    No one is saying it's a problem. They are saying it's a testament to LeBron that it took THAT kind of a team to beat him.

    LeBron's legacy is just fine. The guy averaged a triple double in the finals ffs. What more is he supposed to do?

    Yes. They couldn't stop him when he would take it to the hole. He could have done more of that.

    But the thought that being 3-5 inthe finals somehow taints his legacy, I don't buy. Dude is all world and right up there with Jordan as far as I'm concerned.

    I've been saying that for years. He should not expend energy bring the ball up the court. He should get the ball at the high post at least 15 times a game.

    Nobody said it was a problem. I don't care about them building a superteam.

    But it benefits Lebron's legacy when you see that Golden State had to go and add one of the best players in NBA History to an already great team in order to beat Lebron.

    Exactly, Golden State has two league MVP's on their team. The last time that happened was Kareem and Magic.

    To some extent yes. But im not sure how beneficial it was to his legacy personally. The NBA is far more watered down now in my opinion to how it was 20 years ago. LeBron has benefitted a lot from a very weak conference. Not even sure it stops there, Lebron basically did the same thing when he went to Miami.

    It's been recently published that all 8 teams LeBron has faced in the finals had a higher net playoff efficiency than the best team Jordan ever beat in the Finals. So even if a "watered down" league has helped him get to the finals, he's had a WAY tougher road than Jordan in the actual finals.

    The best team he faced in the east after 1992 was led by Patrick Ewing and John Starks. I'm not buying at all that that was all that hard of a test.

    I'm not sure how that can be true or accurate given that LeBron's Cavs team this year had the highest payroll of ANY team in the NBA, while the Warriors had the 7th highest payroll. As the de facto GM for the Cavs, LeBron essentially assembled the Cavs teams since returning to the Cavs so if what you say is true, then LeBron has only himself to blame. Moreover, LeBron's Heat teams were almost always favored to win the NBA Championship.
    Too bad she doesn't cheer for the Patriots dressed like this

    False.

    James has been to the Finals eight times, six of those as the Vegas underdog. Give that poker hand to anyone else in NBA history and see how many come up with three titles. See how many more could've been so statistically dominant in defeat as James has been.

    The next sentence in that story is also telling.

    We constantly hear about Jordan being a spotless 6-0 in the Finals, but we don't hear that Jordan was 6-7 in getting to the Finals in his 13 postseasons, and James is now 8-4 in his 12 postseasons.

    People whose only argument is "6-0 in finals" aren't really intelligent enough to have this discussion with.
