The Golden State Warriors defeating the Cleveland Cavaliers in five games to win the 2017 NBA championship dropped LeBron James's NBA Finals record to 3-5.
And that was enough for hoop fans to seemingly put the comparison between King James and Michael Jordan to bed. After all, MJ did go a perfect 6-0 in the Finals. So, sorry Bron, but people ain't trying to hear it anymore. Well, at least right now.
And people used Bron's loss to kill comparisons between him and the GOAT.
A triple-double does constitute rising, bruh. We just think the Warriors had too much firepower for King James to overcome.
Not on MJ's watch.
This is just foul.
The Finals edition.
Do you agree?
