Cleveland and Boston don't tip off the Eastern Conference finals until Sunday, and the Warriors and Rockets start their West title series Monday.LEBRON, OF COURSEAny list of anything this time of year basically has to start with LeBron James, still generally considered the best player on the planet even at 33 years old and in his 15th NBA season.Cleveland's star is trying to reach the NBA Finals for the eighth consecutive season – something only four other players have done, and they were all Boston Celtics. The Los Angeles Lakers have made the finals on 31 occasions (winning 16 titles), and the Celtics have gone 21 times (winning a league-high 17 titles).If the Warriors successfully defend their NBA title and go back-to-back, it will be the franchise's sixth time as the last team standing.The league MVP has played in the NBA Finals in four of the last six seasons – James and the Miami Heat won titles in 2012 and 2013, Stephen Curry and the Warriors won in 2015 and lost to Cleveland in 2016 .Of the 68 teams that have taken 1-0 series leads in the conference finals, 57 have made the NBA Finals.
