Joy Taylor: “Alright, Eastern Conference Finals, Bucks vs. Celtics.”
Colin Cowherd: “They’ve split in the regular season. I like Boston. Boston has a better roster. I like Boston, I really do. Enes Kanter is capable of dropping 18-20. I got Gordon Hayward, I got Jayson Tatum, I got Jaylen Brown, I got Kemba Walker, and I got guys off the bench. I think Boston beats them. Khris Middleton is a ‘nice’ player, but I have yet to see him deliver consistently in the playoffs. I don’t trust him.” (Full Video Above)
Listen to Colin Cowherd make his 2020 NBA postseason predictions as Colin fills out his entire playoff bracket Live on The Herd.
One of the most noticeable picks Colin made was sending the Boston Celtics all the way to the NBA Finals, toppling the two best teams in the East, Toronto and Milwaukee, along the way.
Colin has been on record calling the Raptors ‘Fools Gold’ and saying that the Bucks are not a legitimate Finals team because of his disillusioned belief in Milwaukee guard Khris Middleton being a good enough player to be Giannis Antetokounmpo’s right-hand man.
Check out the video above as Colin details why he thinks the Celtics are the best team in the NBA, as Colin already raved about the improvements of Boston guard Jayson Tatum earlier this week.
