Lebron Wins Title, so shut up!He did it, finally he captured what took him 9 years of struggle and criticism to take. The beautiful Larry O Brien trophy by blowing out the heavily supported Oklahoma City Thunder 121 to 106. Years of being called choker, not a "4th quarter guy", a dude who doesn't care, he shut every hater or critic cough *Skip Bayless* cough by once again showing off his pure talent by notching a triple double of 26points 13 assists and 10 boards he also hit a clutch three in game 4 after cramping up earlier on. that put the heat up late and put Miami in a 3-1 series strangle hold. No one on my twitter feed ripped on him one bit they simply were in awe of this talented talented superstar. He became only the 7th player in NBA History with 40 points, 15 rebs and 5 assist in the playoffs over the last 5 seasons, think about that for a second, that is crazy. Lebron also hit clutch free throws down the stretch that led Miami to their title. Lebron also was the third THIRD person In NBA history to led his team in points, assists, and rebounds in the Finals and captured the Finals MVP for most valuable player in the Finals. This dude can do it all, we have not seen this amount of mixed talent since the Jordan era possibly. More importantly he is still at a reasonable age and right in his prime, we could see this dominance go for a very very long time. In 2007 he went to his first career NBA finals against the San Antonio Spurs and came up short as the Spurs swept the young one man armed Cavs in 4 games, he did not get blasted as it was expected the Spurs would win, though he would repeat having best records for Cleavland posting a 60 win season one time. Sadly though he would face early exit after early exit and that's when the critics and supposed haters kept whispering into Lebrons ear saying he shrunk during the big game, during the 4th he quit on his team.
His image changed from "Chosen One' to the choker.It took 6 years until Lebron became a free agent and then did the famous and controversial "Decision" that was televised in his hometown Akron of all places and announced to the world that he would take his talents to South Beach. This put the world against Lebron even getting him to say " I embrace this villain role". He would join his pals Dwayne Wade and Chris Bosh in Miami in what was said as the biggest free agent splash ever. Did not take long for those egos to arise when soon after a downtown outside celebration of sorts by having all three be introduced and dance their horrible dance moves and so boldly say " we're not here to win one, two,three,four, that little 10 second comment that put more pressure on this man than anyone. Despite season struggles and days of sobbing they made the NBA finals almost to their goal, only to have it halted and to have the door slammed right in their face by the Western Conference Dallas Mavericks. The hate that was directed more specifically at Lebron was enormous. No team was called out and judged more than this team as soon as the celebrating went down expectations were that they would win right off the bat. I thought that it would take time for them to jell. Lebron got mocked, hated on, used in pretty much every punchline till it got tiresome there were even some discussion of splitting this team up.
Fly High Lebron, you are still young. Oh and a future rap career?
