He's also the only one to get swept twice in the finals.

Is this the era of team USA losing to France and Serbia?

He's the only guy to form a great cast in a conference that didn't require a great cast to make the Finals

5 weak casts made the Finals from 01-09', yet Lebron stacked the deck to ensure Finals runs from 11-18'

So instead of continuing to get 1 seeds in the weak conference and having easy paths like 2009 and 2010, he failed those years and angrily stacked the deck from that point forward

He's never non-competitive a c.unt, plain and simple.. a "take-your-ball-and-go-home" type of dude

He also showed it was possible to give up FMVP 4 times to his direct assignment and suffer the two most lopsided finals losses ever.

ITS

JUST

The era where they had to field a redeem team, because the chosen one failed to bring home gold twice in a row(something new for the US)?

A college kid won gold in MJ's era, why couldn't Lebron in '04? Why did he lose to Puerto Rico?

poor Larry had to beg teenage Melo, Wade and Lebron to support Team USA since the league was such diluted with talent

So the NBA was weak during those years, but Lebron could neither make the playoffs his first years nor win MVP until 5 years later?
