    the 09' Magic were one of the biggest underdogs to ever win a playoff series when they upset the 1-seeded Cavs, and those Magic were a 1-star team that was missing their all-star PG, Jameer Nelson (Dwight carried the AND1 point guard to the Finals, aka Skip to My Lou).. This is significant because Dwight, Kidd and Iverson won the conference with 1-star teams, yet Lebron formed a super-team to ensure Finals runs after his favored 1 seeds couldn't make it in 09' or 10' - that's the definition of manufacturing a resume. So Lebron is a fraud that only learned to team-hop - he never learned to WIN (organic), which requires superior skill of adjusting one's game to teammates and developing championship strategy/brand of ball over many years.. If a guy like Giannis learns to win this year (organic), then he will already be superior to Lebron or KD, who only learned to team-hop.

    He didnít choke away game 1 of 2018 Finals. He quit. Also quit on his entire young core roster in 2019. AD saves them in 2020, and is their best player. He then quits again on his team while ahead in a playoff series in 2021. Quitting is a re-occurring theme with this loser.

    I understand Dwight kinda turned himself into a meme, but damn he’s getting underrated these days. He never had the ‘best’ numbers but prime Dwight was a monster.

    Many people bring that up.http://espn.go.com/nba/story/_/id/89...michael-jordan

    Comparing LeBron to Jordan

    ADANTE:

    Jordan's six-game stretch in 1990 when he went for 46 points a night on 60 percent shooting, with 10 rebounds and five and a half assists per game.

    Jordan remains the standard, Bryant his surrogate to provide an approximation of how intense a competitor he was, in case anyone forgot.

    What seems even sillier, in retrospect, was the doubt that once existed about whether Michael could win a championship. Most folks either don't know or have forgotten, but for the early part of his career the narrative was "Jordan is too much of a ball hog to win a championship." Before he did it in 1991, no one had won a scoring title and a championship in the same year since Kareem Abdul-Jabbar in 1971, so the prevailing wisdom was you couldn't do both. Michael did it six times. And he did it without an All-Star center, something else that wasn't common before he came along.

    So Jordan not only changed the way we thought of him, but he changed what we considered to be the path to a championship. LeBron has the chance to do both, as well. He already has eradicated the notion that he can't win the big games. And maybe the new paradigm for a championship player will be a guy who can bring the ball upcourt, operate in the low post, score from any spot and defend multiple positions. (Yeah, good luck trying to find another one of those.)

    The nagging question is why it took LeBron so long to embrace his responsibilities in crunch time.

    Jordan appeared ready-made for it. He hit the NCAA championship game-winning shot as a freshman at North Carolina. In his second NBA year, he dragged that historically great 1985-86 Boston Celtics squad that won 37 more regular-season games than his Bulls into overtime by scoring 63 points in the Garden.

    And what I consider a telltale stat: He never lost a playoff series when he had home-court advantage. LeBron lost with home-court advantage three years in a row. LeBron also has a losing record in the NBA Finals that he needs to rectify.

    LeBron also had a very weak frontcourt compared to the Lakers who had two seven footers making Howards life hell down low. They also had a lot more length and defensive versatility. Cleveland on the other hand had to resort to having West guard Hedo. That's a 7 inch height difference.

    The Orlando Magic simply matched up a lot better against Cleveland. It had nothing to do with LeBron's performance in that series, which was total dominance btw.

    I was watching highlights of game 2, i see delonte sometimes guarding him but mostly 6'6 Pavlovic & Varejao.

    Lebron was getting his but kicked by Rashard, even guarding Courtney Lee at times when his father in law was guarding Hedo. And again you see him going under the screen (not even a screen just followed the screener going for the rebound?) at the end of the third when Hedo's dribbling at the top leaving him wide open for a three.

    I suggest not watching highlights and instead watching the full games if available. LeBron did get routinely lit up Lewis in this game, but did a better job of staying up on him in later games. For the most part though, Rashards height proved to be too much.
