but lebron was ALWAYS under the pressure. he was always the one who was blamed and also always the one who took responsibility for fails.
you mentioned KD but where did KD play? you dont care about that right? did kd shit on him before? oh well...you also mentioned previous fails but again, you didnt mention bosh or wade being injured. kyrie or love being injured.
lebron is there for 17 seasons. 17 seasons under the pressure and he was almost always able to deliver individually even when he hadnt help at all and they lost. kawhi had everything what it takes this season, they made that team to beat the crap out of lebron and they werent able to reach even conf final and meet him after 3:1 leading and he is one of the biggest reason behind it.
and even if we look at mvps, titles, points, assist etc etc. who is better? lebron...
you cant deny that this was big fail from whole clippers and especially kawhi and pg and you also cant deny that if we look at them in their career overall or even now(this season with lebron being freaking 35) then lebron is way more complete player with better and more consistent performances. under the pressure or not.
i was maybe exaggerating bit. kawhi is amazing player ofc and still "only" 29 years old but this was his franchise/legacy play off and he failed.
