It's a mark of the greatness of LeBron James that all his crazy performances in this wild NBA postseason have followed comparisons with Michael Jordan.
James Harden, this year's most valuable player, and the most valuable player of last year's finals, Kevin Durant, are still alive in these playoffs, but it has hardly been discussed who is the best player in today's game .
This year's conference final, where James led Cleveland almost alone to the final with a 4-3 victory against Boston while Durant and Harden have missed opportunities to knock out the other, has been good for the star the Cavs in today's game.
Harden could win the MVP, and Durant could go back as MVP of the Finals, but James is better. It's that easy.
But better than Jordan? That is a question that is impossible to answer, but a debate that becomes more intense after James's performance of 35 points, 15 rebounds and nine badists in the seventh game, which Cleveland coach Tyronn Lue qualified with the seventh game of the 2016 NBA Finals as the best of the Ohio native's career.
The hot shots were fired before James even left the court in Boston. There were many ready to label it as the new KID.
But that only ignited the pro-Jordan crowd.
In the middle of the madness, there were also some pretty decent jokes.
It was enough to send Olympian Lolo Jones to bed.
Thank God for Kobe Bryant, to whom we are giving the last word.
