The Finals?

Jason Kidd
Tyson Chandler
and Jason Terry

Hell, even JJ Barrea.

Are you serious? People say MJ's '96 Finals was atrocious (and it was for his standards)

Dirk put up 26 ppg, comparable to MJ on 41% FG percentage. Not with all time elite, DPOY caliber guy defending him, ala Gary Payton. Instead?

Udonis Haslem recently back from injury in the 2011 playoffs, like 4 inches shorter had him on lock at times.

Game 7 he was carried by Jason Terry schooling LeBron until Dirk finally had his jumper kick in.

Dirk's Finals in 2011 is ridiculously overrated.

LeBron James's 2007 PS.

Overall, it wasn't that special outside of that 4th quarter takeover in Game 5, despite what his overall numbers might suggest. Also, I've never gotten the pass he gets for his bad finals in 2007, when he gets praise for leading the Cavs to the Finals in the first place.

IMO, can't have it both ways. You have to accept both.

2011 Dirk. It was a pretty average performance and what makes it extremely overrated is that it gets compared to Wade's. Wade was by far the best player in that series and it wasn't even close.

Lebron's 2007 PS run was also pretty overrated. I don't really recall him having any dominant performances other than that game 5 against the Pistons. Not to mention his terrible finals.

Kobe's 2006 RS is also extremely overrated. There were several players that year scoring far more than their career averages. But then again, Kobe's whole career has been overrated.

All in all, none of them were really spectacular.

All 3 very over-rated.

I'd say Dirk's finals is actually the most over-rated because he was pretty average. Had the flu one game in which he didn't do much until the end...and had the horrific shooting first half in game 6. Dirk did make some big plays late in those games which salvaged the series, but it wasn't the dominant performance people claim it was. Really I think people mean to say Dirk in the playoffs in 11...not the Finals.

Probably then Kobe's 06 season. Lebron statistically was actually better in the regular season and playoffs. Combine that Kobe's inability to dominate the Suns, a blown 3-1 series lead, and a quit in game 7.

Lebron's performance against the Pistons was pretty crazy, but outside that you'd expect better in the finals from an all time great player...even one just in his 4th year with the kind of experience he had.

Dirk's Finals are only overrated if you ignore all context and only look at boxscore stats. IF you actually watch the series, you will better understand. Dirk's finger injury in game 1 which did affect his shooting over the rest of the series, plus he had the flu in one game as well. Even with the injury to himself, his 4th best player being injured(Butler), his backup center got injured in game 4 or 5, and his "HOF GOAT" starting PG got benched for a midget Puerto Rican, he still absolutely dominated Wade and Lebron in the minutes that mattered most.

Lebron wasn't even the best player on the 07 Cavs, yet people act like he helped them. He was a liability all year. 07 Lebron's PS is the most overrated and meaningless playoffs by a player ever.

Individually, Lebron's overall 2007 season was a disappoint for me. Even though they made the finals. He wasn't as consistently good as he was in 2006 IMO.
