I was one of the many who buried Lebron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers after Game 2 and I couldn’t have been more wrong. Since being down 3 games to 1 against the Warriors, Lebron James has played the best basketball in his career thrusting him from the clutches of perennial Finals loser to the savior of a city longing to bask in the championship glow. Lebron threw a franchise and a city on his back and carried them to the promise land himself.
I underestimated Lebron. I doubted he could shoulder everything to win an NBA Championship. I thought his best basketball was left in Miami. I don’t think anyone really thought Lebron could rewrite history and lead his team to a championship down from a 3-1 deficit.
Regardless of how you feel about Lebron James, you have to give credit where credit is due. He played phenomenal and godly basketball. Forget about the triple double he put up in Game 7, Lebron James averaged 29.7 points, 11.3 rebounds, 8.9 assists, 2.3 blocks and 2.6 steals during the NBA Finals. He led both teams in all statistical categories.
Stephen Curry may have been the unanimous NBA MVP, but there is no doubt who the best player in the world is and his name is Lebron James.
Lebron James is the King and all hail the king.
