    Not when Lebron played in the LEastern Conference for 9 of those & barely faced any stars/above-average offenses to make it there.

    They're one of the GOAT teams now.

    Four consecutive superbowl appearances has never been done. I guess they're one of the GOAT teams.

    GOAT conversations need to start with Finals MVP, since that goes to the best performing player on the championship winning team. Five players have 3 or more, Jordan 6, Magic 3, LeBron 3, Shaq 3 and Duncan 3. If there was one metric, that should be the one.

    You could have multiple rings, but was never the best player (Horry). You can have multiple MVPs but never even been to the Finals (Nash, Giannis).

    Russell would certainly have the most, no?

    They didn't start giving the award until 1969, which was the last year Russell won a chip. The FMVP went to Jerry West that year, even tho his team lost, which suggests Russell wasn't the star of that series.

    Russell was old in his last season. He would have won 8+ FMVP's if they were awarded during his career.
