There is no way anyone on this planet can stop LeBron one on one. If you were on
the playground, you would triple team him and still have trouble. The nature of
the rules of the NBA for defense mandates that you play one on one. Only a zone
would slow him down. Under the current rules, it is impossible.
OKC would have won the Eastern conference this year and they couldn’t get
out of the first round of the playoffs in the Western Conference.
Labron only won last night because Boston was, to quote Bill Walton, horrible.
Sheesh...what an outcome!
It took me fifteen years but I am finally convinced that LeBron James is the
greatest basketball player of all time. To get that Cleveland team to the NBA
Finals is amazing.
It's puzzling -- and wrong -- that Brad Stevens did not get a single vote
for Coach of the Year. To take a team without Kyrie Irving and Gordon Hayward
and get to within nine points of the championship round is amazing, doing it
with so many young players. I think that last summer Hayward (from
HIS perspective) could not have made a wrong decision. Had he stayed with the
Jazz, he would have helped make them a title contender within 2-3 years.
Choosing Boston puts him in the same position. What I DO wonder is whether his
starting position at small forward is not now threatened. Jason Tatum played so
well -- especially in the playoffs under pressure -- that I would make him a
starter over Hayward.
Most everyone says James Harden will be the 2018 mvp. I am a Houston Rockets
fan and hope they can win the championship, but how can anyone say that anyone
other than Labron James is the mvp? He is a one-man team and has been for a
decade. And he is a mvp of the court as well.
