2010 NBA Playoffs: It’s Okay To Root for Boston in This Scenario

May 5th, 2010 by Leslie Monteiro Leave a reply »

New Yorkers never root for Boston to do well in sports.

It's a rule that goes back to the historic rivalry of the Yankees and the Red Sox. It will always be the way of life here.

With that said, let's break this rule for at least couple of weeks. There's nothing to be ashamed of when one looks at the impact the Celtics can have in the summer of 2010.

Rooting for the Celtics to beat the Cavaliers is a civic duty. It's the only way LeBron James will don a Knicks uniform.

It's not fun to do it for the short-term, but in the long-term, it will pay dividends.

In November, your friendly writer wrote that James will be a Knick in July 2010. He had a change of heart few months ago when he said it's a lost cause to get James.

Right now, it's 50-50. If the Cavaliers go to the NBA Finals, James is staying. Make no mistake though. If the Cavaliers lose to Boston, he is leaving Cleveland.
