I narrowed it down to forwards but I do think the Bulls would have matched up well against the Mavs.

He stopped Kawhi in 2013 only to turn around and lose and give up FMVP to him in 2014.

Same with Durant. Beat him in 2012 when he had a superior team then Durant comes back with a better team and beats him twice and wins FMVP both times. If he wins another one then he'll be tied with Lebron in both rings and FMVPs. Crazy.

Curry isn't a forward but he couldn't stop Curry from winning a championship.

In fact Lebron hasn't stopped any noteworthy player from winning a championship.

He stopped Wade in 2011.

But was 2014 really his fault with a declining/aging Wade and blood clot Bosh? 2011 was an ultimate fail though, but Dirk isn't a SF so that doesn't really "fit' this weird thread agenda.

It's not like they were swept. They beat the Spurs in Game 2 and were going back home to retake home court advantage.

Then Pop told Kawhi to "take over" and the Spurs never looked back.

The washed up Mavs took the same Spurs team to 7 games that year iirc in the first round.

Sometimes it's about match ups and a lot of times it's about effort. During that Finals series after Game 3 the Heat looked defeated. Lebron and Wade were visibly distraught in Game 4 and Game 5 then we add in the infamous "cramps" and it starts to get embarrassing.

Lebron is known for making excuses whenever he loses. That elbow shit he pulled was a comedy routine. Then the cramps, then the hand injury.....

I don't want to rag on him too hard because I'm more or less indifferent about him but following his career has been very entertaining to say the least.

It wasn't as self-destructive and obsessive as me being a life long MJ hater but I was younger back then. Once my life picked up I had to let my hate go.

2012 OKC was favored with their 3 All-NBA players which included the league Blocks leader and runner-up DPOY. Then add 6MOTY to that list of players.

Yes, Durant came back with a better team in 2017 and 18 than OKC had in 2012 with a total of 4 All-NBA players that included DPOY and the 2 leading 3pt shooters in the league.

2 titles (soon to be 3) that nobody recognizes / respects.

Well we cant be too sure now. We know Terry Porter (legend) Craig Ehlo (legend) John Starks (legend) Jeff Hornacek (legend) Dan Majerle (legend) and Byron Russell (legend) was very tough competition back in the 90s
