The Miami Heat were the underdogs going into the NBA Finals series against Kevin Durant and the Oklahoma City Thunder. But the Thunder didn’t have LeBron’s steely determination or his fiery will to win.
“Happiest day of my life,” said LeBron after the Heat defeated the Thunder 121-106 to win the NBA title Thursday night in Miami.
“It means everything,” James said after the game. LeBron hoisted the NBA trophy before accepting his Finals MVP award. “I made a difficult decision to leave Cleveland but I understood what my future was about. I knew we had a bright future… This is a dream come true for me. This is definitely when it pays off.”
After the game, an emotional LeBron embraced his fiancee Savannah Brinson and their children LeBron James Jr., 7, and Bryce Maximus James, 5.
In post game interviews LeBron said, “It was the hardest thing I’ve ever done. You just put a lot of hard work into it and one day it will pay off for you. It paid off for me tonight.”
Never once mentioned his die hard Heat Fans and how they have been with him since he betrayed the Cleveland Cavaliers. Nevertheless this is a well deserve win.
