Lebron James was able to help the Cavaliers tie a franchise win streak record of 13 straight beating the Sacramento Kings. James controlled the game with 32 points, 11 rebounds and 9 assists. Lebron is making the game look easy post exodus of Kyrie Irving and in spite of no Isaiah Thomas. King James seems to be the ageless wonder in his 15th year and still proving he is the best. Hence, everyone is salivating at watching Lebron deliver the same performance in the NBA Finals.
However, some have seen this movie before. Lebron James is delivering a performance we have seen time and time again. James is consistently great and improves yearly. Moreover, the King shows no signs of slowing down. LBJ is in the best shape of his life, The Cavs are on a 13-game win streak and Cavaliers have a deeper team.
If Lebron James Loses The NBA Finals Will He Have Any Room For Excuses or Reasons?
Despite the slow start James has bounced the Cavs right back to prominence. Cavaliers record of 18-7 serves as a testament to Lebron’s greatness. However, if Lebron loses another NBA Finals the excuses and reasons for his losses have to stop. James is 3-5 in the NBA Finals. The GOAT talk stopped after last years defeat as the excuse well began to dry up. Currently fans have “reasons” why Lebron lost the Finals and still is the GOAT.
Fans contend Kevin Love played poorly or the Cavs were too old. People state Kyrie Irving is unable to play when Lebron hit the bench. Now Kevin Love is playing great. Lebron will have Isaiah Thomas instead of Kyrie. Now Lebron will have a better bench. No more excuses or reasons if Lebron loses a 6th NBA Finals.
James is the first Mount Rushmore Caliber NBA player in NBA history where people simply will not honestly assess his finals losses as his fault. People refuse to believe Lebron is responsible for losing 5 times in the NBA Finals. That is delusional line of thinking but fans simply will not be realistic.
Lebron James is going into this year with so many things in his favor. The best team he has been on and the best he has ever played thus far people simply cannot let Lebron James continue to have a pass when he losses another finals. Those passes are unacceptable and unbecoming of someone considered the best in the NBA for 10 years. Fans disrespect the game crowning someone the GOAT who cant back it up when Larry O’Brien is on the line.
