Brad Stevens knows what's ahead of Celtics in LeBron James, Cavs

Former Cleveland Cavaliers general manager David Griffin explained how his former star forward once was casually telling Raptors players how to run their own plays, as he swept them out of the playoffs last season.

Kyrie Irving left for the Boston Celtics a year ago because he was not allowed to be the Scottie Pippen to LeBron James' Michael Jordan according to former Cleveland Cavaliers general manager David Griffin.

Kevin Love scored 21 and Kyle Korver added 18 for the Cavs, and despite a late fightback from the Raptors in the fourth quarter, Cleveland and James proved too good to put the Cavaliers a game away from securing a spot in the Eastern Conference finals. That addition to James' arsenal may have been pulled from Irving's playbook, Griffin believes. And it wasn't about being the man-it's: 'How good can I be?

Thunder star George has successful left knee surgery
Despite missing only three games all season, George was hit with a number of minor injuries in addition to the knee soreness. In the meantime, George is looking to get right and ready for next season, which apparently means having knee surgery.

"There's literally nothing you can show him that he can't do", Griffin said. What am I capable of? He wanted a chance to do it on a good team. That's something that is hard to define but it's one of those "I know it when I see it" deals and it's not hard to see it with LeBron on the offensive end. LeBron can make all the passes; he doesn't need me to do that.

The Celtics defeated the Philadelphia 76ers in Game 5 on Wednesday night to seal passage to the Eastern Conference Finals where they will now meet the Cavaliers.

The victor of the Celtics-Cavs series will face the victor of the Golden State Warriors-Houston Rockets series in the NBA Finals. In this season's series he averaged an astounding 34.0 points, 11.3 assists, and 8.3 rebounds per game.
