Meanwhile Lebron is paired with prime Shaq and 10 D league players. They win the title yet Shaq wins the Finals MVP.
Why would it be more impressive for Lebron to win with amazing teammates than with weaker ones?
LeBron and Wade were the best players of the redeem team. Bird and Magic won multiple NBA titles with all star teammates and MVP/MVP Candidates.
Bird played with Mchale, Parish, former finals MVP Dennis Johnson, Danny Ainge, and a bunch of good role players. Magic also had a very good supporting casts. ( Kareem, Worthy, Nixon, Scott, and etc.) These 2 teams dominated the 1980's because they were the most stacked and talented teams of all time.
