Lebron Leads The Cavs To Another Eastern Conference Finals

Published

on

The Toronto Raptors spent most of the season as the number 1 team in the East Conference. Their dreams of making it to Eastern Conference finals were ended again at hands of Lebron James. The Raptors were swept in the series against the Cavs after a game 4 blow out 128-93.

James has now made it to 10 conference finals in 12 years. Lebron gave all of the credit to his teammates for the win.

“As everyone was burying my teammates alive throughout that first-round series, I was just telling them, ‘Listen, we can’t win without each and every one doing their job and being as great as they can be,'” James said. “I continue to preach that. It’s impossible for me to lose confidence in our ballclub, no matter what the stakes are or what we’re down.”

As for the Raptors, the writing is on the wall that team will have to reset their roster.

“You’re looking at probably one of the guys that’s going to go down as one of the greatest ever, and it’s a matchup nightmare for anybody,” Raptors coach Dwane Casey said. “We’ve seen it with Michael [Jordan], we’ve seen it with Kobe [Bryant], we’ve seen it with a lot of great players … for whatever reason, we got the unlucky draw every year, going against him.”
