    Default Lebron was 1-3 vs Warriors, so he would rarely make Finals out West in Luka's spot

    Finals appearances are conference-dependant, so winning the Finals is all that matters because it means you would've made Finals regardless of conference.

    1-star teams were enough to win the East, but Lebron always needed a super-team to beat the best teams (West)

    Lebron is actually 0-4 vs Warriors if we exclude teammate bailouts. Luka doesn't have Kyrie to be an equal-scoring partner to attract equal defensive attention and CLOSE..

    LeBron beat a better version of this Warriors team while leading every player in every statistical category.

    Luka would probably beat these Warriors with a super-team half the time too.. Anyone would.. And the 16' Warriors only had 1 go-to player, while these Warriors have 3 plus Klay and are therefore far superior.

    These Warriors are also championship veterans have been through wars and dominate, while the 16' Warriors were babies with bed-wetting Curry & Klay (22 and 16 ppg).. Heck, Kawhi beat a dominant Curry/Klay (31 and 26 ppg).

    And Lebron' had an equal-scoring partner to attract equal defensive attention, and therefore never defeated maximum defensive attention (never carried scoring load in Finals)..

    Both Curry & Klay were better in 2016.

    Curry sadly is past his prime, he played great last night, but this has been Curry's worst individual season since like 2013. He still gets a ton of defensive attention and has good games here and there, but his shot making ability is not what it once was.

    Your stuff is getting more attention-seeking by the day. Guess that’s what happens when you need to be noticed but it’s the playoffs

    I wouldn't say that. Curry, Klay and Dray are basically the same. Wiggins is way better than Harrison Barnes. Poole is way better than Shaun Livingston. Otto Porter is equal to iggy.

    Not adding up.

    Plus LeBron needed dray suspended in game 5 on a bogus retroactive application and curry fouled out in game 6. Silver set the stage for a game 7 series as first year commissioner for the ratings and money.

    Overall? LeBron got his ass kicked vs the warriors in the playoffs. He's 7-15 vs them in the playoffs with some of the biggest blowouts ever. I think the regular season might even be worse record wise.

    Only Draymond is playing at a similar level, but his shooting was better in 2016.

    One team went 73-9.

    Not adding up.

    Always gotta love when someone says something stupid right at the beginning of a longer post. Saves a lot of time.

    Curry averaged 22 ppg in the 2016 Finals being guarded by jr smith and kyrie. He's averaging 27/6/5 on better efficiency in this years playoffs. Tell us more about how he was better in that series.

    Curry and Klay are both averaging more points on better efficiency in this years playoffs than in the 2016 Finals. Welcome to reality my friend.

    See my reply to shawk. Curry and klay have better numbers in this years playoffs than the 2016 Finals and it's not particularly close. You guys need a fact check.

    LeBron was not the primary defender on either. Ironically he was assigned to guard dray and dray had the best offensive series of his career in the 2016 Finals.

    So was Lebron the best player in the world in 2015 then?

    I just feel like if you’re going to say something ridiculous it’s better to put it at the end so that people have to read your entire post first.

    I stopped reading after your second sentence.
