Every year since he was drafted, but I won't be surprised if the Heat do win it all this season. It won't matter, though. No matter how many rings the guy wins, there will always be an asterisk next to his name.

LeBron James*


*Guaranteed a championship for Cleveland, but ended up being second fiddle in Miami to win a ring.





/LeBron hate




The guy is a talented baller, but I just can't get over his arrogance. Every time I try to like the guy, he says something unflattering to dismiss any adoration.





What does ^^^ all that have to do with winning titles? Nothing. Just went off on a tangent.

Maybe you two just weren't meant to be together?

He's the best player in the league and you're going to keep hearing that until he's no longer the best player in the league.

The fact that he as a ball player and as a team keeps getting better. Plus more experience.

But hes like everyone else in life. He is grinding and working hard to achieve his goal. The only difference is the spotlight and scrutiny.

Sure people said he had a chance to win a ring by now but obviously he and his team were not ready.

Its not easy to win a ring in the nba. Some of the all time greats never did. And other greats such as Shaq and jordan only started winning around lebrons current age. They too had to go through struggles.

If he and his team keeps improving they could very well win a couple rings over the next few years.

People are so quick to jump on and criticise people if they dont achieve their goals. Calling them failures and chokers. But nobody great has ever succeeded without failing numerous times first.

4...5 perhaps. Shaq might hold the record for most years being "Next years champs" though. He had people saying it from like 1994 to 2000.
