The victory in the seventh game of the Eastern Finals against the Celtics allows LeBron James to reach his eighth NBA Finals in a row, ninth in total. Since 2011, James has not failed to date the appointments with the biggest stage of world basketball. And it has been distributed in the following way: 2011, 2012, 2013 and 2014 with Miami; 2015, 2016, 2017 and 2018, with Cleveland. In addition to these eight Finals in a row, LeBron adds the one reached in 2007, also with the Cavaliers.
A Balance Of 3-5 In The Finals
In the absence of what happens in this edition of 2018, whose opponent of the West will meet tomorrow and Tuesday that will come out of the duel between Rockets and Warriors, in his previous eight Finals LeBron has taken three rings. His debut in 2007 ended in defeat and it was not until 2012, in his second season with the Heat, when he embraced glory for the first time. Then, he repeated in 2013 and then in 2016 with Cleveland. That was the first championship for the franchise and the first for LeBron with a different team than the Heat.
That is, LeBron has a ring with the Cavs, and three Finals lost (2007,2015 and 2017) and two rings with the Heat and two Finals lost (2011 and 2014). The 2018 Finals make LeBron undo the tie-in series for the ring played, since to date he had divided four with Miami and four with Cleveland. He has been the MVP of the three Finals that he has taken the ring.
Cleveland Cavaliers, 5th Finals
For the Ohio entity, there is no glory without James. At least, for the moment, they have always needed The King to reach the last stage. All the Finals that harvest, that is, 2007, 2015, 2016, 2017 and these now of 2018, have been low without influence. Without him, before him, nothing, just a pair of Eastern Finals in 1976 and 1992.
