    Kobe, from '08-10, beat 10 50+ win teams. It took LeBron 13 seasons to beat 10 50+ win teams.

    Except they didn't beat a healthy 73-win team.

    After going down 1 - 3

    No Green for Game 5 (their best player in the series)
    Bogut injured in Game 5 and out for the rest of the series
    Iguodala injured in Game 6 and played hurt in Game 7

    73-win team my ass, the 73-win team at full strength went up 3 - 1, only Adam Silver and injury gods could have made it possible.

    Yeah

    Finals are hard to get to. Durability is important

    Were the Cavs "healthy" in 2015? (Irving, Love)
    Were the Spurs in 2017? (Kawhi)
    Were the Rockets in 2018? (CP3)

    Were the Celtics in 2018, 2017? (IT, Irving & Hayward)
    Were the Bulls in 2015?(Gasol)
    Were the Spurs in 2013? (Parker)

    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.

    fair he's been lucky. I dont think you should bring up Gasol in 2015 for missing a few games and playing injured when Love didnt even play the series however. Also what about Bosh in 2012? Legitimately the main reason the Heat didnt dominate eastern conference teams like "they should have with their talent" that year.

    You're a fool

    Bosh in 2013?
    Wade in 2014?
    Kyrie and Love in 2015?
    Love in 2018?

    What a fool...LeBron has always battled with injured players on his team

    2015 is the only legitimate case you can make for Lebron.

    Wade was affected by injuries throughout multiple playoff runs but sure.

    Love was hurt in 2016 for what it
