Hey what if the 100% player also retired for two yrs. in his prime after winning 3 in a row, then returning and, wait for it..... winning another 3 in a row. Then being broken up by a cheapskate owner.
And also imagine losing only to the eventuall nba champs the two previous seasons, with your next best players being 2nd and 3rd yr players.
Good bye, next time I suggest you garner the false courage to post such nonsense under 1 of your prior usernames.
Question. What do LeFruad and his fans have in common, what attracts each to each other? LMAO. Two peas in a pod, x’s however many.

1. Frauds
2. Cowards
3. Clueless
4. Clowns
5. Absolutely all the above.

I vote 5. What say you.

Hey! Interesting reply and i respect your opinion.
This is a strictly a percentage question and never did i mention a player for either situation.

Cheers!

Hmm, 3 & 6 is 33%
The answer to your question is.. I’m going out on a limb here, lol.
Maybe, just maybe.. 6 for 6, thus 100 epic %.
Perhaps some context, should be considered. Who did the player that reached the finals more than 6x’s beat in their conference finals? How many wins did those conference finals opponents reach? Did they actually themselfs win a title? What level of underdog were they, and why? Was it due to lack or talent or overwhelming talent for the fav, likely answer both, fking both.

BTW, joined March 2020, welcome to the board. LMAO!


Thanks! It's a pretty great forum and love it here

Might sound funny but some people would prefer that. Both options have a valid point but also some negatives

I'd rather win in the Finals every time and not ever get swept in it. Yeah. Jordan is number 1. The excuses on here is comedy.

Yeah Jordan preferred to get swept in the first round.

I'm sure he loved being 16th rather than top 2.

Again, the question asked is completely different than lebron and mj because its assuming the same amount of titles.

For the Lebron supporters, would you rather be 3-6 in the Finals or 6-0?

I’m sure you love, knowing the fact that, just yesterday MJ according to espn’s poll. Utterly destroyed your girl via poll. A complete slaughter, as in SLAUGHTER! In not 1, not2, not3, etc,etc , but like 17 seperate poll questions. Enjoy that fact, I certainly do. Question have you ever competed in , ( was gonna say, actual b-ball competition) but I suspect lowering the bar is best for your life time experience, so in Anything? As in Anything, cause your posts clearly suggest... Not, as in absolutely nothing, as in last picked. As in always last, never 1st. Still holding that grudge huh. Always last, I’d bet my money on that.
Last, as in very last. Yep, that’s my take. Fking last. Last!!

So Paul George is the reason Carmelo Anthony struggled on defense all these years...

Going to the finals but only winning Half means:
1. Your playing in a weak conference.
2. You have a good/great team but are considered a choker.
3. Have to live with what ifs for the rest of your days.

Yep, the EC was a joke for a majority of the years LBJ made it and once the EC got a bit harder he bolted for the WC. Anytime he faced a team that was better run and played a better brand of basketball LBJ looked so outclassed. Biggest case in point against the Mavs, 2nd case in point against the Spurs.

Do you realise what choking is...?

It isn't choking if you weren't even the favourite to win or faced the greatest team of all time..

Depends how many seasons you play, lol.

I'd rather play 10 years and win half the time than play 2 years and win twice.

3-6 easy, who wants to beat up old unathletic teams every year and win it without even a game 7 in the finals.
