words // Nick DePaula:
As the second day of the NBA Playoffs tipped off this morning, the Eastern Conference’s top two seeded teams opened their 1st Round series at home.
In Cleveland, we saw LeBron take the court for his first playoff game in five years as a Cavalier. He fittingly faced off against the Boston Celtics, the same franchise he last faced as a Cav in the 2010 Playoffs during his memorable Game 6 meltdown before bolting for Miami.
As expected, both LeBron and fellow Nike athlete Kyrie Irving laced up their signature models. James broke out his new $275 LeBron 12 Elite and Irving wore his Kyrie 1 in his playoff debut.
Check out the action from the Cavs / Celtics and Hawks / Nets games below, and stay tuned all afternoon for live feed updates from both west coast games.
