I am a Michael Jordan fan but I’m continuing to sway towards LeBron James as he continues to prove himself playing against teams like the Golden State Warriors. Now that Golden State has won the 2017 NBA Championships over the Cleveland Cavaliers I think most people are going to say the discussion and debate over Jordan vs James is over. Well, I’d disagree and say things are only heating up. I’ll do a post comparing the two now that the season is over but one key difference between LeBron James and everyone else is that James is the only player to average a triple-double in the NBA Finals. James averaged 33.6 points, 12.0 rebounds, 10.0 assists and 1.4 steals over the series setting another new record. Considering the team that he was playing against, I don’t care what anyone wants to say about James, he’s absolutely in the discussion for NBA’s Top 5 All Time greatest basketball players and this is just another record to help solidify his place in the history books. What do you think? Does this record help push him to the number 1 spot, or does the Warriors victory end all discussions?
Check out LeBron James full video highlights from game 5 against the Golden State Warriors on June 12th, 2017 at the Oracle Arena. I know most of you don’t really understand what we’re witnessing and experiencing right now but this triple-double is history, my friends. This is greatness; when you can lose to a powerhouse but still go down in the books with a record to be proud of.
And if you didn’t know, prior to this game Lebron James set the NBA Finals record for most Tripe-Doubles when facing elimination in NBA Finals history, and is now the 3rd All-Time NBA Finals scoring leader passing Michael Jordan.
And you can view highlights from the game including Stephen Curry, Kevin Durant, Kyrie Irving, Klay Thompson, and more ~
