    If Lebron Was Playing In The West How Many NBA Finals He Would Have Made?

    I would say 1 or 2 max. He was riding Dwayne Wade's coattail in Miami and he was lucky to win a few finals. In the West he would have to fight just to get to the 2nd or 3rd round.

    Just remember when Jordan was winning his 6 finals the East was the elite conference and once you won the East the finals with West were the cupcakes.

    Damn Pavy, you're better than this. The West was better than the East back in the Jordan's era as well. The Bulls were very fortunate they didn't have to play those Rocket teams back then. The Rockets owned Jordan and the Bulls but couldn't get out of the West. Learn your history.

    Lol you hating on Kobe much? Kobe in his prime shits on Lebum. Lebum doesn't have that killer instinct you need to be one of the best. He'll have to settle for top 10

    Which backs up my point. They use to dominate those Bulls teams but couldn't get to the finals. They were the one team that could neutralize Pippen and kinda slow down MJ.

    They couldn't get to the finals but they were going to beat the bulls based on reg season success? Yet bulls beat those teams that t rockets couldn't beat? Mac you hated on james when he left but now it's all good?

    Basketball is a game of matchups.

    Lebron and Kobe different kinds of players.

    Kobe a better scorer but Lebron excels in ways that Kobe did not to the same extent.

    That didn't seem to matter to jordan. No matchup was too good for him.

    Rockets barely beat the Knicks in 7. Bulls dominated Knicks. To say that Jordan would have lost to the Rockets is absurd.

    You are too young. Go watch the Bulls finals on Netflix. One man vs 5 defenders and he made them look silly play after play.
