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.

Tommy Beer

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

Howard Beck

Fair, but lets not overlook that there were only NINE NBA teams when the Celtics did it in the 1960s. twitter.com/YaseenManan/st…

Ethan J. Skolnick

As some have pointed out, LeBron has company as far as making 5 straight Finals (1st since 60s Celtics): James Jones too.

Howard Beck

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).

Baxter Holmes

LeBron James will be the first player to play in five consecutive NBA Finals since the 1960s Boston Celtics: http://t.co/yGmv6G6NAB

Chris Herring

Wow. RT @Howard Beck: LeBron will be 1st player to make 5 straight Finals since the 60s Celtics. Russell, Satch Sanders, KC Jones, Sam Jones

Howard Beck

Per Elias: LeBron will be first player to make 5 straight Finals since...the '60s Celtics. Bill Russell, Satch Sanders, KC Jones, Sam Jones

Chris Forsberg

It’s draft workout season, so you’ll be hearing plenty about the Boston Marathon — the Celtics' famous sprint drill: es.pn/1IYzMX9

Buck Harvey

Bill Russell’s Celtics Were Great. Tim Duncan's Spurs Have Been Better. 53eig.ht/1KxbC6p

Quixem Ramirez

Interesting tidbit from @NateSilver538's piece: Spurs would have 10 titles if they were in a 10-team league like Russell's Celtics.

Kurt Helin

Danny Ainge consulted with Celtics’ guard Isaiah Thomas about potential free agents dlvr.it/9yvgcf

Matt Steinmetz

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.

Frank Isola

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.

Jorge Sierra

Isaiah Thomas feels part of the Celtics' future. shar.es/1rOBs3 http://t.co/ECTcHxdljD

In the @BostonGlobe: Isaiah Thomas wants to be 1 of the Celtics' lead recruiters in free agency. He shared his pitch: bostonglobe.com/sports/2015/05…

Ethan Strauss

Been so long since someone other than LeBron won the East that Lakers-Celtics were the Finals teams

Marc Stein

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

Maybe we should ask...Is there anyone that the Celtics are NOT interested in? #Celtics

Adam Himmelsbach

Celtics pres Gotham on Crowder: "Jae is definitely a priority...He added toughness, energy & confidence. I think he gave our guys a swagger"

Rich Levine

Here's a story about three former Celtics with three very different legacies: ow.ly/NfjVH

Adi Joseph

Celtics legend and broadcaster Cedric "Cornbread" Maxwell from WEEI gave Carmelo Anthony his one third-team vote, for those wondering.

Adam Himmelsbach

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?"

Jay King

Not a major surprise, but nobody on the Celtics received votes for the All-NBA teams.

Kurt Helin
