Tiger Woods weighs-in on LeBron James vs Michael Jordan debate

LeBron James goes glass and drills the Tissot Buzzer-Beater to lift the @cavs to victory in Game 3! And of those who remained on board, many more dropped off when Kyrie Irving was shut down for the season.

This week, we speak to Yahoo Sports' national NBA correspondent Michael Lee about what makes LeBron James unique and how he can be stopped (it involves quintuple coverage).

With the Cavs down 84-88 with 2:24 left in the fourth quarter with possession, LeBron James nailed a 26-foot three-pointer to bring Cleveland within one.

As a result of knowing what they were supposed to do, the Cavs demolished the Raptors in four games, winning by an average of 15 points a game. Only Marcus Smart remains from that Celtics roster.

LeBron James tied National Basketball Association legend Michael Jordan's record of scoring double digits in 866 consecutive games when the Cleveland Cavaliers beat the Charlotte Hornets 118-105 on March 29. They move on thanks to Al Horford, the omnipresent veteran, and a flock of youngsters who refuse to wait on the future.

Just give LeBron the ball and let him do the rest.

Furthermore, the Raptors, who had been ousted by the Cavaliers from the playoffs in the previous two seasons, had fortified their bench this season to augment a solid starting cast and appeared equipped to end James' quest to reach his eighth straight NBA Finals.

LeBron leads all scorers in the 2017-18 playoffs with 34.3 points per game. However, James has been an effective shooter with his shooting field goal percentage.

And she's certainly done her party plenty of good on that front, most notably with her fundraising. "I don't take offense at that", she said.

Game 4 Monday night was a mere formality.

LeBron had another playoff triple-double in this potential elimination game against the San Antonio Spurs. James ranks third in the National Basketball Association in postseason assists per game, which is pretty impressive when you consider he's the NBA's leading scorer.

But among all this postseason greatness, which performances have stood out most?

"Being able to do it not just for one year or one game or a little spell, they're able to do it for a number of years, and accumulate highlights that we will always look at".

"You slap a couple All-Stars together, you can maybe win two of three, but eventually players get traded".

The argument remains unending, but James is doing his best to win over doubters, carrying a lackluster Cavaliers squad to the Eastern Conference Finals.

-LeBron James is averaging 41.4 minutes per game.
