What other player in the modern NBA era has achieved this?

No other player could ever carry a team like LeMoses does every year.

INB4 LeEast. Every year he has been through some tough match ups and hard fought battles (Indiana, Chicago, Boston etc).

Your thoughts.

and in these 5 years he's beat a total of 4 teams with 50+ wins on his way there. For some reference Kobe went through 8 50+ win teams in the West from 2008-2010

maybe not that low but he would have some competition for sure

and the outcome of repeated brutal battles in each round would be interesting to say the least `

Dude can ball no doubt. Gotta keep in mind his teams though. The Heat and now the Cavs are good af as a TEAM.

I think carrying that Cavs team in 2010 is more impressive than any other feat personally.

2013

Spurs playoff run - sweep, 6 games, sweep

Heat playoff run - sweep, 5 games, 7 games


that feel when the spurs had a week off before the finals and only needed 14 games to win their conference and still got beat by lebron needing 16 games to win and coming off an exhausting 7 game series.



but but but, the west destroys themselves en route to the finals and lebron has a cakewalk and the west is so exhausted by the finals that Lebron beats them.

ATL, Bulls, Wizards, etc.. would all be first round exits in the West.

Lebron absolutely dominates the Leastern Conference though, I'll give him that but honestly it's not all that impressive considering his Finals winning %. It just shows the discrepancy between the two conferences.

I apologize Bulls fans, but they're the only ones. No other teams in the East got a fanbase other than the Bulls. Maybe only the Celtics when they're actually good.

what about the seasons like 2012

it took Lebron 18 games (5 games, 6 games, 7 games) to make the finals.
OKC made it in 15 games (sweep, 5 games, 6 games).
yet Lebron bitchslapped the 3 HOF locks on that team in 5 games.



what about 2013

it took Lebron 16 games (sweep, 5 games, 7 games) to make the finals.
the Spurs made it in 14 games (sweep, 6 games, sweep).
yet Lebron still beat the 4 HOFers on that team.


oh look. Lebron had to battle harder and longer to make the finals than his western opponents when he won his rings. oh look. Lebron came into the finals off a 7 game series BOTH times he won rings.


much rest. such vacation.







another...



It's hilarious to watch you peasants still bicker when you've already been ethered into a cloud of forgotten memories.

It doesn't matter what the record is of pre-finals opponent.

If the east opponents were that inferior, why did Lebron have to go to war to get out the east? Why did it take 7 games to win the east both times he won rings?

Why did "superior" west teams beat "superior" west teams in less games than Lebron needed to beat "inferior" eastern teams... And then LOSE TO LEBRON?

you phaggots are done. Get these bodybags outta here. Dirt on your coffins. RIP in peace.



strong irrelevant meltdown

bruh it's simple

lebron is the one who went through wars to get to the finals both times he won his rings.

fkn lol.. the spurs literally swept the CONFERENCE FINALS. such ADVERSITY. such WARFARE to win their conference.



you phaggots are done. RIP in peace.

Being in the Leastern Conference will actually hurt Lebron's legacy in the long run.

He will forever be known as that star who constantly dominates the Leastern Conference only to get his chit pushed in, in the Finals.

And in response to Daewoo, it's actually embarassing that he needs that many games to beat teams with less than 50 wins, etc...

You're really going to tell me that Pacers, Bulls, Isiah Thomas led Celtics, etc... are better teams than Clippers, Spurs, OKC, GSW, etc..?

****n LOL are you just dumb or delusional? We're talking about the competition. How good teams are compared to one another. You're really going to sit there and tell me the path to the Finals is actually HARDER in the East? Come on Daewoo I expect you to be smarter than that. Spurs dominated teams in the West because they were on another level. Lebron and the Heat was probably their EASIEST test last year in the post season.

So by that logic, Heat most likely wouldn't even make it out of the first round in the West because they were BY FAR the easiest matchup for the Spurs in the post-season.

Its just as tough in the East if not tougher.

Vs Boston - some guy got his Shoulder pulled out and some other guy got his skull cracked while also busting up his knee at the same time.

Vs Bulls - Everyone knows how exhausting that series was for everyone. You can see it in the body language. The amount of energy exterted damn near got someone killed. Easily the most physically demanding series in the playoffs

Meanwhile in the West you have a guy like James Harden crying because someone scratched his forearm, You got flopping phaggots in cp3 and Blake, and forget about the Warriors/grizz series. That is the softest series in the entire playoffs.

That may be true but he was 5/9 in the NBA Finals. He won in the Finals more than 50% of the time against an all-time great team.

um

2012:

it took Lebron 18 games (5 games, 6 games, 7 games) to make the finals.
OKC made it in 15 games (sweep, 5 games, 6 games).

Logic says that because OKC made it through "tougher" competition and "better" teams in less games, that they should've rekt the Heat.. especially considering that they had home court advantage. And yet Lebron who had to go to war to even make the finals beat the chit out of OKC.


2013:

it took Lebron 16 games (sweep, 5 games, 7 games) to make the finals.
the Spurs made it in 14 games (sweep, 6 games, sweep).

Logic says that because the Spurs made it through "tougher" competition and beat "better" teams in less games (AND SWEPT THEIR CONF. FINALS), they should've rekt the Heat even without having home court advantage. When you are good enough to sweep your conference finals and your conference is supposedly THAT superior to the leastern conference, you should easily handle an Eastern team that needed to go to war just to get out of that chithole conference. especially when you have a week off prior to the finals to rest your seasoned warriors.

And yet Lebron won again.







Logic and facts do not support your theory. You are wrong. The eastern playoffs were more difficult than the western playoffs the 2 seasons that Lebron won rings.

"western teams kill each other in the playoffs and lebron cakewalks and beats the west because they are tired" = DEAD FOREVER. RIP in peaces. dirt on the coffin. no one at the funeral bc embarassment.

The dude has 0.75 rings and im being generous.
Cant win without teaming up with superstars in their prime like Wade/Bosh/Ray allen/Rashard LEwis/Birdman/Mike Miller.

Perennial loser, might as well call him LeCHOKE. Get back to me when he can beat ACTUAL teams unlike the ones hosted in the LEASTERN conference

This post doesn't even warrant a response.

Celtics!? Are you really bringing up an Isiah Thomas led Celtics into this discussion? The team who doesn't even have a .500% record who MADE the postseason in the East?

I don't even know why I bother trying.

What Chauncey Billups did was way more impressive. He didn't have the help of other stars like Bosh, Wade, Kyrie, etc..
