Lebron James cements his legacy as one of the All-Time greats with Cavaliers title.


The debate is over. There isn’t any question anymore. Lebron James is one the greatest basketball players ever… period. For a player that already had 2 NBA Championships, James took a lot of criticism. He was 2-6 in NBA Finals. He wasn’t Michael Jordan. He wasn’t Magic, or Bird, or Kobe. He turned his back on Cleveland when he went to Miami.

Then the questions about Lebron all ended, or it should have unless you’re Skip Bayless who has an unhealthy anti-Lebron obsession.

Comparing Lebron to Jordan is unfair. Jordan has no peer in the modern era of basketball. Jordan’s will to win was unmatched, but James down 3 games to 1 to the best regular season team in history willed his team to victory. Yes Kyrie Irving played great. Kevin Love, Tristan Thompson, and J.R. Smith were integral contributors, but this was Lebron’s team.

He nearly averaged a triple-double in the series going for 29.7 points, 11.3 assists, and 8.9 assists, and brought a title to long suffering Cleveland fans. Their first title of any sort in 52 years.

That’s how you cement a legacy as one of the greatest players of all time.
