The End of the LeBron James era

If (when???) the Warriors win a championship this year it’ll officially mark the end of the LeBron James era.
 He will have failed to bring a championship to Cleveland:

Like Kobe LeBron came to the NBA directly from high school; like Kobe he played far more than the allotted 82 games every season (plus various American commitments).

Kobe’s done after 19 years…LeBron’s sitting at 12 years with a bad back and yet another lackluster Cavs team.

Like Kobe James is tired…tired, tired, tired.

Meanwhile Curry is sitting at 27 years old and 6 years in the league.

It’s going to take a miracle for the Cavs to reload and get past Warriors or Spurs or even Thunder.

Ironically had James stayed in Cleveland instead of taking his talents to Miami he might have succeed. Guess that wasn’t a good decision after all…
