Normally in a year like this one, it wouldn’t be hard to talk up the NBA’s best rivalry. Look at the set-up for Lakers-Celtics on Saturday night: It’s got big names, with LeBron James and Anthony Davis taking on Kemba Walker, Jayson Tatum and Jaylen Brown. The two head coaches, Brad Stevens and Frank Vogel, are friendly enough to make the matchup a little personal. The teams are both in the upper echelon of their respective conferences, so one could feasibly surmise they could meet again in the ...
