A Force To Be Reckoned With

As of Thursday night, LeBron James only furthermore set his mark in NBA history.

For five years straight, LeBron has lead his team to the Eastern Conference Championship Series, a trend that has become such a norm. Many of us have forgotten what it’s like to have a team who doesn’t have Lebron on it competing for the title.

Dating back to 2011 in his first season with Miami, not only has LeBron advanced to the Conference Championship, but he’s also made it to the NBA Finals each time; two of which he won back to back.

After sweeping the Boston Celtics and finishing a physical 6-game series with the Bulls, he’s averaging over 26 ppg and 8 apg, both which lead his team. 

The only thing standing in his way now from his fifth straight finals appearance is either the Wizards or the Hawks. Both who most would say it’s safe to assume they couldn’t beat Lebron’s Cavs.

A common theme seems to follow LeBron wherever he goes. And it’s the one that gets LeBron referred to as “making the Conference Championship” more than “‘ team name here’ making it the Conference Championship”.

Whenever he goes, whether it’s the beaches of Miami or the snow banks of Cleveland, LeBron is the dominate force in the game today. Taking a team that went from first in the draft all the way to the doorstep of the finals is not a very big club. In fact the last person to lead his team in such fashion was Hall Of Fame center David Robinson and his Spurs the year they drafted Tim Duncan.

The overall point gathered from these playoffs is only emphasizing LeBron’s legacy as one of the greatest to ever play. And the fact we can recognize it as it’s happening is truly something to enjoy.
