Watch: What the world was like last time LeBron wasn't in the Finals

What the world was like before LeBron James' seven straight finals.

Just how dominant is LeBron James? As this video points out, the last time he wasn't in the NBA Finals, Brett Favre was quarterback of the Vikings.

That's right, he has been to seven straight.

Here is a fun look back at what the world was like the last time James was absent from NBA Championship contention, courtesy of SI's The Crossover.

James' run the last seven years has been undeniable. Even Bill Lambeer, one of the famed foes that went up against Michael Jordan admits,"I'll take LeBron James, absolutely" when it comes to the old debate, MJ vs. LeBron.
