LeBron wants to face Celtics?

When the Cleveland Cavaliers  advanced to the Eastern Conference Finals this week, LeBron James  said he looks forward to playing either the Boston Celtics or the Orlando Magic  in the next round.
Brian Windhorst of the Cleveland Plain Dealer  believes otherwise:
But the more he talked, the more it became obvious that if James and the rest of the Cavs had their choice, they would choose a rematch with the defending champion Celtics  and not the Orlando Magic .
He said he’d seen every one of the Magic’s playoff games and talked about how difficult they are to defend with Dwight Howard  and his strong shooters. But there was an edge when James discussed the Celtics.
“We know everything about Boston; we have a history with them,” James said.
James considers last season Game 7 one of the most challenging he has ever played. Then the NBA’s MVP left his desire for a rematch up to interpretation.
“I’m a competitor; I thrive on going against the best,” James said. “I love playing against the best. You make your answer out of that.”
