Default Where would LeBron rank if he lost in the ECF in 07,11,14,15,17,18?

He would be 3/3 in the Finals with 3 FMVPs and 4 MVPs


Where would he rank?

Basketball GOAT but nothing more. Not the savior of humanity. Not the steersman of our destiny.

Getting swept in the 1st round and finishing 12-16th place is much better than losing in the Finals and finishing 2nd



2nd place is the first loser - Michael Scott

Losing in the Finals more than once is awful, that is why CP3 will end up better than 0/2 Stockton. Both ringless but at least CP3 aint a loser.

I don't think he would be ranked as high as he is now. (Especially with how weak the East is). That's just way too much losing for an all time great at a big stage, but not the highest.

In a sense it's worse than losing in the first round as an 8th seeded level team, because that team would not be good enough. But to have a team that's good enough to always make it to the ECF over and over, and lose so many times. Not a good look if Lebron could not consistently pull them over, especially in the much weaker East.

But of course that has not been the case.

When the dust settles, still outside Top 5.

Maybe Top 10

Considering he lost with HCA 3x years in a row and won 2 bronze medals not very high.

Duncan lost with HCA 7x and was supposed to be the best player on that '04 bronze team

3/3 with one ring because of Adam Silver and one because of Ray Allen.

1/3 with 2*



Top 100 all time because of STATTTS

Had he stayed in Cleveland you'd be bitching about how he refuses to come to the West and hides in the weak East. Stop moving goalposts.
