LeBron James has three championships and he has earned those trophies by beating some really stacked teams from a talent perspective. In 2012, the Miami Heat were not favored to beat the Oklahoma City Thunder but they prevailed. Even with Miami’s Big Three, Thunder still had the better team and were on a tear in the playoffs. King James made Durant and Harden shrink on the perimeter, garnering his first Finals MVP.
In 2013 LeBron and company were back again against just the greatest trio in NBA history. The San Antonio Spurs were a dynasty and had beat James once before in 2007 and he got his revenge in a surprising way. He helped bring the Heat back in Game Six, most forget that James hit a big three on the possession right before Ray Allen hit his historic one. He ended that series with a dominant Game 7 win and put a hole in the hearts of Spur fans around the world.
1) 73-Win Team:
The Warriors are technically the greatest regular season team in history--if you go by the record alone. And even they fell to King James and Company. This time James is the only current Hall of Famer on the Cleveland Cavs and it showed. He brought his team back from a 3-1 deficit by leading the series (on both teams) in points, rebounds, assists, and steals. An absolutely astounding feat that displayed his all-around game.
Bottomline, give credit where credit is due. No one gives Bill Russell or Wilt Chamberlain a hard time for playing in a era with limited big-men. No one blinked an eye when Magic Johnson or Larry Bird were each other's only competition in the league. Let athletes dominate their eras without scrutinizing them for things they can’t control--like rule changes and conference competition.
