If a player averages 28.5 points, 8.6 boards and 6.7 dimes for the first 110 games of his playoff career, is he a flop? What if he scores 29 of his team’s final 30, including 25 straight, to carry a bunch of nobodies to the Finals? What if his name is LeBron James, does that change your answer?
King James is 0-2 in the Finals, and much of the Heat's 2011 L is on him. But nobody's perfect right?

Bill Russell won how many elimination games? And did Michael Jordan really have a postseason flop? As Bron Bron’s buddy Hov said “Men lie, women lie, numbers don’t.” So you tell us, How big a Playoff flop is LeBron James, really?
