Default Since the 80ís West was worse than the current East...

Why wasnít Magic good enough to make 7 straight Finals?



Especially with all the HOFs he had around him.

So Magic was good enough to win more titles than LeBron BUT not good enough to...have as many finals trips?

Seems legit.

Probably because his defense and scoring were only average.

Right...

But playing in a historically weak conference with a stacked team and the highest payroll...doesn't land you 7 consecutive finals appearances.

LeBron fans are always good for a laugh

LeBron had to go against a 4 all-star super team to make the Finals in 2015

i'm pretty this is all true for Showtime too even if OP is being a dumbass .

To answer OP's questions seriously, they had a fluke loss in 81 because it was 3 game series and dealt with a legitimate all time great in 86 in Hakeem who's far better than any star Lebron has had to deal with. If we're going bring up how it's stupid to count finals losses as worse than earlier losses(which it is) and the only thing that matters is rings, then we should also acknowledge making the Finals is not that much bigger of a deal than making say the conference finals in a lot of cases. Magic would've made 10 straight Finals if it wasnt for that. The last few years of Magic's career (88,90-91), the West was pretty great and better imo than the few good East years during Bron's career.

he didn't get 7 straight, but he still went to the finals 9 times.

less than 1% of all nba players ever get to do that.
