Another trivia:

This is the 36th time that a team has held a 3-1 lead in the NBA Finals. Of the previous 35, the team with the lead has gone on to win the title 34 times — James and the Cleveland Cavaliers in 2016 becoming the exception when they won three straight games to defeat the best team of all times - Golden State.

BLASPHEMY......



If the Lakers can win just one of the next three games, James will become the first person to lead three franchises to NBA championships.

If that doesn’t equate to Michael Jordan’s six titles in one place, what does?

If that’s not the best argument for LeBron James being the greatest player ever, what is?

Hoy...hindi pa tapos ang series...
Baka maging bato pa ang pera na...




Scottie Pippen on who should win Finals MVP if the Lakers win the series:

"The whole team for being in that damn Bubble."
"I have to take my hat off to LeBron James – he's my clear choice."

Source close to LeBron James says NBA title win ‘cements him as the G.O.A.T.’
By Justin Benjamin
Updated: September 30, 2020



Los Angeles Lakers forward LeBron James is on a mission to win a title.

According to Joe Vardon of The Athletic, one person close to James believes he will be the greatest of all time if he knocks out the Miami Heat in the 2020 NBA Finals.

“These Finals aren’t about LeBron versus the Heat,” said one person who’s known LeBron personally for years. “These Finals are about his legacy. If he wins, it cements him as the G.O.A.T.”

James, 35, is considered one of the best players in NBA history.

However, most sports pundits don’t believe he’s surpassed Chicago Bulls legend Michael Jordan for the top spot just yet.

After all, Jordan captured six championships in the six NBA Finals that he appeared in. Furthermore, the five-time MVP averaged 30.1 points, 6.2 rebounds and 5.3 assists per game over the course of his career.

As for James, he is still working on his resume. The three-time champion is posting 27.1 points, 7.4 rebounds and 7.4 assists for his career.

The four-time MVP has reached the NBA Finals 10 times in his career. That includes a remarkable stretch in which he made it to the title series eight consecutive times from 2011 to 2018.

Bad news Lebron Fans...
It seems like AD is the hands down winner of 2020 Michael Jordan trophy as the Finals MVP, should they win the ring...






_________________

Anthony Davis is in line to win 2020 NBA Finals MVP
by Mike Cruz
October 7, 2020



With the shot clock running down and Game 4 still hanging in the balance, Anthony Davis jab stepped and sized up Bam Adebayo at the three-point line. The Los Angeles Lakers superstar rose up and launched from beyond the arc over the outstretched arms of the Miami Heat All-Star with a little over 40 ticks remaining in the fourth quarter.

Splash. Nothing but nylon. Dagger. The shot put the Purple and Gold up 9 with 39.5 seconds to go.

Davis let out a big roar. And so did LeBron James. The two Lakers superstars celebrated as they realized they were just one win away from achieving the goal they had set out when they joined forces back in June of last year.

James and Davis are both having an incredible Finals so far. It’s no surprise that Los Angeles is holding a commanding 3-1 lead because of their dynamic duo. History has written out that whichever finalist goes up 3-1 ends up lifting the Larry O’Brien trophy (we all know the only time that didn’t happen).

The Lakers are inevitable at this point. With that, the only question remains: which of LeBron James or Anthony Davis will win Finals MVP? James has a chance to make history by becoming the only player ever to win Finals MVP with three different franchises. But it’s likely he doesn’t end up on the history books for this one because Anthony Davis has as good a shot as LeBron does to win the 2020 Bill Russell trophy.

I know it’s not over until it’s over, but if we were to prematurely choose the Finals MVP after four games, I’d probably go with The Brow.

Don’t get me wrong. It’s extremely close between the two Lakers superstars. But I’d give the edge to AD because of his massive impact in their crucial Game 4 win over the Heat.

Davis arguably had the slight lead over James through Games 1 and 2, with the former averaging 33 points in those two games to the latter’s 29 points. The 6-foot-10 big man had a massive dud in Game 3, where he finished with just 15 points and five boards. And that may have lost him his chance of winning Finals MVP. But LeBron had a bad game as well in the loss, where he played sloppy with the basketball and committed eight turnovers, including four in the fourth.

Now, after four games and three Lakers wins, LeBron has the edge over Davis in terms of stats. The Akron native is leading Los Angeles in points (27.8) , rebounds (11.0), and assists (8.5). Meanwhile, Davis’ numbers read 25.8 points, 9.3 rebounds, and 3.3 assists to go along with nearly two swats through four games.

The counting stats favor James so far in this series. But Davis deserves the highest credit for arguably swinging this series back into Los Angeles’ way with his defense on Heat star Jimmy Butler in Game 4.

Los Angeles couldn’t find a way to stop Butler from getting to the paint in Game 3, where he finished with a historic 40-point triple-double. With that, the Lakers looked to their versatile defensive anchor to get the job done.

Davis embraced the challenge and did an incredible job on slowing down Butler, especially in the second half. AD may have finished with just 22 points and nine rebounds on Tuesday, but his imprint on the all-important win went way beyond the stat sheet. Davis was a juggernaut on the defensive end all night long, altering shots at the rim, and most importantly, neutralizing the Heat’s All-Star leader.

And as an added bonus, Davis also had the Finals MVP moment of the game, with the dagger three he made to put Miami away.

Nonetheless, choosing between James and Davis is a toss-up at this point. With LeBron leading the way and facilitating the offense, and Davis anchoring them on the defensive end, two-generation stars have been equally as important for the Lakers in these Finals.

Of course, we’ll need to see how The King and The Brow perform in the rest of the series. But our pre-mature pick through four games goes to Anthony Davis.

Isiah Thomas picks LeBron James in GOAT debate
by FROM THE WEB
1 HOUR AGO


ONE of Michael Jordan’s fiercest rivals chose the side of LeBron James in the “Greatest of all time” conversation.

Isiah Thomas took to Twitter on Friday, Manila time to label James as the GOAT for not just his brilliance seen on the court, but also having the numbers to prove it.

"The best and most 'complete' player I have seen in my lifetime is @KingJames on and off the floor. He passed the eye test and the numbers confirm what my eyes have seen in every statistical category. #GOAT let it be known!” the former Pistons star posted.

Thomas’ snub of contemporary Jordan is not surprising, considering their well-documented rivalry that saw them face off in several heated playoff battles starting in the late 1980s.

Jordan, though, remains widely regarded as the GOAT, although James is closing in as far as championships are concerned. The Los Angeles Lakers are up, 3-1, against the Miami Heat, in the ongoing NBA Finals, and closing the series out would put LeBron two away from matching Jordan’s six titles.

What do you think of Thomas' opinion on the GOAT debate?

Another record for LeBron James as Lakers try to finish off Heat
by TIM REYNOLDS, AP
2 HOURS AGO



LAKE BUENA VISTA, Florida — Another game, another record for LeBron James.

Game Six of the NBA Finals between the Los Angeles Lakers and the Miami Heat on Sunday (Monday, Manila time) will be the 260th of James’ playoff career, lifting him into sole possession of first place on the league’s postseason appearances list.

James is in his 17th season. After missing the playoffs in his first two seasons, he has reached the postseason 14 times in 15 years. His teams in Cleveland, Miami and now Los Angeles have gone 14-0 in first-round series with James on the roster, 11-3 in second-round series and 10-1 in the conference-final round.

He had been tied with Derek Fisher for the top spot on the playoff list with 259.

To put James’ postseason longevity into perspective, consider that 260 games is the equivalent of 3.2 full regular seasons. And out of the 4,489 players to have appeared in an NBA regular-season contest, 63% did not (or in the case of active players, have not) gotten into 260 games.

That means James’ postseason career alone has included more games than most NBA players’ entire careers.


Game Six of the finals also would be the 55th NBA Finals game of James’ career, tying him with Jerry West for fourth-most in league history. Bill Russell played in 70, Sam Jones in 64 and Kareem Abdul-Jabbar in 56.

LeBron James has the most career triple-doubles in the NBA Finals, with 10 triple-doubles.
