    Will a win cement his place in the GOAT discussion?

    Will a loss move him out of the top 10 discussion as he would be 3-7 in the finals and losing to a much younger and inexperienced squad (Celtics or Heat)?

    How will the 2020 finals impact Lebron's place among the greats.

    No, a loss will not move him out of top 10 discussion.

    IMO he's cemented number 2 unless something crazy happens and he wins out championships until retirement (2-3 more years?)

    Must be nice for LeBron NOT to deal with the Golden State Warriors, this year.

    did you notice the difference between LBJ and JH??
    I have to say it, and you have to give huge credit to LBJ for his:

    KILLER INSTINCT!!! and DEDICATION!!!

    When we need JH in clutch time or big game, he rarely showed up. This is the different that puts you in the NBA finals.

    a win moves him closer to jordan but doesn't catch him.

    he basically can't move below #2 no matter what he does for the rest of his career. he's too far ahead of everybody else.

    a loss i think forever prevents him from catching/passing jordan. jordan wouldn't lose with a team this good with AD on it. the lakers will have the two best players in the series, no matter who they face.

    Riiiight. A certain 7'0'' 2nd place DPoY dude with a brow has nothing to do with it. Never mind the fact that the Lakers' role players hit timely 3s. Meanwhile, our role players get caught cheating on their wives.

    Harden played with Dwight for many years who has won the DPOY many times. Had great role players around him too like Ryan Anderson, Beverley, Trevor Ariza, Eric Gordon, etc. Enough with the excuses. Harden is a 2nd class star in this league.

    Beverley is not that good...he’s not even really starting caliber, and he’s always injured

    Did u forget that we were starting the corpse of Jason Terry in the 2015 playoffs because Bev was hurt as usual?

    Trevor Ariza is ok...he also went 0-12 in game 7 against GS

    Eric Gordon? The same Eric Gordon that shot 37% from the field this season?

    Lebron has had Wade and Bosh, Kyrie and Love, and now AD...his role players stepped up...Rondo killed us in the 2nd round

    Harden had declining Dwight, aging CP3 who got injured in the WCF leaving Harden by himself against 1 of the most stacked teams of all time, and Russ who was injured to start the playoffs, and then played horrifically when he returned...

    2nd class star? Stop the trolling...

    Shaq, Gasol, Odom, Horry, etc plus Phil Jackson

    Harden’s had who? What did Kobe do when he had nothing but role players? Low 40 wins and 1st round exits...

    have a seat...I’ll destroy all these simple arguments every single time

    If Kobie does not force a trade out of Charlotte. . . . .he probably has no rings

    Who cares. So many excuses. When is Harden going to ball out and score 40 in a losing effort? That’s what I want to see.

    Too far ahead of Kareem and Russell? I’m not seeing it, even if he wins #4.
