Shaq? Nope. Never had the assists.

Duncan? Nope. Never averaged 30.

Kobe? Nope. Never grabbed the 10 rebounds a game.

I know LeBron's going to get a lot of love over the next week, but are we underrating his run? These are "OH MY GOD!" numbers.

Seriously, we have a player in the playoffs averaging 30-10-5 on 50% shooting. Think about that. Not just for a series or a couple of games. That's what LeBron has averaged over 22 playoff games.

You're mainly talking about just championship runs right?

How many players have averaged 31/6/8 on 52% like Jordan in 91?

How many players have averaged 22/8/12 on 54% like Magic did in 87?

How many players have averaged 26/10/7 on 50% like Bird did in 86?

Lebron hasn't done any of those. They've all put up dominant statlines. Its arbitrary though when the criteria is that specific. So that doesn't mean much. Lebron is putting up an all-time great playoff run though.

Can we let other people make these threads other then LeBeon fans?


LeBron is one win away from his first ever ring. As a basketball fan, I would have loved to see him win it with the Cavs but I'm sure he will be happy once he wins it.

It's funny because before LeBron haters were saying "he doesn't have any rings, he sucks"

Now they are so low and hate their lives so much that they will say" he only has one ring, he still sucks"

Well that one ring is more then you haters will ever have. I cannot wait for those haters to shut their mouths once LeBron wins.

yeah true, but it's still very similar. lebron always get compared to magic, sometimes jordan, but i think he's way closer to bird than those guys

larry's 1988 reg. season he went 29.9/9.3/6.1

I'm not saying LeBron's run is better than any ever or anything. Just that it's pretty damn remarkable and it seems to be getting very little attention. Honestly, Dirk got more for his run last year and LeBron's been better.

He's basically had two great games

Game 5 against the Celtics and Game 3(?) against the Pacers.....otherwise it's been pretty much regular season Lebron. Nothing spectacular but nothing bad either. Not to mention how much he's been paraded to the line this playoff run so the stats don't truly tell the story. He's still had some 4rth qrt botch jobs or somewhat disappearing act....it's just that since he hasn't fell off like he did the past 2 yrs in the playoffs fans want to trump him up more than necessary

Actually the Playoffs in general have been more about the refs....

If I had to say what are the most memorable moments in the Playoffs this season they go as follows....


1. Rondo's game 2 performance

2. Westbrook's game 4 performance

3. Lebron's game 5 performance

4. Clippers' comeback Game 1 against Grizzlies

5. Spurs sweeping 1rst 2 series

6. Wade's game 4 performance

Lebron has always put up gaudy numbers which is no surprise considering how much he has the ball in his hands. Keep your stats its all about the championships. Besides you're using bias criteria. I'm sure if you look it up there are other players that have put up amazing numbers throughout the playoffs but don't fit under the 30-10-5 criteria. Hypothetically is averaging 33 points, 12 boards and 4.4 assists on 48% shooting any less impressive?

They never do the Bird comparison because Bird was a great shooter, but their roles are very similar. If LeBron wins a couple of rings playing at the level he is, he'll be knocking on the Best Small Forward Ever door.

His numbers have been amazing and he's imposed his dominance all throughout. I know what you mean though, I really want him to cap it off with a game-winning buzzer beating next game at home, that would be the cherry on top.

I don't get that feeling. People were only talking about Dirk's run AFTER it was over cause no one expecting them to win it. Lebron's has been getting alot of pub throughout the playoffs.

After Dirk's huge game 1 against OKC I saw several people talking about his run in an historical perspective. I haven't seen that for LeBron at all. Of course they've mentioned the historical prospect of a ring, but not really about how he's playing historically.
