    You take the top 50 players in the nba in the 90s vs the top 50 players of today and rotate them off rankings per game, the 90s might not lose a game :dead:

    This was not what I was expecting. Maybe the stupidest way ever to compare them. Lebron played 2-3 of the most statistically dominant teams ever in the finals. Jordan's toughest opponents were in the ECF.

    I think they put Kawhi because he was Finals MVP that year. Jimmy might’ve had a better statistical series, but they still lost.

    4 of the five for Bron played with another player listed...in multiple Finals. Each of the five for MJ were solo. Which is really the story of this discussion despite the fact that people don't want to talk about. MJ was never overmatched in a Finals. Talent outside of the top guy, and more importantly, production was always either close or advantage MJ. He showed that he was not beyond being overmatched against the C's and Pistons. Every Finals Bron lost his supporting players were outplayed by the supporting players on the other squad with the exception of 2011, which he still has to atone for. He's got Finals where he outscored his man by 10 and 20 pts and the dude won Finals MVP because the rest of their squad so thoroughly outplayed the rest of Bron's. MJ still the GOAT, no need to get insecure...yet. Bron still at this level at the end of next year then feel free.

    100% with you on everything here except which one is the GOAT, but respectfully I know where we both stand on that point and it's all good!

    Everything else you spoke on is 100...

    LeBron's legacy is going to be felt for a long, long time; not unlike Mike, 20 years after his retirement LeBron is still gonna command NBA headlines. Amongst many, many other things, part of LeBron's legacy is he's the only guy in league history that guys created a super team with the primary objective of keeping him from winning all the championships, and guys in that squad during that run are on record as saying this. Its easy for folk to shyt on Bron in real time, but we're really in a period where the last time a healthy LeBron James wasn't one of the last two men (teams) standing, was 2010. 11 frigging years ago, in all likelihood would take some unforeseen calamity for his team to not be one of the last two again this year...

    A few guys have had All-Time streaks of dominance, but this one is uniquely and individually Bron's own. This is an individual streak of dominance that hasn't been seen before and its hard to imagine another individual running off a decade of Finals runs consecutively again...
