  2. Regular season… let’s not get carried away, remember the hawks when they got swept, the d rose bulls, last years Celtics got destroyed too. All just regular season teams

  3. Why is Jalen Rose talking about the Celtics like they are the same team as last season? The team is completely different, it's much better.

  4. If both teams are healthy this playoffs, Cavs win. They better watch out next year though. With Hayward coming back, possibly more players being traded for and Tatum and Brown with even more experience, they can go to the finals

  5. can't wait to see the celtics playing in the finals while the haters will be at home making excuses

  6. Hell nah. The Cavs win the important games against the actual contenders

  7. IT will not save the Cavs. IT only looks like a superstar under Brad Stevens. Brad Stevens is a force multiplier that can take a young team full of rookies and sophomores into a long wining streak. On the other hand, Tyrone Lue straight trash, he has the best player on the planet yet the Cavs still lose to trash teams or need Lebron to go into playoff mode just to barely beat trash teams. IT will look like a bum under Lue, the same bum ass bench rider he was before the Celtics.

  9. 🤔 the Cavs get IT back cool here's the thing he was able to be so great on the Celtics last year because we could play well on defense regardless of Him. The Cavs sucked on defense last year and their even worse this year you know how much harder it will be when he's back and they have to play 4 on 5.

  10. Im so sick of every media pundit sucking Lebron's dick. Have some fucking faith in an underdog FOR ONCE and stop overhyping every god damn team

  11. Can they challenge them? NO SHIT THEY CAN. Of course, then they would proceed to get swept, but at least they challenged them

  12. I’m a die-hard Cleveland sports fan. And being realistic the Celtics look good and I can see them surprising use big time if we don’t take them seriously.

  13. Jalen Rose is Delusional. With the way the Celtics are built today with Young Talented Players like Brown, Tatum, Smart, Rozier and Veteran leadership of Kyrie, Horford and Hayward.. They're gonna Rule the East for years to come like the Warriors did with the West. And yes they can beat the Cavs in an ass whooping way

    Reply
  14. "When IT comes back" Jalen he's never been there in the first place.

    Reply
  15. If the boy Gordon didn’t get injured, they would finish the season with the number one seed, and at least force a 7 game series versus a healthy Cavaliers team. I don’t think the Cavs will be healthy so they are lucky that he is injured

  16. All these sports commentators will eat their words when Kyrie and the Celtics defeats LeBron and the Cavs in the East.

  17. Cavs already beat your lil kid Celtics

    Reply
  18. When was Tristan Thompson a rim protector he couldn't get no boards in the finals the Cavs are too old the Celtics is a young team and have a better coach

    Reply
  19. Here is what I dont get. Last year everybody said: “The Celtics can’t beat the Cavs, IT is not as good as Kyrie.” This year: “But the Cavs got IT, he will make a major impact.”

    Don’t get me wrong, I love IT as a Boston fan and want him all the success in his life, but you can’t deny, Cavs is struggling and it’s on their defense which won’t be better even when IT comes back.

  20. LeBron garbage 😂😂😂😂

    Reply
  21. lmao IT scored almost 30 ppg in the Celtics system with great plays being called for him from an elite coach and he was the number 1 option, second we dont know if he will be 100 percent you are all just assuming he will be fine and dandy. and lastly cavs main issue is there bum ass defense and IT will only make it worst..the cavs is a way different system and jae crowder is learning that the hard way.

    Reply
  22. funny they keep talking about the cavs, like they are guaranteed to make the east finals again..lol can we wait untill the cavs get the fuck out of 10 place in the east before we start talking about them..lmao

    Reply
  23. The real question right now should be ' can the Cavs MAKE the playoffs….. with their no defense playing asses!! lmao!!!!

    #GoSpursGoooooo!!!

  29. Lol the title should be can the Cavs challenge the Celtics 🤗😬

    Reply
  30. Lol Jalen knows …can u expect a team that has played in the max amount of games over the last 3 years to come out the gate firing ….cavs already k ow regular season is a joke for them …Cs were am Avery Bradley 3 away from getting swept last year ….kyrie makes up for ITs 30 ppg…so it's the same match up that cavs cake walk through

    Reply
  31. Celtics play so much harder than the cavs and thats not just based off this season

    Reply
  32. Jalen Rose pisses me off. These ex nba niggas ride lebron like he helped get them to the finals one year or sum shit smh. Brad stevens putting him in the position to be successful got IT the best season of his career. Floor spacing, dribble handoffs on the move, two man game with horford, mediocre talent around him etc.. All factors to ITs success. Too many names and too many ppl that need the ball in their hands for IT to duplicate that production.

  33. No way the Celtics can win against the goat 🐐

  34. The Celtics lost one of their best players the first gane of the year! GORDON HAYWOOD

  35. Why the fuck does everyone think Cavs are a contender to begin with? Are you kidding me a team full of old ass veterans and washed up all-stars will not last in a competitive playoff run especially this year. Facing younger and energized teams, plus they're like what 12th now? Which means they gotta battle their way just to get a spot in the playoffs. There's a reason why they're playing so bad and getting a beat down by under .500 teams of last year. They're a target and nobody wants them in the playoffs. They traded away their best closer that WON them a ring. If it wasn't for Kyrie last year they wouldnt have that championship.

  36. Whoever wins the ecf will lose against the warriors.

  37. if celts no injuries they go all the way then u got pistons n wizards. lol cavs not right now

    Reply
  38. Celtics are slowly building a serious contender only to be bulldozed by Magic’s huge summer next year. The more things change the more they stay the same.

    Reply
  39. celtics is a season team while cavs is a playoff team! celts is like the top seed 4 all star atlanta hawks who by the way dismantled by the cavs in the post season back in 2015

  40. Molly Q could beat Michelle Beads from east to west
