LeBron scored 26 points, grabbed 11 rebounds and dished out 13 assists in the 121-106 win over the overwhelmed Oklahoma City Thunder. Last night was truly a coronation moment for “The King”, and consider me a witness.
I am really proud of LeBron for putting the horror that was last year’s Finals where he became the “Frozen One” (courtesy of Skip Bayless) against the Dallas Mavericks. A lot of cats would have crawled up somewhere never to be found again. Not LeBron. It took him a little while to get going this season, but he nevertheless did his thing and practically carried the Heat to the NBA title.
While I think he will win at least two more titles, mainly because the competition is scarce outside of OKC. Should anyone in the East scare Miami, even Chicago with a healthy Derrick Rose? The West is a bit deeper, but Miami should not be intimidated, no matter the foe.
Congrats again to LeBron. He said it best after the game: it’s about damn time.
