Time to stop the LeBron has no-supporting cast nonsense, because a superstar player doesn’t reach the NBA Finals all by himself

I keep hearing that LeBron James doesn’t have a supporting cast.

Like to the point where you can picture the Cleveland Cavaliers’ starting five consisting of James, a welder, the Tooth Fairy, a bus driver and an elk.

The Sixth Man could probably be Indians manager Terry Francona, though I suspect that kind of exertion might not be good for his heart.

Silly to think those five could help LeBron win a title, right?

Just as silly as saying the guy reached the NBA Finals without a supporting cast.

LeBron is about to become a free agent. If you want to see him without a supporting cast, the solution is easy:

Have him sign with the Orlando Magic, Phoenix Suns or Brooklyn Nets.

He probably couldn’t make the playoffs with any of those ragged rosters … apologies to Devin Booker, not his fault the Suns are atrocious.

Gosh, having the Tooth Fairy as one of your teammates is better than having anyone on the Brooklyn Nets show up at tip-off.

Hopefully, the no-supporting cast nonsense will end but hard to halt that stuff once the social-media clowns start getting worked up about it.

And it will rev right back up like a volcano in Hawaii should the Warriors start beating up the Cavaliers.

Oh yeah, the stellar national Game 1 preview can be found here — http://content.sportsdirectinc.com/basketball/nba-preview.aspx?page=/data/NBA/matchups/g5_preview_1.html

People also are whining that the Warriors and Cavaliers are meeting in the NBA Finals for the fourth straight season.

So what, are one of the teams just supposed to give up their spot to appease people?

The Toronto Raptors were once again the pretenders we all know they are, and the Boston Celtics didn’t have enough to close out the Cavaliers.

Same with the Houston Rockets. They pointed all season toward ending Golden State’s reign and they crumbled when everything was on the line.

I know, Chris Paul got hurt. Good for him because this time he can avoid the folding under the pressure label.

The right two teams are in the final and both teams have a supporting cast.

Not good for Cleveland that five-time All-Star Kevin Love will likely miss the opener with a concussion. Wait, did I say five-time All-Star?

That is a pretty good start for a supporting cast, huh?

Let me know how many five-time All-Stars the Orlando Magic have on their roster.
