King in the East: An impressive 8-year run
 
A taste of the Eastern Conference without LeBron James just goes to show how dominant his epic 8-year reign truly was. It's wide open now.

Who will be the next to rule the East for 8-years? Giannis? Kawhi? Embiid? Durant (if he goes to the Knicks)?

Jordan ruled the East for 3 years in a row, which was impressive for the weak 90s era but LeBron was able to rule his conference for 8 years straight.

King in the East



Will we ever see a King rule a conference like this again? Is it even possible? Fathomable?

Only lebron teamed up with 2 other stars, so only he made a bunch of Finals

09' Dwight would've made a bunch if he teamed up with Wade and Bosh - but dwight MADE the Finals that year, so he didn't see the need to team-hop

And lebron only beat the West 3 times (3/9), so that proves he'd make 3 Finals in a career out West and his Finals appearances are conference-dependant

Actually he had 2 perennial all-stars, an equal-scoring teammate and closer

and it was only 1 win in 4 tries, so worse than the odds predicted (underachievement)

LeBron unlocked star potential in Kyrie. Kyrie these past couple year has proven that he is not a star. Only LeBron can unlock that potential in him. MJ unfortunately couldn't do the same with Pippen's offense because of his need to score an arbitrary number higher than his 2nd option.

Jordan went to 6 Finals in 8 years (interrupted by that retirement/baseball thingy) but won 6 in 8 years...

LeBron went to 8 straight Finals and didn't nab not even a 50% win rate :(

So Jordan grabbed double the titles LeFraud got going to 2 less Finals? :wtf:

At this rate, LeCollude needs to go to 9 more Finals to equal MJ's chip total...:lol
