Game 4 proved the Celtics aren’t ready yet
The Celtics left Boston with a commanding 2-0 series lead and talk of LeBron and Cleveland on the ropes. They’ll return home with the series tied up and the momentum on the Cavs’ side after two convincing wins and James rolling.
After Game 2, Colin thought the Celtics would win the series, and preemptively take their spot as Eastern Conference champs for the first time of many. Now he thinks LeBron is in the driver seat now, and ready to put away the starless upstarts. Colin thought Boston was ready, but they’re terrible on the road and will have to wait until next year to start their string of title runs with Kyrie and Gordon Hayward in the fold.
Jordan didn’t face better competition than LeBron
LeBron James continues to rack up playoff records and seems poised to pass Michael Jordan in nearly every important career statistical category. Regardless of what James does, many don’t think he’ll ever pass Michael Jordan as the NBA G.O.A.T, but Colin is tired of hearing about how great the competition Jordan faced was compared to LeBron.
Jordan’s 90’s NBA is romanticized as a death march with loaded rosters standing in his way to titles, but in reality most of thee players on every roster couldn’t shoot. Teams didn’t even have to defend bigs away from the basket. In today’s NBA, everyone can shoot, and teams have to defend all five players on the floor. Today’s NBA is less physical, but the players are better and more skilled. When Jordan faced the Knicks in the playoffs the games were in the 70’s. That’ not good basketball.
