Certain players encompass a level of greatness that others can't imitate. LeBron James is one of those players. The superstar small forward has been the face of the NBA since he came into in the league in 2003. Since his drafting, he's risen through the ranks, from all-star to MVP to champion. With 4 MVPs and numerous trips to the finals James is already considered one of the greats to play the game of basketball. One of his areas of dominance have been in the Eastern conference where he's won 6 times(4 with the Heat & 2 with the Cavs) and looks to continue commanding.
For the past 10 seasons, James has made the finals every year and never lost in the first round. Through different atmospheres, types of competition and players on his own team, the King has been to the Eastern conference finals 7 out of those 10 years and to the finals the past 5 years. Needless to say, Lebron James owns the East.
At this point, James is expected to win the East and there isn't much retort towards it. With James planning on staying in Cleveland for the rest of his career and the Cavs having two young all-stars in Kryie Irving and Kevin Love signed til 2020, the notion that this team isn't going to be at the top of the East is absurd and foolish. That is to everyone except our own Dwyane Wade, who publicly let the King know that his throne is up for taking.
LeBron knows we're coming for him
In a interview with Stephen A Smith, Wade expressed his desire to take down the comfortable and confident Cavilers who are expected to fly through the East. For Wade and the Heat to get to the finals, they know they're going to have to go through James and they want him to know that they're coming for him.
With a much improved, healthy team and one of the best starting lineups in the NBA, the Heat are optimistic that they can beat anyone, including James' Cavilers. Wade would love the challenge of competing against James in the playoffs and preventing him from taking his yearly trip to the finals. So be ready LeBron, Wade and the Heat are coming for you.
