While the Boston Celtics seem focused on the team in front of them in a potential closeout game in the East finals, at least one member of the team that won the West finals already has his sights set on the Celtics. After his Golden State Warriors beat the Dallas Mavericks to clinch a spot in the 2022 NBA Finals, center Draymond Green was asked by “Inside the NBA” host Shaquille O’Neal which team coming out of the East he’d like to play.

Green attempted the diplomatic reply, but Shaq kept the heat on (pun intended) until the Dubs star relented and said “You’re asking me who I want to play, I’m going to tell you who I think we’re going to play,” said Green.

“We’re going to play Boston, okay?” he added. “That’s who we’re going to play.”

While it might be too early to say for certain that the Warriors big man has the matchup right, the star power and styles of play would indeed make for an exiting series pitting a rising force in the East against the West’s signature dynasty of the last decade.

But the Celtics need to win one more game against the Miami Heat first.
