Watch two teams you hate play each other

LeBron James is back in the Eastern Conference Finals. Yawn. The Boston Celtics look to keep James and his Cleveland Cavaliers from returning to the NBA Finals. This comes fresh off the heels of the Celtics winning the No. 1 overall pick in the NBA draft after the NBA Draft Lottery. Yuck.

I don’t know about you, but I find it impossible to root for either of these teams. That being said, I can’t help myself but tune in to see Isaiah Thomas vs. Kyrie Irving. Will Al Horford and his teammates be able to keep James’ band of merry 3-point shooters (Kevin Love, Channing Frye, JR Smith, Kyle Korver) in check?

The Cavs seems unstoppable and despite being the No. 1 seed the Celtics have not had many people who really believe they can make the finals. I guess we’ll find out.
