LeBron sealed his first title in Game Five of the series against the Oklahoma City Thunder. After disappointment the season before, this was his road to redemption. In sum, he came to Miami for a title. If he didn’t get it in 2012, then there would have been a lot of questions about his mentality.
But he was brilliant as he put up a triple-double. His 26 points, 13 assists, and 11 rebounds were massive in the Heats’ victory. James was as relieved as anybody else after finally achieving his dream. Few things can beat that feeling as he won the Finals MVP award.
We’ve talked about the achievement of winning a second title in a row. But now let’s focus on his Game Seven against the San Antonio Spurs. James was breathtaking. King James scored 37 points as he inspired his team to the win. LeBron effectively scored the winner with less than 30 seconds left to play.
He also added 12 rebounds and five assists in a spectacular performance. Meanwhile, he earned his second straight Finals MVP award win. This was a phenomenal display from a legend of the game. This should have kicked off a dynasty like the Bulls, but we all know what happened next.
Of course, this has to be the greatest moment in King James’s back catalog. After four years in Miami, the prodigal son returned home. Furthermore, he inspired them to the NBA Finals in 2015 but they couldn’t get past the Golden State Warriors. However, a year later they were back again.
It was Game 7 and the Championship was on the edge of a knife. After two scintillating 41-point performances in the previous two games, LeBron had one more massive contribution. Just when Andre Iguodala looked like he was about to score, LeBron blocked the shot. Then Kyrie Irving went the other way and the rest is history,
