It’s the first time since 2010 that we won’t see LeBron James in the NBA Finals.

Well, folks. After 8 straight years in the NBA Finals, LeBron James will be absent in the 2019 rendition. I mean, LeBron didn’t even make the playoffs which has been weird, but a Finals without him is even more weird. Heck, Draymond Green even said so himself.

“It’s just weird,” Green said. “More as a basketball fan than anything: ’Damn, Bron not there.’ It’s super weird. You always relish the opportunity to play against a talent like that.”

So what was the world like the last time we had a playoffs without LeBron James? Well, the year was 2010 and things were a lot different. And here’s to hoping we get playoff LeBron back soon.
