23 LeBRON JAMES
29.7 ppg | 8.6 apg

What more can you say about the King, except that he is still looking for a ring . . . The only thing that can stop him this round is his ailing right elbow . . . He averaged 36.5 points in four games against the Celtics this season . . . Tony Allen, Paul Pierce, and the lightly used Marquis Daniels will have their hands full.

4 ANTAWN JAMISON
18.7 ppg | 8.4 rpg

The Cavaliers picked up the 11-year veteran from the rebuilding Wizards in the hopes he would be the second option . . . The big question? Can he withstand the pressure of this stage?

33 SHAQUILLE O’NEAL
12 ppg | 6.7 rpg

The man with many nicknames proclaimed when he arrived in Cleveland he would get “a ring for the King.’’ . . . This is why the Cavaliers got him — a big body to keep Kendrick Perkins at bay . . . Limited to 53 games . . . At 38, can he summon up one final championship run?

2 MO WILLIAMS
15.8 ppg | 5.3 apg

The point guard believes he is an All-Star, and a viable second option, however, his postseason history has been sketchy . . . He has the ability to take over games, but also has the ability to disappear. Will have his hands full guarding the quick Rajon Rondo.

17 ANDERSON VAREJAO
8.6 ppg | 7.6 rpg
The fifth-year big man provides energy from the bench with his hustling and defensive intensity that sometimes gets in the heads of opponents.

13 DELONTE WEST
8.8 ppg | 3.3 apg

The former Celtic is an enigma; he has the potential to be an outside threat or he can disappear like Williams. If both players go cold, the Cavaliers will be in trouble.
