This is the best LeBron James we’ve ever seen
The Cavs crushed the Celtics, 117-104, in Game 1 of the Eastern Conference Finals and LeBron toyed with the Celtics all night in a dominant 38-point, 9 rebound, 7 assist performance that left most people with functioning eyes thinking sweep.
Today in The Herd, Colin said LeBron is playing at the highest level of any time in his career, in his 14th year. He’s shooting better than ever from outside, more efficient than ever, and just got close to a month’s rest. If the Cavs sweep, he’ll get even more.
Even though the regular season was unwatchable, the Finals grudge match between the powerhouse Warriors and the Cavs will be all that anyone remembers if it comes anywhere near to living up to the hype.
With LeBron playing like he is now, Colin thinks the Cavs have the slight edge in the matchup.
“The gap is not closing. The gap is widening.”
If the Warriors could sweep the Cavs they would be the greatest team ever
Most of the NBA media has hotly debated whether LeBron would surpass MJ with another title over the Warriors’ superteam, but not many are talking about what a historical accomplishment it would be if Golden State could manage to go undefeated through the Western Conference and somehow manage to dominate the Cavs in the Finals.
Right now, the Warriors are winning by record margins of victory, and even though Colin still gives the Cavs the edge in the Finals, the possibility exists for Golden State to unseat the Bulls as the greatest single team ever.
“If the Warriors go 16-0 or 16-1, and win by 17, you’ve got your greatest team ever.”
