A sweep is 4 games. Are you proving the NBA Finals were close by saying the Pistons lost to Cle but beat them the first two games of the ECF? A 4-0 series is not competitive.
What I am saying, is the first two games of the Eastern Conference Finals were competitive, even though the Cavs got swept in those games.

It was great to see Hughes do well though. If he can play like yesterday when Leborn comes back, it's going to be tough for the Cavs to lose. And, how sweet was Shannon's dunk?

LeBron needs to work on his FT% before he breaks any all time scoring records. 70% is very average, especially considering MJ and Kobe were/are around 83-84%.

2) Lol, 0% chance. Jason Kidd has a better chance.
Completely agree with this. He could pull of a season where he goes 12-10-13.

Hasn't he been better this season? Before he got hurt, I remember them saying that he was shooting above 80% in his last 45 attempts.

I checked ESPN. He's 70% for the year, 73% career. Not sure over the last 45 attempts.

Not talking about getting blown out by the knicks, or the intentional run in with the coach?And Kobe is about to be youngest to 20k, benefits of skipping college.

This guy is a ****ing beast. Am I the only one that realizes what I am seeing here? This guy is better than Jordan, yes you heard me correctly, better than Jordan. He is far and away the best player in the game right now...I don't see anyone as a close second. Is anyone watching some of the stuff this guy does?

im still not sold that many of these people that get these big online scores are winners when it comes to the live game, which, by the way, is real poker.

Off the Crack.If he was that good, he would have managed at least a single win in the finals, he didn't.

that's such a week argument Shaq in his prime got swept at least twice in the finalsi think shaq and kobe together only one one game against detroit that one yeardid you see that pathetic attempt anderson V made at that game winner in that one gamehe had without a doubt the worst 2-11 in the history of the nba finals - Jordans second best teammate in any of his championship years was leagues better than the cavs 2nd best playerif you switched lebron with tracey mcgrady and let him run he'd be averaging 35 and 10 easilythe guy is averaging 30 - 8- 8 with a sucky team and a coach who won't let him run the floor

two flaws...First of all, being swept means he's bad. Jordan got swept in 2 of his first 3 playoff series, both against boston. Being swept only means your team doesn't match up well at all against the other team, not that your best player is of inferior talent.second flaw. He got swept.. IN THE FINALS!?!?!?! I seriously think that was the worst team that has been in the NBA finals in my life time. The fact that they even made it to the finals is an absolute miracle. Jordan didn't win a playoff series till his 4th season, and didn't make it to the finals until his 7th. Lebron is way ahead of that curve I'm not prepared to say Lebron is better than Jordan.. for one thing they are very different players. But Lebron is a freak. End of story. We'll see if he shows the mental toughness, the commitment to getting better year after year after year that jordan had. But I don't know how anyone, after watching that miraculous detroit-cavs series, can doubt lebron at this point.

Lebrons on the ball defense and jumer prohibit him from being better than Jordan, yet.Or better than Kobe, yet.I will say that there has never been a player that took the ball to the rim with the power and grace of Lebron. NEVER. And its not even close. (That I've ever seen, obviously. Although its hard to imagine anyone else coming close.)

Allen Iverson took a worse 76ers team to the finals and single handedly beat a better Lakers team in LA than the Spurs team LeBron faced. Shaq wasn't being called the best player ever when he had just taken Orlando to the finals. He was clearly over matched by the experience of Hakeem.

When has Jordan EVER lost in the Finals? We're not talking playoff series, were talking Finals... If your good enough to get there, be good enough to not get owned in every single game before being called the best player in the league. If there was ever a sport where one player can singlehandedly turn the tide of a game it's basketball, especially sine LeBron has the ball in his hands every single play.
