    How many more NBA Finals appearance does Lebron have left in him

    He's 30. I don't see the East getting any better, so Lebron will probably be back in the Finals at least 2-3 more times.

    Good ?, I would say he will be in the finals 3-4 more times winning 2 of those appearances.

    East is a cake walk for Cleveland. He will gets to the final every year till he retires. Who in the east will challenge? If East was half good, Cleveland wouldn't be in the final this year.

    the real question is what team will he play for next season?

    i heard he wants to play with Kobe in LA.

    supposedly not enough night life/ media attention in Cleveland.

    He is getting older man and definitely slowing down so if he does not surround themselves with good players it'll be hard to get to two more

    His desire to win will diminish as he gets richer and older. He would have no problem being a Scottie Pippen to someone else being the main guy..........which is key. After watching him last night I can tell he doesn't have it in him to carry bad teams anymore. He is crying out for help.

    Unfortunately they'll be favored all next year to win it. Probably should just skip watching next season because they'll most likely win it all

    I don't know what a strong desire he has right now to win he has always seem to of been a flake and lack the killer instinct

    Well if they trade him to Golden State then Curry can carry him to a few more.

    Lebron needs to drop about 20 pounds. Or else he is going to have a really bad injury in the next couple of years.

    I would say for as many seasons as he wants to play.

    The NBA is a terrible product.

    There is only maybe 5 guys who can be mentioned in the same sentence as Lebron and Curry.

    There is just a major lack of super stars in the NBA. So yeah I honestly cant see Lebron ever not making the finals again for as long as he plays.

    There aren't even any good players in the draft with potential to be a super star like Lebron or Curry.

    In baseball there are arguably 30 MLB pitchers who on any given night could be the best.

    In the NBA the talent discrepancy is huge.

    no one thought Curry would be close to what he is when he was drafted, or even 2 years ago.

    thankfully so, as I have a lot of his rookie cards / autos

    I noticed you didn't ask how many more rings he'd get, seems Finals appearances is his thing.

    He has what, 5-6 years left at the top? Probably makes in the Finals in all but 1 or 2 of them. East just sucks so bad.

    Probably ends up being like 3-7 in the Finals
