How to stop LeBron? 'I don't know,' says Celtics rookie Tatum

How to stop LeBron? 'I don't know,' says Celtics rookie Tatum

Cavs coach Tyronn Lue said it's called '3 Open'. But if he has other plans, he should think about joining another team.

Tactical nomenclature is probably irrelevant to the Cavaliers right now.

The Celtics defeated the Philadelphia 76ers in Game 5 on Wednesday night to seal passage to the Eastern Conference Finals where they will now meet the Cavaliers. This is the way things have been for him these last magical weeks.

So, here we are, exactly where just about everybody in the basketball world expected. As long as what he needs isn't basketball'. Though, barely anybody gets past LeBron's Cavs. He's averaged 34.4 points per game.

While his need to be the focal point is understandable, Griffin believes both him and James could have co-existed together much like Jordan and Pippen did for the Chicago Bulls. For everyone outside Cleveland, Boston, Houston, and Golden State, the focus is now firmly on the NBA Draft and free agency.

Despite LeBron's apparent talent, many like to attack his finals record, which is 3-5, as he's in pursuit of being in his eight straight NBA Finals, and the ninth appearance in the championship series in his career.

Toni Kroos 'surprised, impressed' by Liverpool in Champions League
The Egyptian striker will return to Stamford Bridge for the first time as the recently crowned double player-of-the-season. This season I'm seeing a very clinical player, every opportunity, every chance he takes'.

Maybe he understands this as time ticks down on what is expected to be the end of his second run with the Cavaliers. And it wasn't about being the man-it's: 'How good can I be?

James's debt to Cleveland was paid in the summer of 2016 when he brought the city their first sports title in five decades.

The older LeBron gets, the more clutch he becomes. Okay, great. Now can you do it for a month, can you do it for a year, now do it for a decade, do it for a decade plus.

Boston - despite not having its best two players in Irving and Gordon Hayward - looks like it has a better roster than the one that was thoroughly beat by the Cavs last spring. Along with his outside shot, he's added the fadeaway, and more than at any time in his career he's willing to take the shot that will win, or fail to win, the game. It took him a lot of years to learn how to involve his teammates in order to win championships.

James is creating most of those points himself, too. I know the Lakers have the cap space to spend and may have to look elsewhere if James or George don't sign, but I can assure you inking any of these players would be a regrettable decision.
