Lebron's reply:

"He's free to believe what he wants. Just as I'm free to believe that MJ didn't beat anybody who was any good."

LOL Lebron is still free to believe in Santa Claus, too, then.

MJ benefited from having a better team and coach.

55 wins without him.

Anyone wanna bring in Phil's feelings on Bran the Fraud?

That great coach wouldn't coach this diva. Not in billion years.

I still don't get the need to do this. To act like the west wasn't the better conference while Mj was winning too. You had talent so deep out west that you never knew who'd come out. We always knew the bulls could be penciled into the finals. When the east was tougher? Mj was at home watching the finals with all of us. And Mj also himself played in what was maybe the weakest years of this "weak" east and missed the playoffs twice.

And MJ dominated the weak East for 3 years in a row
And LBJ dominated the weak East for 8 years in a row

What's the problem

Benefited... by going 1 vs 11 all the way to Finals instead of losing earlier or even missing playoffs... winning 3 times against amazing Finals teams...

or.....

Suffered... by losing to the actual best team in the playoffs which he could always ONLY meet in the Finals... i mean if Lebron was in the West, he would lose to the correct teams that were actually better at the correct place (Conference Finals)... and he would have won the championship all those times he did win them... he would have been 3 of 3 in the Finals... instead of 3 of 9....

But i mean if he came from the West his Championships would have happened against Horrible (Far Worse) Finals teams.....

So im not sure if that is better....

EAST - Being 3 of 9 but winning against one of the best teams in Finals ever...

WEST - Being 3 of 3 but winning against the weakest Finals teams ever...
