Got to agree with this take. I haven’t seen anybody better at basketball than 2018 Lebron James. He was insane.

People don’t realize the garbage team he had and single handedly beating the East and almost stole game 1 from the most in prime All-Star team in the history of the NBA.

If I had the money I would put up billboards to trade Lebron. Anyone down to pool together some money to put one up similar to those "Stay D12" billboards back in 2013?

It probably wouldn't work. Dude wants to be in Hollywood and his son goes to school here. Golden State doesn't want him, so unless the Cavs do, which I highly doubt, he's here until that contract is up next year.

I didn't realize he traded Crowder, IT, Wade, Rose, Shumpert, Green etc for garbage? Poor guy.


Always the same type of excuses for this dude.

I’ve made it, fam. I’m now accused of making excuses for Lebron!

Don’t look at the names. If you watched those guys in 2018, they were absolute trash. Crowder, Clarkson and Rose found homes after 2018, while the others fell off a cliff.

Now if you want to say LeGM is the reason he had a trash roster, that is 100% true. He sucks as LeGM. So is it his own fault? Yes, that argument could be made.

Im sorry but the best basketball ever played should have been enough for more than needing 7 games for the Pacers, Kyrie/Hayward less Celtics, and a sweep in the finals. The Toronto series was impressive though.

James played great individually, but his roster wasnt trash. Love, Smith, Korver, Thompson, Green, Hill are all quality starters/role players. You could say he didnt have a co-star (Love is a allstar but no better than a 3 on a contender), but who did in that EC? Indiana had Oladipo as a lone star, plus good supporting cast. Boston had rookie Tatum and sophomore Brown around Horford who is no more than a 3 on a contender. A trash roster is what you can find around Kobe in 2006, or James same years. This was not the case.

It looked great and flashy with the big numbers and buzzer beaters, and had a great narrative, but did anyone expect any of those teams to eliminate Cleveland? Finals they stood little chance but up until then, it was not a challenge. Or atleast shouldnt be

Whatever plans the Lakers have for LeBron in the extension talk and the decision to do something would never be revealed this soon, yeah I know Jeanie loves LeBron and their very well could already be a decision to bring LeBron back next year even if he doesn’t commit to this franchise but it’s currently May right now and the Lakers would and should be tight lipped while the NBA playoffs are currently being played, their is still a full 5 months for this Organization to decide that the best course of action is to find LeBron a new destination.

I watched a lot of those games. To me, he carried a trash team that had no business even beating Indiana in round 1.

Others may disagree, but I thought Lebron willed that pile of trash that LeGM brought in.

The only person that mentioned Kobe was you, so looks like they affect you lebron disciples more than they do actual Laker fans.

Do you honestly trust to build around mercurial Kyrie? I wouldn't.

Cleveland was probably the nominal favorite because of the Lebron factor, but the east was considered pretty wide open that year (mostly because of the lack of talent on the Cavs after Lebron).

The Cavs were a 50-win team.

The Pacers won 48. Toronto won 59. The Celtics won 55.

So, the Cavs were facing higher seeded teams most of the playoffs.

AccurScore, which simulated the NBA playoffs thousands of times to calculate probabilities for each team to win its first-round series and advance to win the NBA Finals, correctly predicted the Warriors would win the finals that year. It was divided about the eastern teams chances of winning:

Golden State Warriors 33%
Houston Rockets 23%
Philadelphia 76ers 11%
Cleveland Cavaliers 10%
Toronto Raptors 9%
Boston Celtics 7%

It wouldn't have been a shock if the Cavs had been knocked out by Boston or Toronto.
