Ridiculous that MoWill was an all-star, purely because they were 40-11 at the break. How does Bron do it

Lebron was playing at a GOAT level.

Mo Williams was the only roster change when the Cavs improved from 45 wins in 2008, to 66 in 2009.. So he was killing it all year and people were HIGH on the all-star, who led the NBA in threes made per game

Mo's spacing helped the Cavs to 21 more wins - he was the only roster change, and his spacing style was ahead of it's time.. I've joked and called him a mini-curry.. that might sound funny, but Curry/Lebron probably win 70 games easy, since Mo/Lebron won 66..

Mo/Curry's combo style of play is infact optimal and a "70-game" style - Mo's impact would obviously be less today because everyone is playing that way now - there's a million mini-curry's out there... But back in 09', Mo's spacing was unique and therefore added more value (21 more wins and favorite status)... you guys simply aren't giving Mo enough credit, when all the evidence shows that he's responsible for the 21-win improvment

We already knew that because Mo was the only roster change in 09' and therefore responsible for the 21-win increase. We already saw that Lebron's big improvement from 04' to 05' resulted in only 7 more wins, so we know that most of the 21-win increase in 09' was due to Mo

The 2009 Cavs are like 1 of 4 teams in history who won 66+ games...and didn't ring.

Shame too.

Kobe was waiting for LeBron in 2009 and 2010. GOAT puppet commercials.

For one that line up wasn’t trash

For two it was in an era with a historically weak eastern conference

Did you even watch basketball in 2009? True question. If you did this thread should be banworthy.

**** off you fat idiot

Pretty sure the East beat the West head to head that year. And the Cavs went 26-4 against the West.

Yep! East had a winning record over the West that season, that's why Kobe's 09 ring gets an asterisk. Weak conference

Pretty sure you didn’t watch basketball in 2009 and should be perma banned for low iq Dray n Klay level posting. Stick to your over the top LGBT promotion because you don’t know shit about basketball

Exactly.

2 years both their teams were expected to make the finals.

When Lebron formed a superteam, Kobe was out of his prime. A damn shame indeed.
