Lebron James has made history this season by being the first player in 50 years to make it to the NBA finals for 6 seasons in a row, and being the first non-Boston Celtic player to do so. Lebron started this dominance in 2011 with the Miami Heat against the Dallas Mavericks, and has continued to so, even with leaving Miami at the end of the 2014 season and re-joining the Cleveland Cavaliers, and currently awaits the winner of the Golden State Warriors and Oklahoma City Thunder to face in this year’s finals series. However, as remarkable this achievement is, Lebron has a 2-4 losing record in the NBA finals, his 2 wins coming in 2012 and 2013 in Miami, and has not won the NBA championship in Cleveland, losing in both 2007 and 2015. While Lebron’s dominance over the league is astonishing, things don’t look promising this season as while Cleveland are the best team in the Eastern Conference, the Western Conference has had a much better season this year, and both Golden State and Oklahoma City have had better seasons and have a better team than Cleveland do this year. Can Lebron beat the odds this year and capture his third ring?
