Lakers superstar LeBron James shut everyone up with a massive bombshell when asked about the Eastern Conference‘s moves at Thursday’s trade deadline.
“Those top teams in the East, yeah, they’re going for it,” James said. “Toronto is going for it, Milwaukee’s going for it, Philly. Boston believes they can do it, too. They know they ain’t gotta go through Cleveland anymore. Everybody in the East thinks they can get to the Finals because they ain’t gotta go through me.”
James has participated in every NBA Finals this decade so far. He was part of the team who ended Boston’s Big 3 era, destroyed Rose’s Bulls, held off PG’s Pacers, and gave the title back to Boston again, handing them their only home loss of the 2018 playoffs in Game 7 of the Eastern Conference Finals.
At this point last year, many wrote off the Cavaliers when they were getting blown out by teams they were far better than, and rumors started swirling around the team ahead of the NBA’s trade deadline. But then LeBron hit a buzzer-beater over Jimmy Butler to turn their season around.
Pretty similar to what Rajon Rondo did to Celtics, striking an improbable buzzer-beater to cap wild finish in Boston.
The 68th edition of the NBA All-Star Game is taking place on February 18 in Charlotte when team LeBron James will take on team Giannis Antetokounmpo. The teams will include players voted for by fans, players and media.
