LeBron appreciation post.
FIFTH Eastern Conference Title in 5 years. For half a decade, LeBron plays until the very end of the season. That’s bonkers!
You have to go back to the 60′s Celtics to find a player who made 5 Finals in a row, and this was not a fluky case of a role player switching to the right teams. No, this dude was the leader of all five of those teams. Even Magic’s Lakers and Bird’s Celtics never reached the Finals 5 times in a row in the 80′s.
You could bring up the sorry state of the Eastern Conference for almost 20 years now, and that would be a valid argument, but at some point you just gotta respect greatness while it’s happening right in front of our eyes.
