Disappeared? LBJ was better statistically in last year's playoffs in every facet of the game. In fact, if LBJ had played like Kobe did against OKC, they would've lost to the Bulls in the first round. It's easy to forget that he played horribly because they still won. That's a luxury that the Lakers provide. Did you forget about game 7 of the finals? Kobe had a worse game there than LBJ has ever had in the playoffs. Easy to forget when you see him hoisting the championship trophy though, eh? Eh, well, the Celtics are obviously a very solid team when they need to be. Losing to the Cavs the next day is just the type of team they've been for the last few years, though. It will cost them home court in the playoffs because they just don't bring it every night. Come playoff time, they should be there provided they don't have any injuries, though. On the other hand, the ceiling for the Heat would put them in a different category than the Celtics. If the Heat play like they did against Orlando, they'll be champions. Of course, they still have a lot of room for improvement, especially on offense.
