The Cavs Are Comin’; Celtics and Pistons, Take Note

No one man can carry a team like LeBron James, as Lindsey Hunter and the rest of the Pistons already know, making avoiding El Rey in the play-offs as long as possible key for the two main contenders atop the East.

The Cavs have been lightin’ it up lately, finally meshing like they did last year, and demonstrated their new cohesion last night, drubbing the recently resurgent Wizards.  Cleveland has now passed Orlando and taken up the mantle as the third best team in the East in my view, though not yet in terms of record.  While division winners are guaranteed a top 4 play-off spot in the NBA, fortunately they’re no longer guaranteed a top 3 seed.  This means if Cleveland and Orlando play to the best of their abilities the rest of the season, Detroit, and not Boston, will have to deal with LeBrontourage in the second round. 

Here’s hoping Cleveland’s current winning streak is for real, but not too real, or else basketball’s greatest one man show may derail both the machine-like Pistons and the Boston Three Party en route to a second consecutive NBA Finals appearance.  The best scenario for  Boston is that the heroic effort required of LeBron to get his team into rhythm and a decent play-off position will tire him out before the Celtics have to deal with those angry Ohioans. 

Thus, the possible additions of veterans like Damon Stoudamire and Theo Ratliff may prove even more important, not only for their potential roles in the play-offs, but for their ability to spell Boston’s starters while giving the team a bonafied chance at maintaining home court advantage after game #82.

    Dear,

    I’m an inter with startup widget 1000 and I created a news widget for Boston Celtics News.
    It’s updated every hours with NBA headlines from several different sports websites like ESPN, FOX Yahoo,etc. (Take a look: http://www.widget1000.com/)

    Can we add Boston Celtics Team blog to the widget,too? That means that every time you post to your blog the headline of the post will show up on the widget and link directly to your post.
    Anyone who puts this widget on their start page or on their website will see your Boston Celtics posts too. It’s a powerful and free way to publicize your site.

    Finally, would you add the Boston Celtics News Widget to your site so that others can see it?
    Everyone who grabs the widget will automatically link to you so it’s great for your search engine rankings. Plus, it shows a lot of stories about NBA and since it’s updated every hour it is fresh and will make your site even more appealing than it already is.

    What do you think?

    Go Boston Celtics
