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