    The Cavs are so hard to watch. Awful defense and there is just no team chemistry on offense.

    But I’ll give the Celtics credit. They play damn good defense. Brad Stevens is the best in the game, outside of Pop.

    LeBron is by himself and Ty Lue has no fucking clue how to manage this team.

    Ty Lue only has the job because he bamboozled Lebron.

    Sad to say it, but I think Celtics win it in 7, and it may not matter. Warriors would beat either of them in 4. Maybe 5 max. Bo one is built to beat the warriors

    Take a look at the team's assists to see the difference a competent offensive system can make:

    Total Assists in Playoffs:
    Cleveland: 253
    Boston: 305

    Leader in Assists:
    CLE: LeBron with 120 (47% of team's assists)
    BOS: Rozier with 79 (26% of team's assists)


    The way this roster is assembled, the Cavs would probably be better off with David Blatt. Back when they had Kyrie, an offensive system wasn't very important and arguably detrimental if your two stars weren't all-in.
