Default If Lebron gets swept, will he still be up there in the rankings?

Say, for instance, Dirk didn't win MVP this year. He wouldn't be top 10 in many people's opinions because he lost in the Finals and wouldn't have an MVP. If Lebron gets swept, and since he doesn't have an MVP, will people start saying Wade>Lebron easily, and will Lebron not be thought of as "As good as Kobe" anymore? Anyone who goes far in the playoffs, then loses, is often decreased in terms of ratings.

Will Lebron still be up there in the rankings when he loses/gets swept because his path to the Finals wasn't exactly the hardest? Will his performance he forgotten because he failed? Or will The Lebron Hype live on.

Lebron's still in my top 5 overall, but in terms of who I want with the ball in their hands in the closing moments, Lebron isn't in my top 10...

He's not up there right now regardless.

Of course he will still be where he should. The Finals sweep shouldn't affect anything.

Was kidd still up there?

It's amazing that a 22yr old got a bunch of scrubs this far. Getting swept by one of the best teams of all time is not that big of a deal.

Ridiculous... I can't think of a single reason why Lebron isn't, at the very least, a top 5 player in the league... He's played pretty good basketball for the last few seasons and post seasons. Let's not judge him based on one series. People who tend to judge players based on one or two series tend to have a limited understanding of basketball I find... or more likely, they have an agenda.

It might in the future, but for right now, it probably stands for D. Wade.

I'm not hating, and I got love for a lot of players that aren't even on teams I root for. The truth is that Lebron James just isn't that good. He's just a really athletic NBA player that doesn't have the skill. He can only score in the paint.

The Cavaliers are never going to win with the team they have now. Lebron is no king.

I give him props for getting to the finals, but frankly the east is week. Players better than Lebron

1. Kobe
2. Tracy McGrady
3. Wade
4. Vince Carter
5. Dirk

Big men that are better than him include:

Kevin Garnett
Duncan


PG better than him:

Steve Nash
