Lebron has never lost in the First Round of the playoffs
 
Lebron's been in the playoffs 7 times and has advanced past Round 1 every single time.

This does not mean too much, as he has missed the playoffs before, and missing the playoffs is not better than making the playoffs and losing in the first round. But hey, it is interesting to me and we still have 25 days until opening day.




So, name me another franchise player who has never lost in the first round of the playoffs (and has been there at least 7 times).

Yep, and Melo is 1 for 6 or something.

Which makes it all the more impressive to be 7 for 7.

Edit: Correction, Melo is 1 for 9.

He's also 1-3 in Finals appearances. Potentially to be 1-4 this season if they play LA.

Stop and think about what you're saying. Most players don't GET to the finals in the first place. And what happened in his last finals appearance?

PS: Fvck Lebron.

I'm just saying he's not particularly reliable in terms of "finishing the job". Anyway, he just got a 'chip and is probably going to feel a lot more comfortable with himself and his game. I think if he loses again in the Finals it will hurt his legacy for sure.

Did you forget that he didn't make the playoffs his first 2 seasons in the league, or does that swept under the rug here?

You should re-read the original post. He states that he has missed the playoffs entirely.
