Makes a big difference when you don't have a guy who can physically matchup with him.

Dont think that is the Reason as there is KNOWBODY that can Physically match up with him.. Lebron is the Only person that can slow Lebron down.. if he is in a good Place and feeling confident(especially with Jumper) he is Unstoppable.

I expect Lebron at home to feel even more confident and comfortable translating to even better Numbers.

His strength is getting into the paint and finishing. OKC has the length to guard him but he has the skill to get past anyone they have. Even if he's not blowing past you, he has the strength needed to finish. When he drives, he's either gonna score, pass to an open guy, or get fouled. He's doing all 3 of those at critical moments in the game and it's working. Why switch to shooting jumpers?

So it wasn't Dallas or San Antonio that stopped Lebron in his first two Finals, it was himself?

You are talking like any of those players can match up with lebron.Lebron problem last year clearly was mental.2007 he was just too young and again some mental issues.We have never had anyone that can match up with lebron.Even artest looks small compared to lebron.Lebron was the blame for those finals thats just simple.

You could definitely argue that for the Dallas series.

First Finals I think he was Outgunned by a Better team and a Little bit of Awe of the Moment. Bowen was also still a Top 3 Wing Defender in the League at that point. Last season Lebron stopped Himself no Doubt. His lack of Effort in the 4th qtrs was the most alarming thing. He almost Checked out more than anything else.

Well, against Dallas I'm pretty sure people weren't praising Dallas for good defense on Lebron, they were critizing him for cracking under pressure, choking, being too passive which is pretty much Lebron stopping Lebron.....

It isn't a stretch by any means to say that this is the first Finals where there hasn't been a capable defender to throw at Lebron. You guys need to give more credit to Marion, he matched him physically and kept him out of it + Lebron's mentality = Finals disaster.

San antonio was one of the best defensive teams and they had bruce bowen cavs had simply no offensive players beside lebron.So we can let that one slide.

However last year marion was no match for lebron.Lebron was not playing like himself he was not attacking.Look at him now right now he is 4-26 on jumpshots in his last 3 games and he averages 30ppg on a very good efficieny.That just goes to show you nobody can stop him if he decides to bully his way to the rim.He is just too strong.He is probably the strongest player in these finals.Even though he was blocked 4 times,he still attacked relentlessly.Thunder has better rim protectors compared to dallas.

Sephalosha is 6"8 with Long arms and Quick Feet Durant has Length but Lebron seems to be able to go By him pretty easy Harden well the Jury remains out But Lebron should be to handle him. Knowbody in the Playoffs has been able to handle Lebron going against Melo, Granger and Pierce he has Handled all them fairly easily. MENTALLY Lebron is at a different place this year.
