Isola: Win in Boston ‘one of most satisfying’ of LeBron’s career

LeBron James' reaction to watching Dwyane Wade hit a gamewinning shot on television in Miami interrupted Rodney Hood's postgame interview Tuesday night.

The retooled James Gang sent a resounding message to not only Kyrie Irving and the Boston Celtics, but also to the entire Eastern Conference, with their 121-99 dump-trucking of the Celtics on Sunday at TD Garden.

So says columnist Frank Isola of the New York Daily News.

“The Celtics currently own the second-best record in the conference,” he writes. “And this butt kicking took place before Paul Pierce’s jersey retirement ceremony, with a few adversaries from (LeBron) James’ past, Kevin Garnett, Rajon Rondo and Doc Rivers, sitting baseline adjacent to the Celtics bench.

This wasn’t just a terrific statement victory for the new-look Cavs. It will go down as one of the most satisfying regular season wins of LeBron’s career.

Isola said the Cavaliers did what was necessary before the trade deadline Thursday.

“The Cavs had to do something, especially with James, who is in the final year of his contract, going through the motions,” he said. ” The Cavs needed a change because they had to change LeBron’s attitude. Cleveland has won its last three games and James has played like the self-proclaimed best player on the planet.”

  1. Frank isola of the NY daily news and Haley O’Shaughnessy of the ringer both write that LeBron hurt his ankle. Anyone who watched the game saw him bang his knee. Amateurs.
