    Yep. Boston is loaded. Not sure why people thought they'd suck because Kyrie is out. They played great without him in the reg season.

    True they are in trouble, but unless Boston can win in Cleveland, and I don't think they will....it will go 7. And anything can happen in game 7.

    Evan Turner wishes he stayed in Boston. Blazer fans also wish he had stayed in Boston. No one wins...

    He was joking and trolling based on Jason quicks comments in the past about cj being a dirty player. This is a play on that

    I can’t believe this Cleveland team was able to sweep Toronto.

    I know, but if you listen to ET much it’s very obvious he misses Boston and the guys he played with there.

    Boston is in such a good spot but will have to make a decision in the future with Hayward with how well Tatum and brown have played all year.

    Lebron is in Toronto’s head. Boston’s young enough to not have the mental block yet. I wouldn’t count out Lebron though.

    Oh okay okay. Yeah I feel he’s felt like that for a while. He had a good run there, fit better in their system. They just weren’t dumb to pay him what we did thinking he could replicate what he did in Boston

    I don’t see why Boston can’t win in Cleveland.

    Ty Lue is so so bad. Being matched up against Brad Stevens makes it even more apparent, dude has no clue. Could be as bad as Mike Brown and Paul Silas.

    I agree and think they will one of the next two games in Cleveland.

    Well they are 1-4 so far on the road and Cleveland has won their last 5 at home. My money is on the Cavs at home....

    I'd trade Hayward if I were them. It would suck to be Gordon but them's the breaks.

    What do you think they should trade him for? What, in your mind, is their biggest weakness?

    Good question. They have ASS-ETS...

    I'd look for a Collins Type PF to play alongside Horford.

    Assuming Davis and Kristaps Porzingis are unavailable, who's the best version of that archetype out there? Are there any?

    I wonder how Blake would fit on that squad. Or more precisely, what Brad Stevens could do with him.
