LeBron is an all-world talent. He has another all-world talent next to him and an all-star caliber PF. Even with flaws, that's enough to win a title regardless of it being the first year...wouldn't you agree?
Hell...he could've won a title with one of those Cleveland teams too.
i've said a lot of times we had a team capable of winning. it's not an excuse, it's just the reality of why we lost. a number of different things would have helped. lebron is a big target. we were also getting manhandled by tyson chandler. i also came across this gem today that only the basketball gods could have done anything about
More than 50% of Dallas's shot in the Finals were Jumpers, they scored a terrific 1.043 points per-shot on those attempts.
The Mavericks knocked down an impressive 45% of their contested catch and shoot jumpers
Even more impressive, the #Mavs adjusted field goal percentage on pull-up jump shots in the #Finals was 54.4%.
u keep a team out of the paint and contest all their jumpers, that's textbook defense that any coach would be happy with, but they were lights out. nothing u can really do about that. any number of those things playing out differently could have changed the outcome, but they didn't. a team doesn't lose just because of one thing, but him not being a bi*ch probably would have swung the outcome.
