I agree with Doc Rivers, but I also know he can't look past the Lakers, or the Thunder. The Celtics are built to beat the Heat. Does it mean the Celtics will beat them? No, but I say NO only because of potential injuries, and because of Paul and KG's age.
"Honestly, I don't care about the Lakers...I have my eye squarely on Miami. I come up to my players during the year-they're in the facility now-I bring up Miami every single day to them. I want them to hate them. I want them to beat them. That's gotta be our focus."
I love Doc's focus on the enemy. This team should hate Miami. They have what we all want, and they don't respect the Celtics, they never have. With Ray Allen carrying Lebron's bags now. The hate should be even higher. I understand why Doc doesn't care about the Lakers. Because their is no guarantee the Celtics will see them, and it's highly likely the Celtics will see the Heat for a third straight year, and it will be the 4th year in a row that James sees the Celtics in the playoffs.
Doc also spoke about KG's health. As expected KG is in fine shape.
