    Default How is it even possible to lose to Dwight Howard in a series with HCA?

    How is it even possible to lose to Dwight Howard in a series with HCA?

    The guy hadn't beaten anyone in a series of notable value. He also played with Kobe and Harden and never won anything. How could you lose to him when he is the main star?

    Dwight dropped 40/14 on 67%FG while LeQuit had 25 in Game 6. Let's not forget the two straight turnovers & a missed FT late in the 4th in Game 4 that set up the loss in OT to put Orlando up 3 - 1. Funniest part is that Dwight hit the two clutch FTs and blocked James late in OT to ice the game. That series is a straight up sweep without the fluke clutch 3-pointer in Game 2.

    No they weren't that good, people were thinking they would lose to the Iggy Sixers in round 1. Also they didn't even have Jameer Nelson.

    Kobe, Pau & the lakers made quick work of them.

    Bran had a 66 win team and got his ass kicked.

    Lakers should have swept them if not for Kobe going 5/10 from the FT + Gasol turning the ball over on a potential game-winner in Game 3. They were decent, and would have probably given the Lakers a tougher fight if not for Jameer coming off injury, he didn't play a single minute against the Cavs and returned for the Finals on limited minutes.

    Na he had a decent coach and good enough team there's no excuse really. Bron was still learning how to be a champion. He had to leave and spend a year with a proven champion to really figure it out and now that he has he's one of the best ever.

    The **** you talking about?

    The Magic won 59 games while the 76ers won 41. No sane person thought the 76ers had a chance.

    But the main reason why LeBron lost was because the role players on the Magic far outplayed the Cavs role players.

    You can argue that he underperformed in game 6, but the rest of the series he was awesome. 41ppg on 53%efg over 5 playoff games against a 59 win team with the #1 defense in the league is impressive by anyone's standards.

    But at the end of the day, he was 24 years old. At the same age Jordan had just been swept in the first round again, culminating in his now legendary 1-9 playoff record without Pippen.

    Dwight Howard was younger than Lebron and beat him without HCA and Dwight Howard is a career loser. Lebron was the MVP and lost to a guy who never won MVP with HCA. Again Lebron lost with HCA and had Ben Wallace as well the only guy on a team that was an allstar that won it all.

    Get your facts straight.

    This whole 1-9 thing is just a joke. Judging MJ in his first 3 seasons in the league, when he played either a great Bucks team (1985) or the GOAT tier Celtics team (1986 & 1987). MJ balled out in all those series. He had no help.

    This was LeBron's 6th NBA season with the 1st seed. Completely different circumstances.

    Who cares about MJ we are talking about Dwight Howard beating Lebron. Hell even when Lebron played with Dwight he won bronze medal. This dude led America to two bronze medals. Name should be Lebronze.
