Again, those were the latest odds right before the playoffs began

So again, Lebron teamed up with Wade.. .. that alone gave him the most talent in the league and he was favored against the Spurs.. against the Warriors, he had another big 3 that was favored in 15' before kyrie went down

But in today's game, all MJ would need to be the best team is Paul george (a pippen)

"B-b-but he'd need another star to beat the Warriors!!"... You mean like HOF's Bosh and Love?.. .. lebron had enough help to win, and MJ's superior style always won with LESS (only 1 all-star)
