    Miami has not impressed me.
    Boston has

    Bam > Williams
    Bulter = Tatum
    Herro < J. Brown

    Smart and Horford will be big in this series.

    Kobe has always been my favorite all time player. I watched Jordon, Kobe and Lebron. Started watching in early 90’s.

    Tatum is becoming one of my favorites to watch. He has that black mamba mentality. I really hope he gets Boston to the finish line against GSW.

    however if CP3 gets there. I’m rooting for him all the way.

    Boston has that 2004 Detroit Piston's spirit, no MVPs, just a couple of stars and great role players, but I'm rooting for the underdog Heat to make it UGLY.

    I think Boston wins this one pretty easily. Giannis had to go nuts just to have a chance although Bucks didn't have Middleton but still...Boston has been hot for months now and Tatum has made his case for having next.

    also, went against Boston for two series now. I think they take this in 5, Miami is a tough team but man I don't think they have the firepower to compete and Tatum will probably put them to bed a few games. If Milwaukee's defense couldn't stop him, no one is this postseason.

    Not a Celtics fan, but Boston looks like the team to beat right now, the way that they are playing. They are better than Miami and Dallas, and they are bigger and badder than Golden State.

    Jimmy Butler just took out a team with 2 supposed MVP’s in the last 5 years while missing his starting PG. Boston got the better players cause Jimmy’s best teammate is Bam or a 6th man but I wouldn’t count him out. Dude is an absolute savage and lives for moments like this. I’m not counting him out. He’s like the Anti-Harden. I’ll be rooting for him.

    I dunno man. Tatum looks primed to have a nice run of years in the top 5ish MVP range ahead of him. Pretty much there this season already.

    I think Jalen Brown is still underrated.
    He is in the Mold of CJ McCullom and Bradley Beal
    Suffered in the shadow of other players while still being very nice (Lillard and Wall respectively)
