Lebron is a good dunker. But if he had, it would have been as earth-shattering as hearing the Celtics are bored with the regular season.
