Other than Al Horford, the Celtics do not have a talented big man who can take on the game's best centers. After all, Golden State is on pace to win its second consecutive championship while making its third consecutive NBA Finals appearance.
Cleveland Cavaliers forward LeBron James.
Oh, and one last note: Rumor has it, LeBron James is open to discussions with Boston.
The Cavaliers went all in around James, signing important players to big contracts to keep together a championship contender. Throughout the season, there were times when Horford struggled against players like Steven Adams, Joel Embiid, and LaMarcus Aldridge. Is it if there is a ball on the ground we can't reach for it, but you've got to dive for it? But everyone knew that.
James said people who don't know the game don't understand what he's talking about. "I think they're scared and should be scared to some degree of Kyrie Irving walking in 2019", Mannix said on his podcast. No, I don't know.
With a few high-salary stars - James, Kevin Love, and previously Kyrie Irving - teams like the Cavs have little choice but to re-sign valuable role players because they have few methods of replacing them.

The giveaway is part of the chain's "Steal a Game, Steal a Taco" promotion for the National Basketball Association finals. Taco Bell runs a similar promotion in the fall with Major League Baseball called "Steal A Base, Steal A Taco".
They won't have anything to lose since King James will not return to Cleveland next season unless they make more roster changes, which translate into getting rid of Smith. "If one of them has a bad game, they have three or four guys that can actually pick up the load". Golden State has two league MVPs - Stephen Curry (2015, '16) and Durant (2014). The Celtics have put in every bit of work you can possibly put in to set up the future. Harden has the numbers to win that's obvious, yet he wasn't the most valuable player to his team. That's what you want to try to do.
I played with D-Wade, I played with Bosh in the Olympics.
Again, in this series, "I don't necessarily agree with that" counts as a fight. Then give them a game in the NBA Finals, especially against the woefully outmatched Cavs, and it's a wrap.
"I think it's gonna be one of those things, kind of like what Golden State did". "It's very different. You don't have the aircraft carriers, you don't have Shaq and Patrick Ewing and Hakeem". I'm not being an advocate for the world being completely flat.
