    People need to understand, this is LeBron's 17th year. He is still one of the 2 best players in the world. And he is still pretty explosive - he's not as athletic as he was 10 years ago but he can still FLY.. We’ll never see someone this great, this late into their career, ever again.

    Tracy McGrady in his 10th year was playing for the Knicks and could barely jump. Shaq in his 17th year averaged 12/6 playing for the Cavs. The great Tim Duncan averaged 13/9 in his 17th year and was just a role player for his team.

    Appreciate greatness. You'll never see another player like LeBron. He is EASILY the second greatest player of all time.
    Lebron is insane. What he does on the court is really amazing. There's a lot of noise around him (some of it he generates), but just watch what he does on the court. Incredible.

    A guy leading his team to 10 Finals in the modern era is absolutely unparalleled. Closest guys are Kobe and Magic who weren't the best players on their teams for some of their Finals runs. Only 2 guys in NBA history have been to more Finals than Lebron, Bill Russell and Sam Jones played on those dominant Celtics that faced a handful of teams in a CFL-sized league.

    I'm a pretty big MJ fan but not enough is made of the difference between leading teams to the Finals 10 times vs 6. That's a huge gap between the two. Other huge gap is just Lebron's shelf life as a dominant player. I really think MJ was wired in such a way that he couldn't sustain his own peak intensity. He burned himself out after each 3-peat. He needed breaks. Lebron's stretch of Finals runs here is insane, and nobody has ever done it under these circumstances. Nobody.

    Jimmy, not-a-superstar Butler, hid the crown last night.
    Jimmy is probably the scariest non-superstar player to play against. He has the mentality of Jordan, just not the skills.

    Of course we witnessed it last year. I was never afraid of Simmons or Embiid, it was Jimmy that scared me.

    Everything riding on who's healthy first - Bam or AD? Because Bam's still not having much impact, he's off. With both guys injured, it's a toss up. If one of them gets back on track and the other doesn't, it's over.

    Wow.

    Once AD was hobbled, that was another Lebron + scraps Finals game. Markieff Morris (!) throwing the ball away. Ice cold playoff shooter Danny Green clanking a wide open look (created by Lebron). I mean he's on the floor with an actual lottery team, drags 'em right to the brink but it's not enough.
