Celtics Game 7 Superlatives
Game 7 is upon us, and everyone in New England is freaking out! Our first chance to go to the Finals since 2010 is just one Lebron James excuse away from actually happening.
Now, you all know the details of the season, the injuries and everything else, so let's hit Game 7 from a new angle. Since this is the time of year a lot of high school seniors start picking up their yearbooks, let’s play Celtics Superlatives:
J.R. Smith. After Game 2, this shouldn't surprise anyone with his flagrant foul on Al Horford that had the Garden erupt in profanity.
Say it with me, LEBRON JAMES!
Or maybe he'll pretend he doesn't care, seeing we all know he's leaving Cleveland AGAIN!
Jayson Tatum and Jaylen Brown. These two have really stepped up as soon as Gordon Hayward went down in the season opener, and especially after Kyrie went down later in the season.
Larry Nance, Jr. I know a lot of people are like, "Who?" Exactly. That's a real X-Factor with Kevin Love out.
Marcus Smart. Also probably the best flopper ever (you'll probably see some of that tonight, if Coach Brad Stevens lets him try to be a scorer --please don't, Coach!) If he attacks the basket in any way and doesn't get a call, be sure to watch him closely. I promise, it'll end up turning into a comedy show, seeing how he always complains when there's hardly ever a foul.
