You'll notice I didn't even mention MJ, clearly the top of the pack. There was no stopping Jordan, period. His fade-away was unstoppable.
Yes, I believe LBJ is better than all those guys. He's the only player other than maybe Magic that can play every position on the floor at a top level (see Magic starting at center in 1980).
If anything this series showed the world that LBJ is the best player in the NBA right now, not Steph, not KD, not anyone else. This is still LBJ's league, period.
