Cavs beat the Warriors in one of the greatest finals games ever. A legendary Kyrie 3 ball and Lebron block sealed the deal. Hell of a game.

Time to move on.

Thunder winning it all in 2017.

Lebron gonna be better. Jordans problem was he quit playing too young. He first retired when he was younger than Lebron is now. He was basically out two season b/c he only played 17 games in the 94-95 season. Had 3 more seasons after that, and not even gonna count the wizards part of his career. He really only had 11 good years. Lebron is going to pass him on the scoring list within 3 years....he's 5.5k behind now.

Also, had the Warriors won the title this wouldn't even be a discussion. He had arguably the greatest Finals performance, doesn't make him the best player ever.

So 6 of 11 Jordan seasons he was the champ. Sounds impressive.

55% of his career, he was a champion.

Lebron is now 3-4 in the Finals.

That last sentence hit the nail on the head. And it was really the last 3 games of the Finals (all elimination games).

If Draymond wasn't a nard attacker, GSW might have finished it in 5.

Lebron never been swept out of the first round....twice
Both times they were the 8 seed and one of which the team was 22 games below .500. Probably shouldn't have even been in the playoffs. With that said Jordan made the playoffs every single season he played with the Bulls, Lebron didn't get there until year 3.

Jordan also averaged 44 and 36ppg in those sweeps, I'm guessing he didn't have much help.
