LeBron James is going to play in his 5th straight NBA Finals. Have to go back to the Celtics in the 1960s for the last time that happened.
LeBron on the verge of becoming the first player to appear in 5 straight NBA Finals since Bill Russell and the Celtics dynasty of the 1960's
As some have pointed out, LeBron has company as far as making 5 straight Finals (1st since 60s Celtics): James Jones too.
8 players have made 5 straight Finals -- all of them Celtics in 1950s/60s. Bill Russell holds the record, w/10 consecutive Finals (1957-66).
LeBron James will be the first player to play in five consecutive NBA Finals since the 1960s Boston Celtics: http://t.co/yGmv6G6NAB
Per Elias: LeBron will be first player to make 5 straight Finals since...the '60s Celtics. Bill Russell, Satch Sanders, KC Jones, Sam Jones
Dez Wells said he's worked out with the Boston Celtics
Lakers weren't ready to play back in 1985 in Game 1 vs. Celtics. They lost 148-114. Won Finals in 6 games. This is rule more than exception.
Memo to Chicago media & fans: LeBron and the Cavs are 7-0 vs. Hawks & Celtics this playoffs and 4-2 vs Bulls. No one in East can touch him.
Been so long since someone other than LeBron won the East that Lakers-Celtics were the Finals teams
1995-96 Bulls: 84-11; 1996-97 Bulls' 80-15; 1985-86 Celtics: 79-16; 1971-72 Lakers: 79-16; 1966-67 76ers: 79-16 ... and these 78-17 Warriors
LeBron would play 5 straight Finals. If I'm not wrong, only players from the legendary 60's Celtics have done that. http://t.co/HC63mPofne
Celtics pres Gotham on Crowder: "Jae is definitely a priority...He added toughness, energy & confidence. I think he gave our guys a swagger"
Celtics legend and broadcaster Cedric "Cornbread" Maxwell from WEEI gave Carmelo Anthony his one third-team vote, for those wondering.
Ha, at a Celtics stay-in-school event. Kid takes mic and asks Avery Bradley: "Do you think Rondo leaving the team was the best decision?"
Not a major surprise, but nobody on the Celtics received votes for the All-NBA teams.
