I doubt James can win the Finals alone, but I won’t be shocked if he takes the team there again this year.

        • I’d never count James out. He’s special, but Jordan was a cut above IMO. A lot of LeBron-ites insist that Michael’s Bulls teams were much better than those in Cleveland, but so too were Michael’s competition. The Celtics, Pistons, Knicks, and Lakers of that era were unbelievable – just to name a few.
