Nobody gives a horsefeathers about the Celtics or the Pacers or the Rockets except for shut-ins and maniacs. Yeah, the Cavs are almost certainly gonna get killed, but at least we'll probably get one amazing LeBron game, which is infinitely better than watching the nobody Raptors kind of sorta exist as a real team.
nah, seeing the Rockets vs. Cavs would've been good especially with a gimpy Paul
I wouldn't have minded that just because LeBron probably would have won that series, but the astronomical long shot of him inexplicably beating Warriors with this monstrous Cavs team is too good to pass up.
Most relatively realistic minor "upset" scenario for me is the Warriors go up 3-0, and then I want some herculean LeBron heroics to drag it to 3-2, putting the fear into the Warriors. Then game 6 is this bonkers back and forth and the Warriors just barely pull it off.
