Now that we’re down to the NBA’s version of the Final Four, are there any conclusions worth drawing other than the fact that LeBron James is seriously great and so are the chances that any team he plays for will win it all?

Memphis has a 7-foot-1 center who loves to pass and Miami takes the lead of LeBron, who does everything well.
