Getting Swept by the Warriors Will Have No Impact on LeBron's Legacy

Getting Swept by the Warriors Will Have No Impact on LeBron's Legacy

LeBron and the Cavs are probably going to get swept tonight. Maybe they put up a fight for a half, or even into the 3rd quarter. But Vegas made the Warriors 6-point favorites for Game 4 tonight, and lets be honest with ourselves " LeBron has run out of gas in the 4th quarter of all three Finals games, so why should anyone believe he can magically summon the energy to pull the upset on just one night off?

But the sweep will have no impact on LeBrons legacy. None. Its pretty simple:

Hes facing the greatest team in NBA history. Theyve steamrolled the NBA all season, and are on the cusp of being the first NBA team to go 16-0 in the playoffs.

Jordan never lost five times in the Finals. Yeah, well Jordan never got to the Finals seven years in a row. Jordan was never swept in the Finals! Jordan lost in the first round three times, and was swept twice. LeBrons never lost in the 1st round. We can play this game all day.

LeBrons been the favorite in the finals just three times: Against Dallas (loss), against Oklahoma City (win) and against San Antonio in 2013 (win). Hes been an underdog five times.

Ive been consistent on this: LeBrons overall resume trumps Jordans. But Jordan 6-0 in the Finals gives MJ a slight edge in the hypothetical Whos Better? question. I could go long on how the five teams Jordan whipped in the Finals were unimpressive, and even those 1991 Lakers lost Byron Scott and James Worthy to injury in the deciding game five. The current NBA, with Super Teams, is vastly superior to 90s ball, regardless of what Charles Barkley says. We can do this dance all night: LeBrons had weaker supporting casts. Fact.
