This year LeBron James left behind the hate and went back to playing basketball with “love and dedication.” The result was his first National Basketball Association championship.
James scored 26 points and the Miami Heat tied an NBA Finals record with 14 3-pointers in a 121-106 victory against the visiting Oklahoma City Thunder to clinch their first title since 2006.
James, chosen the Most Valuable Player in the Finals, also had 13 assists and 11 rebounds. Mike Miller added 23 points, including seven 3-pointers, as Miami won the best-of-seven series four games to one a year after losing to Dallas in the Finals in James’s first year with the Heat.
“I know what got me to this point: hard work and dedication,” James said during the trophy ceremony. “Last year I played with a lot of hate. I play this game with love and dedication.”
Congrats to King James...you deserve it!
