It's already been proven that LeBron can't win without a superstar on his team (Wade) unless it's against an injured team that has a starter suspended for the close out game 5.

Real all time greats can win titles with zero or one star next to them.
Why can't Op's brain function properly?

Kobe did it with another top 10 player EVER. Not to mention the goat coach perhaps. And his last with not only a star but also a dpoy/all defense team 3rd wheel.

Kawhi arguably did it with a low key stacked squad. And allstar running mate, the 2019 MIP which is usually the precursor for an allstar appearance. A former dpoy/allstar. Oh and basically a supporting cast that made the conference finals without him and Gasol/green already. Gets to face an injured squad for the chip. Great fortune don't ya think?

Dirk did it with no star teammates, that much I agree. But he did have a pretty solid team around him. HOF pg, dpoy/all defende bigman, former allstar defensive wing, and former 6moy 2nd option. That Mavs team was just tough.

Curry did it with one? no comment needed.

Hakeem did it with zero and then one, only the 2nd true statement in your post. And even then dream had a tough squad himself. Hell OT even made the allstar team 2 seasons prior to their title.

MJ did it with one and an all defensive 3rd option. Goat coach. 2nd 3peat? same but replace grant with the greatest rebounder to live and one of the greatest defenders ever. 2 Hof players.

Bird did it with 2 allstars each time. plus a former fmvp, plus a former Mvp off the bench.

You're basically saying "for the most part you are right on MJ, Hakeem, Dirk and Kawhi.......but those team were tough"

Nah bro the truth is actually my thing, and that "essay" ? I wouldn't be the one to even think of mentioning length of any post when you have so many empty ones yourself. How bout you start making them count?

According to OP, Bran turns stars into role players.

So really, Lebron has NEVER had all star help according to OP.

In a way, you're right.

The multiple stars are there for his fragile mentality, though.

He utilizes them when he needs them.

Stifles their stats during meaningless times.

2016 was fixed.

Regardless, Love was great defensively that series.

Put away his ego and did what it took to help them win.
