While the Western Conference finalists reached this round in pretty standard fashion, the Boston Celtics and Cleveland Cavaliers have each travelled a non-standard path. He's just kind of a complete player.
It's quite the opposite, actually. "He was obviously incredibly hard for us to guard past year and we wish he was playing". They're thinking championship and they don't care who thinks they're a longshot.
But these Celtics are used to using doubt to fuel them.
LeBron James moved past both Jerry West (859) and Wilt Chamberlain (842) during the 2017 Eastern Conference finals while stopping the Celtics in five games. You dream about being able to play in big games in the NBA, and even when I got to the NBA that was one of my only goals: to be as great as I can be, to play in big games in the NBA and be remembered, and I think I've done that in my career.

The disrespect has been everywhere, and the Celtics have feasted on it.
To fully understand the history between James and Boston, let's take a look at each of the times they met in the playoffs. I didn't see no physicality, I didn't see any of that. "We lean on him a lot".
The Celtics however could potentially end LeBron's reign in Cleveland for a second time. Oh, and Boston could have three or four first-round picks in 2019. James is now playing in another stratosphere than any other player in the playoffs. He is averaging 34.3 points, 9.4 rebounds and 9.0 assists in 11 games in the playoffs. The Boston Celtics are shooting 36 percent from beyond the arc and 76.2 percent from the free throw line. The Cavs eliminated the Celtics in five games last season. "It was definitely a good time, "Circumstances are a little different now". With Stevens now in his fifth season, the culture has been set and the talent is in place.
"We talked about it prior to the playoffs, nobody should love a challenge more, nobody should have more fun doing it", Stevens said. "And, again, that's not a given". "So they really wanted me here, and not only because of that, just the toughness and things like that".
We got through all our running and were quite fast compared to previous years. "We should make the decisions", smiled Hamilton. Lewis Hamilton scored his second pole of the season with a Q3 lap of 1:16.173, also good enough for an official track record.
