The injury gods have almost always been on Lebron's side. Whenever his team falls down in a series, the gods find a way to benefit his team, whether it's the 2013 or the 2016 Finals. How convenient for Lebron in 2017 that IT has a hip injury after an MVP-like season and loses his sister right at the start of the Playoffs. How convenient for Lebron that Derrick Rose goes from an MVP to a role player when it seemed like they would be fighting for titles for the next decade.
