LeBron James and several of his fellow NBA Eastern Conference stars have been impressed with how the Celtics put together a star trio of Kevin Garnett, Ray Allen, and Paul Pierce in the offseason. James and Co., however, believe the jury is still out on whether the Celtics can immediately jell into an East power.
“You can’t say that right now,” said James, a three-time NBA All-Star. “They have enough talent to compete with everyone in the NBA. But you don’t know until you go out there and play a game.”
But Pistons star Billups thinks the East might still belong to Cleveland right now. “You got to go with Cleveland right now,” He said. “They won the East last year.”
