The NBA Finals is over and the Cleveland Cavaliers made history by winning 3 straight games after being down in the series 3-1. Beyond the Cavaliers historic comeback, Lebron James was on his own historic ride as well. James led both teams in all major statistical categories.
On the flip side of things, you have Stephen Curry, who is coming off of his 2nd consecutive league MVP and his performance was subpar in the finals. He looked good but not great and often-times looked out of place. People will blame injuries but the fact is that in Game 7 of the finals, you go 4-14 (14 points) and 4 turnovers, that’s completely unacceptable for the “unanimous” MVP.
Love or hate Lebron James, but this NBA Finals he showed up. He played like a player that was not going to be denied and he wasn’t. It’s time for people to stop comparing great players with other great players and just start respecting greatness.
