The narrative of LeBron took a team of nobodies to the Finals in Cle we hear a lot.

It certainly has no Hall of Fame talent besides LeBron, but some notable players in Big Z and varejoa, who created a formidable frontline, and some shooters who spaced the fllor well for LeBron to attack and dish. It catered to his stats for sure

These Finals runs by Iverson and Kidd are dismissed as if they didn't count for anything.

 

Yet if those two would have made a move similar to the Heat in their absolute primes, Kidd joiniungThe Spurs or Iverson going to the Kings or something like that...it would have been seen as UNFAIR.I don't know why I went ion this long rant but I don't want to hear about getting to the Finals in the East.

 

 

Dwight 's head blew up from that and that's why he didn't stay. 1st round exits in the west for him 2 years running. And not to the eventually WCC this season

LeBron's claim to fame in 2007 was beating what was left of the Detroit Pistons with Ben Wallace no longer there and being replaced by Chris Webber and eventually his miraculous game 5.   


Aside from that he went through the Vince Carter, Jason Kidd and Jason Collins lead New Jersey Nets and the Wizards without Arenas prior to that. 

Pretty much he was good enough to get through the relatively weak east and what was left of their once champion but not good enough to beat the best of the West in San Antonio.  But it was his comeback in game 5 against the Pistons that people remember.   After that year the East got good.. real good.  The Big 3 Celtics came along with the Orlando Magic's emergence.   

This is why Cleveland Lost to the Celtics the next year, and Orlando the year after that, and then the Celtics again the year after that before LeBron said screw it I'm going to Miami.   That said that Cavs team asked LeBron to pretty much do everything.  The right kind of players to fit around a player like him but no second star for him to win it with.  Similar to what the Bulls had before they drafted Scottie.  But LeBron didn't want to wait for Scottie. So he went to Miami and became Scottie till he had to become the leader of the team in order for them to win a championship which he did do in the 2nd year and deserves credit for.

LeBron should get his own sub forum around here.
