I'm glad they won, I'm glad Tony added to his euphoria, I'm glad Finley has a ring, I'm glad Timmy had his fourth, I'm glad Pop won again, I'm glad another banner will be raised in the Att&t, all in all, it was a good day.
Everyone remember the "play in the Finals or watch your child be born" discussion? If the kid was being born today and I was LeBron James, I think I'd attend the birth just to avoid this game...and on a happier note, congrats to LBJ and his family on their new-born child....unfortunately, it's too late to pretend that the mother is still in labor and you need to be there. Perhaps claim you need to stick by the lady for emotional bonding, or something? Just a thought.
nevermind playing in a historic series and being able to raise your child through college with more money from 1 game than your or my ass can earn in a year....i'm pretty sure his son/daughter will appreciate trying to win a championship over the day they were born and will never remember outside of history books....congrats on lebron bringing a pretty ****ty team to the NBA finals against an unbeatable west (a west whose teams would have beaten the west 4/5 teams....)
One thing impressed me with James is his sportsmanship he really went to Spurs locker room to congratulate TD. Maybe because of the rules and policy made by Ex-Spur Danny Ferry (member of Spurs 2003 Championship team and currently Cavs GM) and Mike Brown (ex assistant of Popovic of Spurs).
Lebron has indeed become more humble since his swaggering days in high school. Back then, he made a lot of self-proclamations like "King James" or the "The Second Coming" and even tatooed "The Chosen One" on his back. He forgot that nicknames are supposed to be given by peers. However, after consistent bronze medal finishes (and getting nicknamed "Lebronze" in the European press), I guess he realised that there's still a lot more to be desired from his game.
True, he's one exceptional basketball talent with his size, power, and athleticism. He's come a long way from his erratic rookie year. The most important thing he probably learned is that he now knows what he needs to do to help his team. If he can add a little bit more to his offensive repertoire, he'd be totally unstoppable. Imagine if he developed a "baby hook shoot" and a 90% free-throw shooting! That'll be a nightmare for opposing teams.
