Lebron missed the playoffs in 2004 and 2005 when his Cavs were 9 seeds

Of course, if his 9 seeds had been 8 seeds instead, they would've been swept in the 1st round by the champion Pistons, similar to how mj's 8 seeds were swept by the champion celtics..

Lebron is just lucky that he was a higher seed when he finally started making the playoffs, so he played arenas' wizards instead of getting swept by champs..

Tough era bro

42-40 record gets you 9th seed in 2005

30-52 record gets you 8th seed in 1986

LeBron is 0-2 vs Javele McGee in the NBA finals and is getting the best version of Javele McGee by far.

Wouldn't make the warriors roster, tho.

47 wins gets you the 6 seed in 1989

50 wins gets you the 2 seed in 2007, and 53 the 1 seed


Also, nearly all teams made the playoffs back then (16 of 23 teams, or 70%), compared to only half today (16 of 30)

So teams in the bottom third of the league MADE the playoffs back then, whereas they miss it today.. so it was sheer circumstance that the lottery bulls made the playoffs that year with only 30 wins
