Now, the King is LeBron James!
By Chido Nwangwu
USAfrica: U.S NBA superstar LeBron James has led the Miami Heat to the 2012 championship, a few minutes ago Thursday June 21, 2012. Heat squad beat the youthful Oklahoma City Thunder by
121-106 in Miami for Game 5.
LeBron powered in 26 points, 11 rebounds and 13 assists.
It is a vindication for the trio of LeBron James, Dwayne Wade and Chris Bosh.
James also won the MVP for 2012 named after 1970s Hall of Fame star Bill Russell. He said “it’s the happiest day in my life.”
He added during the award ceremony that “I made a difficult decision to leave Cleveland but I understood what my future was about … I knew we had a bright future (in Miami). This is a dream come true for me. This is definitely when it pays off.”
USAfricaonline.com recalls that the owner of the Cleveland Cavaliers where LeBron played ran several nasty comments against the superstar.
Into the 2012 NBA play-offs and finals, LeBron approached every game with a stern dedication and iron-will to win, and win fair and square, He played and won like a true artful champion. Sometimes, I thought, LeBron moved to score like a super-power train… unstoppable.
