Let's take a look at LeBron's top 5 playoff performances. After overhauling their roster at the National Basketball Association trade deadline, the Cavaliers were ostensibly the most vulnerable they had been since James' return to the franchise in the summer of 2014 after four seasons and two titles with the Miami Heat.

The incessant comparison flared up again on Monday afternoon after James single-handedly carried a lacklustre Cleveland Cavaliers to a fourth straight conference finals after dismantling the no.1 seeded Toronto Raptors 4-0, prompting golfing great Tiger Woods to settle the matter.

"It's like night and day", said Tatum, who led his team with 25 points in Game 5 to eliminate the Philadelphia 76ers on Wednesday. He was also hailed as the Finals MVP thrice and NBA MVP four times. "It is so much more gratifying to appreciate all of the greats without knocking the rest".

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).

"I said what's up", Tatum said of his first encounter with James prior to the season opener between the Cavs and Celtics. That volume combined with that efficiency puts him in rare company. Every player out here can have one good week and blow away the field.


To go along with his 34.3 points per game, James trails only Rajon Rondo, John Wall and Draymond Green in the playoffs with 9.0 assists per game.

James hasn't been turning the ball over frequently, either. However, LeBron does have a huge advantage over Jordan as LeBron is currently playing in the National Basketball Association and Jordan has been retired for a while now. Harden, however, has a higher usage rating than LeBron to go along with a lower true shooting percentage, assist rate and assist-to-turnover ratio. The Cavs made short work of the Raptors, sweeping them in a fashion no one predicted.

Tatum has since played three games against James, including the first contest of his own professional career.

There's no doubt that of the players on the list above, no other player was doing more for his team than what LeBron is now doing (and continues to do) for the Cleveland Cavaliers. IN showed it could gouge Cleveland in more ways than one, and that series went seven games. Boston is going to win that series, and it's sure as hell going to give LeBron and Company a run for their money.
