An April report suggested that Chicago Bulls icon Michael Jordan gave green light to the production of “The Last Dance” documentary for one major reason. The championship Lebron James won with the Cavs in 2016. According to this report, the Bulls legend felt threatened by LeBron’s 2016 championship run.
Brian Windhorst from ESPN reported that Jordan felt like his throne “was vulnerable” for the first time after King James won the title in 2016.
LeBron’s great talent smashed teams in the NBA. He led the Cleveland Cavaliers to a win over the Golden State Warriors. The 2016 NBA Finals put LeBron on the top. This was one of his greatest accomplishments.
Jordan and the Bulls had the NBA record of 72 regular-season wins in the 1995-96 season. However, MVP Stephen Curry and the Golden State Warriors capped the 2015-16 campaign with a brilliant 73-9 record, snatching the honor of the Bulls.
Winning the 2016 title was the only thing the Warriors should have done. It was easy for them to confront the Cavaliers, but LeBron spoiled their plans. The Warriors were getting ready to finish their historic season. They were 3-1 on the Cavaliers in the 2016 Finals.
LeBron did magic back then. He did the impossible. He did something no other player has done ever before. LeBron carried the Cavaliers on his back, leading them from a 3-1 deficit.
LeBron was successful with the Cavs in 2016
During the 2016 NBA Finals, LeBron had 29.7 points, 11.3 rebounds, 8.9 assists, 2.6 steals and 2.3 blocks per contest. That’s not something you underestimate. It’s more than obvious that Jordan felt threatened. LeBron defeated an undefeated team. He defeated the Warriors.
LeBron is playing with the Los Angeles Lakers now. The NBA suspended the season in March, players can’t wait for the season to return. LeBron and several other high-profile players have had a meeting to talk about it. They all want to go back to the floor.
If the season resumes, LeBron can easily win his fourth title. He made a promise, and everything points to the fact that he will keep it. LA hasn’t won a title since Kobe Bryant’s time.
