With the World watching, LeBron James once again showed everybody just what a special talent he is.
His accolades, of which there are many, almost don't do him justice.
In the last 14 months, LeBron has gone from a pantomime villain to one of the most revered sportsmen on the planet. You only have to look at what he's won in that time to see just how much he's accomplished:
- 2x NBA Most Valuable Player (4th Overall).
- 2x NBA Champion.
- 2x NBA Finals Most Valuable Player.
- Olympic Gold Medal (U.S National Team).
Not many players can boast that sort of success in their entire careers, James has done it in just over a year.
This latest NBA championship, may be the sweetest of all.
While his first championship got the proverbial monkey off his back, repeating the feat is an ambition few manage to achieve. Although they were considered the favourites throughout the season, Miami have struggled to assert their dominance at times in these Playoffs. Almost all of their roster has struggled at times in the postseason, either with their shot, their defensive intensity or their health.
Everyone but James.
