    So so tired of wishy washy back and forth Stephen backwards. He sure was singing a different tune after the Cavs win tonight. I just wish he would just report on the win or lose. No need to talk down and belittle a team or it's players. Like what have you ever done?

    Come on Stephen A! How much hyperbole can you sink to? Calling any team in a play off situation a disgrace in the same city where the Browns exist? Yeah it might have stunk, but let's keep perspective here man!

    I am a die hard Celtics fan. As a basketball enthusiast as well, LeBron is one of the greatest, always will. But we in the playoffs and I want to see him fuck up all night. Sorry, it's the Eastern Conference Finals. The players are friends or acquaintances off the court. I'm 💯 positive that the players feel the same way. Go Celtics 🍀

    Could this be the new era of Celtics reign?? It looks like this young Celtic team wants it more than the Cavs. If Lebron keeps on putting up these spectacular numbers he's going to burnout!! That's a fact!! Damn! Kyrie isn't even playing. Could this be a sweep? Let me know!! Belize representing!!

    This just proves Lebron is the only reason the Cavs even made the playoffs. He ( and I guess Love too) don't wanna get swept but the rest of team is straight up garbage its gonna take a miracle to turn this team around.

    If LeBron was replaced with mj the same thing would happen. The cavs team is just complete garbage. They're lucky they have the the best player in the league(arguably the goat) or else they wouldn't have made it to the playoffs

    I actually saw George Hill take advantage of the FEW opportunities he was given, he’s a great player. Lebron just sucks the ball in every possession and doesn’t allow his teammates to get on rolls. Opposite are the Celtics who move the ball and get a variety of open looks. This is just a signal that TEAM basketball is the new era and the two best ball movement teams in the league are about to play in the Finals.

    LeHelp scored 42 points. What more do you want from him? If he keeps up this pace, he won't have enough energy to compete with the Warriors. Kevin Love and JR Smith need to score some double-digit points.

    I wonder if Stephen A will thank LeBron publicly for providing him a living. Man would have nothing to his name without LeBron James getting him clicks and views. LeBron James is personally feeding this man, and Skip Bayless', families.
