But when it comes down to it, great players win games. And LBJ is one of the best of all time, already. Yea, they're not as talented of a team outside of him, but shit he's still a part of the squad and he wins games for them. I agree in the sense that I doubt he can win a title with the Cavs' current roster, but he can single-handedly carry them through the playoffs.
Not to mention the NBA loves to see LBJ get deep into the playoffs... so his team is a virtual lock to get the calls when they need them...
