He should have been Jesus and healed Kyrie and Love's injuries in 2015.

He's clearly a choker for not being able to do shaman stuff.

Why not?

What do they have to lose? They have lost to the Warriors 8 times out of 9. It's not working, try something different. Even the Pelicans were able to get a game from the Warriors this year.

Play defense and lead the team by example in that half of the game.
Bran Ball is 3-12 in these 3 finals, 1-8 against KD-GSW

A so called GOAT would win more finals, regardless...especially with the easy path he always has.

Twist it like that though, Bron stans are good at manipulating everything to suit their agenda.

LeBron is the equivalent of 3-0 in the West. No better. That's why LeBron ranking higher than Kobe and Tim is cringing.

Stop being a ballhog for starters. Other teammates cant get into a groove without ball movement. Quite simple really.

2015: Curry struggled for a game or two but Lebron's defence and shot fell off a cliff in the games they lost, especially when Iggy guarded him. Like a poster said already, maybe he should have shot better than 25% outside of 3 feet against a roleplayer?

2017: Defense.

2018: Defense.

Lebron does not play defense anymore. At all. And even more so when KD has the ball. He flat-out refuses to guard him. Meanwhile KD has blocked him on several occasions already.

Kevin Love damn near had a conniption when Durant made a fade-away shot over him in Game 3. Held his head in his hands and almost burst into tears on the court. Lebron then decided to let Rodney Hood guard him instead?

Anyone that says that Lebron couldn't have done more in those Finals are fooling themselves. Everyone could have done better, in series that players have won they could have done more and played better.

LeBron averaged 31/15/9/1 on 39% shooting in those three losses. If you disregard the horrific game 4, dude put up 36/16/10/2 on 42% in the finals two losses. This was a 58 win Cavs team playing a 67 win Warriors team. Oh, and the Cavs were missing two of their best players, while the Warriors were 100% healthy.

I mean, you're expecting a team with LeBron/Love/Hill/TT/Korver/JR/etc. to beat a superteam with the DPOY, 2 MVP's, All-NBA, and a FMVP? You're an idiot if you do.

There hasn't been a player in the history of the sport who could replace LeBron on the '17/'18 squads and won the title. Literally none.

What a long way to say “LeBron needs more help”
