Shane Larkin Injury: Celtics Guard Likely Out For Entire Cavs Series

LeBron James drives against the Celtics’ Marcus Morris on Feb. 11 in Boston

Isaiah Thomas, obtained from Boston in the Irving deal, was traded to the Los Angeles Lakers in February as the Cavaliers went dealing, landing guard George Hill from Sacramento, Larry Nance Jr. from the Lakers and Rodney Hood from Utah in a bid to find the right combination for another deep playoff run.

And if he beats the Celtics again and advances to his eighth straight NBA Finals, James would join a club now exclusive to Boston players with legendary status. "He was obviously incredibly hard for us to guard previous year, and we wish he was playing".

But leading two franchises in three different stints to the Conference finals or NBA Finals eight years in a row is beyond impressive. Will the LeBron James be able to lead the Cavaliers to victory or will the Celtics go to the Finals? That are advancing to the Eastern Conference finals in consecutive seasons for the first time since doing so five straight times from 1984 to 1988.

The bad news for Boston is that James got almost a week of rest, and just before that, his teammates seemed to figure out ways they could help him.

"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", he said. Cavs fans will probably start to loathe the New Zealand native by the end of this series.2.

How They Got Here: Boston beat No. 7 Milwaukee 4-3 and No. 3 Philadelphia 4-1.

Brad Stevens has been lauded by many analysts as a coaching genius for steering his Celtics all the way to the East finals with just a bunch of rookies and sophomores like Jayson Tatum, Terry Rozier and Jaylen Brown.

Rozier has flourished in a starting role since Irving was sidelined in mid-March.

"This team is the most mentally tough team I've ever been on", Brown said. "But we found a way, we pulled together". Cleveland was in such disarray it seemed like a foregone conclusion that James would opt out of his contract after the season and leave Ohio.

Boston has become a preferred spring destination for James.

Tuesday, May 15: Cleveland at Boston, 8:30 p.m. The Pacers were physical, resilient and confident.

These young Celtics won't back down from this LeBron challenge.

"Boston is better than Indiana", Cavs forward Kyle Korver said.

"I think in the Toronto series, no disrespect to them, but watching film it just looked very easy at times", Morris said. "LeBron's a special player, and they have really good players around him".

While his National Basketball Association career has not been completely without incident since (he missed four weeks this season after slicing open his hand while punching a hotel room glass picture frame out of frustration in Los Angeles), his fire, passion and willingness to put his body on the line has made him a central figure for a franchise that has made the playoffs every year of his career.
