1. What are you most excited to watch in this series?
Brian Windhorst, ESPN.com: You’re always excited to watch LeBron. Some of the most pivotal games of his career have come against the Celtics in the playoffs. Especially at TD Garden, some of his highest highs and lowest lows have happened in that concrete box with its yellow and brown seats. I’m ready for the next chapter.
Kevin Arnovitz, ESPN.com: Cleveland has an all-purpose forward who dictates the terms of the game every time out. Watch him play and you’ll see a player who combines size and speed, power and finesse, creative playmaking and incomprehensible shotmaking. The really crazy thing? He’s played nearly 3,500 minutes since opening night.
André Snellings, ESPN Fantasy: The Celtics have faced three phenoms in the first two rounds of the playoffs and have done well containing them. I want to see how they match up with the ultimate phenom in James, and whether their young players can continue their fearless performances when facing the best player in the world. If Jayson Tatum, Jaylen Brown and Terry Rozier can look “Thanos” directly in the eye and continue to play their best ball, then we’ll know these young guys are truly special.
