    Should be a classic but Boston got too many "ice in their veins" scorers... Boston 4-2

    Celtics and Lakers finals. Because of TV ratings, merit.

    you think kids, new fans care or even know about a rivalry from the 80s?

    im not a new fan, but i have nephs that are fairly new (kyrie generation) and i don't think they care so much about the lakers/celtics rivalry of old. i'm skeptical on whether the ratings will be much higher if the league forces celtics vs lerbons.

    the young fans I've talked to seem to focus more on individual players instead if team rivalries (is this even a thing?)

    Heat come down to earth. Celtics in 6


    Mostly because I'm a Jayson Tatum fan.

    Toronto vs Boston was great.

    This matchup can be one for the books. Another 7 games series written all over it with both teams so evenly matched in a similar hard nosed playing style system

    Marcus Smart is who people think PJ Tucker is and it’s not even close.. Smart 10x over 10 better than PJ

    Early signs seem like a pretty tough matchup for Miami with way Boston is able to match up with them defensively. Who's going to provide enough scoring for Miami individually

    Miami does not switch everything on defense.
