Lebron Leads The Cavs To Another Eastern Conference Finals

Published

on

The Toronto Raptors spent most of the season as the number 1 team in the East Conference. Their dreams of making it to Eastern Conference finals were ended again at hands of Lebron James. The Raptors were swept in the series against the Cavs after a game 4 blow out 128-93.

James has now made it to 10 conference finals in 12 years. Lebron gave all of the credit to his teammates for the win.

“As everyone was burying my teammates alive throughout that first-round series, I was just telling them, ‘Listen, we can’t win without each and every one doing their job and being as great as they can be,'” James said. “I continue to preach that. It’s impossible for me to lose confidence in our ballclub, no matter what the stakes are or what we’re down.”

As for the Raptors, the writing is on the wall that team will have to reset their roster.

“You’re looking at probably one of the guys that’s going to go down as one of the greatest ever, and it’s a matchup nightmare for anybody,” Raptors coach Dwane Casey said. “We’ve seen it with Michael [Jordan], we’ve seen it with Kobe [Bryant], we’ve seen it with a lot of great players … for whatever reason, we got the unlucky draw every year, going against him.”

Jalen Rose Walks Off Set Over Jordan Vs Lebron

Published

on

The debate over Jordan versus Lebron will be one talked about forever. No matter where you go. For some, there is no debate, Jordan all day. For others, Lebron hands down.

Jay Williams joined Get Up! to make the point that in 1 on 1, he would give Lebron the advantage.

“You cannot tell me in a one-on-one game that LeBron James wouldn’t dominate Mike. In a one-on-one game, LeBron James, 6-9, 260 pounds — if the game was to seven, I think LeBron would win 7-3. You can talk about his mentality, but we’re not talking about five-on-five basketball, J-Rose. We’re not talking about the passive LeBron, making the right play … LeBron James is 6-9, 260, he moves like a guard! He moves like a guard. He defends like a guard.”

Jalen responded with the classic Jordan comeback.

“Michael Jordan was all-defensive first team nine times. LeBron James was five times. Michael Jordan led the league in scoring ten times. Ten! LeBron James led the league in scoring once. I’m talking about a guy whose been the best offensive player AND the best defensive player.”

James also tied Allen Iverson with the most 40 points games during the playoffs. Both players had 6 games in the playoffs with over 40 points.

“To know where I come from, small city 35 miles south of here, and to hear I’m in the same category or talked about and jumping these greats in the playoffs, it’s pretty cool,” James said. “You hear the scoring, the field goals made, and for a kid that really doesn’t care much about scoring.”

The Cavs will face Boston again on Wednesday night for Game 5.
