    Yawn.

    First off this series is far from over. Game 1 hasn't even been completed yet. If the winner of this title isn't legit, what does that say about all the teams that failed? The champion isn't legit, so who would win the title in a normal year? The Clippers? The Bucks? So in a normal playoffs all their problems would be fixed? Give me a break.

    Half of the league that was elgible for a playoff run literally didn't even want to be there.

    Nobody was dying to win the title this year except for LeBron.

    All it took for success in this years playoffs is literally WANTING IT...

    The Suns heard disrespect for literally being looked at as a throw in, they literally WILLED their way to an undefeated record.

    The Heat weren't really hot shit all year. They get to the bubble and just off the fact that Jimmy Butler cares more than most... that got his team to the Finals when just last year he couldn't WILL his team to the Finals as the 3rd/4th best player on the Sixers.

    Because in every other year, pretty much the whole league cares. You cannot simply make it to the Finals most year by just simply caring.

    Thats what happened this year.

    Most of these up and coming teams that will be good for a long time didn't really have any urgency and were just happy to be back doing playoff things and just being involved in a playoff run (Celtics, Nuggets, Mavericks, Sixers, etc)

    Clippers literally couldn't wait to get back to LA and couldn't really motivate themselves to win such a charade of a title.

    As did most teams.

    But an aging LeBron who hasn't played playoff ball in 2 yrs and is really getting the most pressure-less chance at a 4th title...

    LeBron clearly sees a title that has the perfect storm of situational BS that feels handmade for a player in LeBron's situation to capitalize in.

    Ill tell u what..

    Ill give LeBron credit for caring more than the other teams.. but considering that a strong majority of the league didn't show up to stay at all... I can't pretend like this title provided any sort of actual challenge for a champion other than staying self-motivated.. and when you have more incentives to win this ring more than anyone else, how self motivated can you really claim to be...?

    The most unimpressive ring of all time if we're being quite honest.

    Did your psychologist advise you to create this thread to let it all out in order to cope with the pain?

    No crowds to influence
    Everyone well rested, playing their best

    This is a tougher ring to earn.
