Cleveland Cavaliers forward LeBron James spoke to media on Monday, following their 113-100 victory over the Boston Celtics on Sunday.
Sunday's game against Boston would be the first time the Cavaliers played in a playoff game since 2010 and the first playoff game for multiple players on the team, including Kevin Love and Kyrie Irving.
"Just to be out there and see the way he approached the game, his ability to shoot the ball, his ability to make plays, he wasn't rattled at all, he played an excellent game." James said about Irving's first playoff game.
LeBron also talked about climbing up the rankings among the all-time greats, where LeBron said, "I think just games played means a lot, if I'm able to pass some people in games played that means obviously I've done some pretty good things and to be able to have my team and being a part of the post season, it's the best time of basketball as far as our league and I think last night was like 130 plus for me, I'm very pleased with that and very humbled by it at the same time."
James scored 20 points, 7 assist, and 6 rebounds in the Game 1 against the Celtics. Game 2 will be played on Tuesday night at Quicken Loans Arena.
