Re: Will the Cavs make past the Celts????!!!!I'm a huge Cavs fan, live in Cleveland, and it's pretty obvious the Celtics are the better team, with a MUCH better head coach. There's a few reasons this shouldn't be so surprising.
1.) Z, Shaq, and Jamison had not been on the roster together until the playoffs began.
2.) Shaq just came back at the start of the playoffs after missing 2 months.
3.) Under Mike Brown, the offensive system has been absolutely terrible and has not improved, they're lost on offense
4.) Boston is the better team. Take the top four players from each team, the Cavs have LeBron, Jamison, Shaq, and Mo Williams. The Celtics have Rondo, Pierce, KG, and Ray Allen. Take away the best player from each team (for the sake of arguement, we'll say it's Rondo). That leaves the Cavs with a 38 year old Shaq, Jamison, and Mo. The Celtics still have 3 future HOFers...even if you take away one of the Big 3 you still have 2 HOFers and an emerging superstar PG in Rondo...
