Would be impressive if he played in the West.

In his first 11 pro-seasons, Duncan didn't lose a 1st round series and also 4 for 4 in the NBA Finals.

I guess we didn't see a situation like LeBron's before and OP started this thread?

Difference here is that Ducan has always been in a strong team while Lebron has been in a team full of shite.

His age doesn't matter, he's 10x year vet in the league.

He'd led 2 teams to the Finals (2007 Cavs, 2012 Heat)

He co-led the 2011 Miami Heat

Nice that you think that. But nobody really gets "co led" credit off the top of my head. It always ends up being one guy. Lebron is it. he didnt do shit when they got there. But it was his team and will be remembered as such.

And how its laughable to play bad teams in the first round is beyond me. Everyone does know that you get to play bad teams by having a great record right? What....its more impressive to lose more to play a higher seed in the first round?


Great players tend to play poor teams in the first round because great players win enough games to not face high seeds early.

The people hating on Lebron do a lot to show how great he is. I mean...this guy is 27 and is already being compared to Wilt Chamberlain as a negative. When your haters are laughing because you "only" appear to be headed to a Wilt chamberlain like career it says a lot. And none of it bad.

Put LeBron to the Spurs roster in 2001-04, and think about what you wrote.

LeBron has never won a chip without Wade..

Wade had already won a chip without LeBron..

Therefore LeBron rode Wade for half chip..

I wasn't aware Lebron played 1 on 12 for all of his first round playoffs.


Maybe Lebrons teams have never lost in the first round?

Will people finally stop acting like those Cavs teams were under dogs? When the truth is that they were the overwhelming favorites 2 years in a row.

Looool like that's something to proud of when facing those shitty teams
That's what happens when you are normally leading your team to a good record. James could lead any team to 50+ wins and a top-4 seed. That's a major positive, whether you realize it or not.
