LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers reached the NBA Finals on Tuesday night, defeating the Atlanta Hawks in a four-game sweep. This marks the fifth consecutive time James has reached the championship series, having done so with two different teams. 

Because of injuries to Kevin Love and Kyrie Irving, James has been forced to carry a short-handed Cavs squad through these playoffs. But which LeBron playoff run was more impressive: when he took this 2015 team to the Finals, or when he did it the first time with the 2007 Cavaliers?

Find out as Bleacher Report's Ethan Skolnick examines 2007 LeBron vs. 2015 LeBron and provides his take on which was a more difficult road to the Finals in the video above.
