"Then I'm looking at what LeBron James has done and his body of work".
His eighth straight NBA Finals sets up as one of his most hard, flanked by a largely unheralded set of teammates who force him to do much more at 33 than most other players are ever asked. "The way he plays the game, his demeanor, where he comes from". Sunday's coverage of the Cleveland Cavaliers' Game 7 Eastern Conference win over the Boston Celtics matched an all-time basketball ratings high for the network.
James poured in 35 points, grabbed 19 rebounds and dished out 9 assists in the Game 7 victory in Boston. The game was not pretty at times, but Cleveland overcame all the adversity to win the biggest game of the season thus far. He didn't really catch on to that one until last summer when he joined his old coach, Tyronn Lue, who was an assistant on the Celtics when Green played there. His path was much more challenging personally as well, as he dealt with a serious heart issue that caused him to miss an entire season in 2011-12. The Warriors dominated the Rockets 115-86 on Saturday to force a decisive game seven which will take place Monday in Houston.

While the Cavs are clearly the underdogs ahead of their fourth final in a row against Golden State, Thomas believes LeBron doesn't have to win another title to prove he's better than Jordan. "That's every day. Every day that you're totally focused on this, and he's gone past that eight straight times".
The Cavaliers will play the victor of Monday's Game 7 of the West finals between Houston and Golden State.
Celtics coach Brad Stevens said, "I thought the biggest moment of the game was when we couldn't extend the lead in the second quarter".
The offseason will be one where the Celtics, who earned the 2nd-seed in the Eastern Conference in 2017-2018, don't just look like one of the top teams in the East on paper.
