My question is why wasn't he this great last year on the lakers??? Smh! What changed? O! Thats write he went and built another super team. There is a difference between making a team great or building a great team to enter the season.

Really, thats upsetting? Not the fact that the Bucks, another small-market team, might not get a better chance to win a title because the league has a blow up a Lebron team to win? That's not upsetting?

If Lebron had Michael's squads, and Michael, Lebron's, who'd have more championships? The G.O.A.T. Lebron James, hands down.

Is it me or is everything sports becoming very emotionally driven here 🧐🤔 Technically, no team can call this season a success. It was cut short for everyone. The Lakers are 1st in the West. Compared to the majority of the 2010s, this season was definitely a success. Especially considering LeBron’s 1st year as a Laker was awful for many reasons. Then the next season, they’re on top of the conference. A conference many said would be difficult for LeBron to handle like he did the East. Nobody can win the chip unless there’s a playoffs...simple

What a stupid topic and argument. You are saying LeBron failed because he couldn't bring a championship to LA this year???? That's the same thing for every NBA team right now ....duh. It's not like his team lost the championship....there's NO CHAMPIONSHIP TO BE PLAYED!!!!

Lebron is always making excuses to not win the title. He got the team he wanted but now he uses COVID as an excuse. MJ played the finals with Corona virus.

So Lebron is a goat who cant win in a no D era, doesnt drive in clutch time because afraid to take free throws and still gets injured and load manage in a no contact NBA.

Idk if the NBA did continue this season and change the playoff format like the NCAA tournament, it will be interesting being that players will be rusty and probably not be in playoff game shape.

I don't know why people think Bron potentially winning a ring would put him ahead of MJ. It doesn't make sense. You can't erase 6 Finals losses no matter how bad the media wants to. And Steven A. looks so depressed as though Bron is the only player in the league. LeMedia at it's best.

Best part about the occurrences of the past few months is the fact that LeBron can't take advantage of it. He had opportunities in his last 17 seasons to win titles. He's had enough chances.

How is it a success? First seed in the west, 2nd best record in the what? Giannis had a better year if that’s the criteria for being a successful season, and I hear no one talking about the Bucks. News flash ESPN, Lebron isn’t the nba, try being professionals and pretend that u care about sports, not just a few select names u can beat to death.

I don't feel bad for Lebron. Not at all. Because his season started in China where he could not say ONE small passive aggressive thing for the people of Hong Kong but he could defend the rights of the Communist Government and his bag. His seasoned ended in China and the last time I checked. It is affecting his bag.... and his love the game of basketball. So ughh. Enjoy the off season Lebron and the rest of the NBA. I was in support of the people of Hong Kong, Before, During, and After Corona. Your welcome.

The winners of this season: The Clippers, who got to use this season to heal their two star and gain chemistry The Warriors, who were tanking this season anyway, for a full reload next season. The Miami Heat, who have proven to be on the cusp of greatness, and maybe one free agent away from a title And the Mavs/Celtics, who also get to reset their chemistry, and proved they may be one player away

It is better for LeBron this way ,because he would have been annihilated, humiliated and dominated in the playoffs by Kawhi and the Clippers.

im not sad....he's caught so many breaks in his career. 1. Caught a young Thunder team and ref assistance. 2. Ray Allen....don't even need to speak on that. self explanatory. 3. Kyrie Irving...hit the biggest shot Lebron couldn't and crying to media to influence the finals. 4. Played with a bevy of HOF'ers, all-stars, and serviceable role players.
