LeBron James won't be in the playoffs for the first time since Reggie Miller was in the playoffs. A fourteen-year playoff streak has officially come to an end as the Lakers were mathematically eliminated from the postseason last night:
The 2005 NBA Playoffs were the last to not include LeBron. That was Reggie Miller's final season and the Thunder's last playoff series win as the Seattle SuperSonics.
I won't necessarily miss LeBron, but I will miss Lance Stephenson.
