Can the Greatest Player of His Generation, maybe, just possibly, the Greatest Of All Time, do so much, be so great, as to overcome even this super team? James is the most important player in this series for dozens of reasons, but first and foremost, if he is the best player in the series, the Cavaliers have a chance.
