LeBron beats old team, LeBron beats best team ever (Warriors), Lebron takes home team to championship, Lebron GOAT; leads every team he's played for to championship ( *w/help)

I could say the same about your comment.
And you could say the same thing about Schisno's comment that I was responding to, which was basically the entire point of the response.

you basically implied all help is equal. It certainly is not.
I didn't imply anything. I simply said everyone has had help in response to someone pointlessly stating the obvious (that James had help). You just read too much into it.

so you weren't equating the help others have had with the help James' has had and admit he has surrounded himself with better quality help than others have?

No? Why would I? Schisno didn't clarify that and that's on him. He just said he had help.

But are we going to pretend that MJ didn't play alongside another hall of famer and for arguably the GOAT head coach for all of his championships?

Are we going to pretend Kobe didn't play alongside another hall of famer and that same GOAT head coach for his?

Are we going to pretend there weren't two HOFers in the Lake-Show of the 80s?

Who was LeBron's best teammate anyway? Wade? Love? AD right now?

Because it's blatantly obvious he didn't mean it in the literal sense? Now wouldn't that be a troll move?
Sure, it was a rhetorical response on my part, but the intent was for him to take the response and for us to perhaps have a conversation on the degree of help that was there had he chose to engage.

The intent wasn't to go into a back and forth with someone else over the semantics constantly stating the obvious and then talking in circles.

Game 1 of the Finals between the Los Angeles Lakers and Miami Heat brought in only 7.41 million viewers to ABC, according to The Hollywood Reporter. That is reportedly the lowest viewership seen for the Finals since at least 1994, when total viewers began to be regularly recorded.
Everyone knows the inevitable outcome. This finals could be as discounted as '99 Spurs Championship with David Robinson and Tim Duncan over Ewing and the Knicks during a shortened season.
