James' teams have now won their division 10 straight seasons.  He is the only person in NBA history to ever achieve that (the 50's/60's C's did it 9 straight years).

Whoopee

My reaction as well. Seems like divisions will be gotten rid of at some point because they are so meaningless so record may stand forever.
I don't think it is a big deal in the scheme of things, but any time you do something that has never been done before it is still impressive.  I was honestly surprised that Bill's Celtics and Magic's Lakers never did it (the Lakers also had 9 straight seasons of winning the division).

In other news, the Celtics of the 50's/60's won 11 NBA championships and Lebron only 3. Guess Lebron can have that division titles record.

Yep. Also, the 80s Lakers won nine straight, and had 54 and 58 wins the season before and after the streak, respectively.  Magic finished with five titles.

You gotta look at the competition. The east has generally been subpar as a whole lately, while in Russ' day the powerhouses were all in the big northeast cities.  - Knicks and sixers.

Sure and the Cavs won 50, 50, 45 including a trip to finals before that division winning streak started as well.

The Celtics won 52+ games every year of Birdís career other than the season where he missed 76 games.

If anyone does not need a cheerleader for them it is Lebron. Guy has argued he should be the MVP this year, repeatedly talked about how he is aging like fine wine, wrote an instagram congratulating himself for the amount of points he scored. Yet, here we are with a thread pumping up how impressive it is he has won a bunch of division titles in a year his team finished 4th in a god awful conference.

Related to this it would have been fascinating to see what kind of numbers Bird could have put up coming out of highschool and without a back injury. How many titles does he have? Bird only had, what,  10 full seasons before his back made him a shell of himself?

I was quite young when Bird was at the tail end of his career so I can't say I know how was officiated.

And the trips to Ponce de Leonís gig in FLA for the curative ďwatersĒ or juices or whatever.

yep and that is a great accomplishment even if it doesn't really mean anything in the grand scheme of things.  Just as it is to have never lost in the 1st round of the playoffs or to win 10 straight division titles or make 7 straight finals.  All great accomplishments, all things that don't really mean much in the grand scheme of things.

So have any of Hill, Nance, Hood or Clarkson even made a significant contribution for the Cavaliers so far in the playoffs?

Lebron literally had to go 200% and put up 40+ point games just to advance past the 1st round in 7 games.

But remember after the BOS and OKC games after the trade deadline when the Cavaliers were reportedly back and finally had a young, athletic team that could challenge GSW in the Finals! Finally a legit team around Lebron that can go all the way! ::)
2018 Mock Trade Deadline (New York Knicks)

Roster: Porzingis, Kanter, Hardaway Jr, Julius Randle, Schroder, Beasley, Alex Abrines, Jarrett Jack, Frank Ntilikina, Lance Thomas, Kyle Singler, Josh Huestis, Ron Baker, Trey Burke, Luke Kornet, Isaiah Hicks
