    I realize they opened with three tough teams but damn...the Lakers can shoot at all. This may be the first year LBJ misses the playoffs.

    They didn’t make it his rookie year, but did win 18 more games than the previous year. Would be weird not seeing him in the playoffs, heck, even not seeing him in the finals will be different.

    I think he should have at least one more. Of course I’m biased.

    They had crappy defense last year too. Problem is this year no offense to make up for it.

    My 86 yr old father proclaimed the Cavs as the worst team in the league right now.....he wonders how much “coaching” Ty Lue actually did over the last few years and said he thinks he is in over his head.
    I agree dad

    I think he should have at least one more. Of course I’m biased.
    I am only biased in that I enjoy watching great basketball players play. I enjoy watching Durant and Curry, watching Russell destroy everything in his path en route to triple doubles, and I also enjoy watching someone skilled in a specific element of their game play in that element...Dwight Howard in his hey-day on defense, for example.


    And While I truly love fast-break Warrior Durant's game...from a pure "who is more valuable to their team than any other player in the league", it mystifies me any time the name is anything other than James. Last years Rockets without either Paul or Harden are still a playoff team and quite possibly still a home court advantage. Last years Warriors team could lose any one, and possibly any two of the Durant/Curry/Thompson/Green set and be a home court team. Take Russell of the Thunder or Durant off the Cavs, they are not home court headed...they are not playoff headed...they are lottery bound with a lot of balls (under last years rules). They are the clear and obvious choices and even with Westbrook's statistical dominance...a lot of that came at the expense of his team members.

    James, he makes the correct basketball play, he elevates the play of his teammates and he is just really smurfing good at the game. I think the "at least one more" is underselling it. Year after year he provides more value to his team than anyone else. I personally believe part of the evidence is how far he takes teams that don't belong going that far. Who else is doing that?

    Some people would argue the Thunder did not get far enough with the level of talent they had even after the Roberson injury. Paul George, Steven Adams, the ghost of Carmelo Anthony and you scrape into the playoffs? Give James that crew and they are home court advantage and giving the Warriors fits. I just believe voter fatigue has stolen MVP trophies from James and, back in the day, Jordan through the years.

    Not that I am crying for them. As I alluded above to Frank, the L*kers could go 0-82 for the next ten years and my hope for the 11th year would be it would start another decade of winlessness. But to deny the greatness of James is to not understand the game of basketball. He has long been the most dominant force in the league.
