Damn, when you break it down like that...not a good look for Bron. I'ma have to drop him out of my Top 50 now.

no disrespect to Kawhi but Lebron's Cavs team last year would have taken the Finals this year 4-1

We've already seen Lebron against the Curry-Klay-Green Warriors. He needs a 27 ppg second option who hits the title winning shot on an isolation against the reigning MVP in game 7, to win.

Kawhi just beat them more decisively, without anywhere near the players Lebron had.

Neither can LeBron

Even though Kawhi just showed that he can beat the Curry-Klay-Draymond warriors in less than 7 games without a single other superstar, and without everyone acting as if it's a miracle.

Why is Kawhi getting celebrated? He played worse than all of LeBrons Finals


better stats don't mean better. Only non ballers think this way. To answer your question though both guys should celebrated because they're both amazing players. The reason why kawhi's inefficiency this finals can be better than some of brons better efficiency finals is because of there style of play. Kawhi played within the offence instead of trying to be the offence. He let other guys be playmakers while he played off ball at times.

Kawhi was also double teamed alot more than lebron. Warriors rarely gaurded LeBron like that in there finals matchups. They've always allowed Iggy to gaurd him straight up one on one.

So we're punishing LeBron for actually playing great teams in the finals unlike a certain someone

Kawhi had a great playoff run and a very good finals appearance.

However he is still not better than healthy KD and definitely not better than prime Lebron.

Again, people are already explaining this to you but maybe you're just slow like the rest of the Bran fam... LeBron needs to score a lot more because he's a turnstile on defense, he needs to score more because he's giving up a lot of points...why don't you post KD's stats? You'll find your answer there

Maybe if he would put up a bit more resistance, he wouldn't need to score so much but hey everybody, look at Bran's stats!!!
