lebron beat the best regular season team of all-time in 73-9 warriors in the finals and after loss the warriors all-stars cried and called another prime mvp for help because lebron "a one man dynasty" in their minds was just too much to handle. the only reason they won the previous year was because you can only do so much with dellavedova and mozgov. they got huge contracts shortly after because that's what lebron does, he makes his teams look like superteams.

Please do not allow this to dissuade you from any forms of appreciation and enjoyment. By all means, appreciate your guy. Enjoy his successes. Cloud nine that sh*t.
But about that other thing?....
