Until 2014, LeBron James was widely regarded as the NBA’s best-overall player. Since then, Steph Curry eclipsed this title from him, with his Warriors joining the Spurs and the Mavericks as teams who defeated James in the NBA Finals. Tonight, their rematch began.
With the focus on Steph Curry, LeBron has silently made NBA history over the past decade. The first non-Celtic to make six straight Finals appearances, LeBron took two different franchises, in consecutive years, to the big stage. Overall, he’s been to seven Finals in nine years.
LeBron James has carved out a legacy that is all his own, but the Cleveland Cavaliers’ all-time franchise leader couldn’t get it done in Game 1 versus the Golden State Warriors, despite bad games from Steph Curry and Klay Thompson. He addressed this during the postgame interview. Trust that Tyronn Lue has them going over tape, right now.
