The guys, lead by Lebron James ,walked off the court over to The First Lady to a rousing standing ovation from the crowd. The game ended in a 98-71 win. The US team are th favorites to win and have been greatly compared to the 1992 "Dream Team," which included the likes of Michael Jordan, Scottie Pippen, Charles Barkley, and Magic Johnson. Michelle seemed estatic at the win!
Lebron James finally has his ring. In pure Nike fashion, they created a commercial "The Ring Maker" which shows a jeweler who appears to be following James' career progresses. It seems as if it was just a matter of time for Lebron to claim his prize and the final product is a ring for a champ. Despite the nay-sayers and criticism, Lebron lead the Heat on a spectacular run!
Two Words: World Champions. Despite all the critics Lebron James received when he decided to go to the Miami Heat, he finally achieved the one thing he has waited his entire NBA career: WORLD CHAMPION. Lebron and the Heat beat the Oklahoma Thunder in a Game 5 series121-106, and was helped by a fine supporting cast. Mike Miller shot 3 pointer after 3 pointer after 3 pointer. Lebron did what Lebron does and took it to the hole, passes, finish the execution. So Congratuations to the Miam Heat from My Fabulous Style
Lebron James has weathered a very rough storm since his decision to go to the Miami Heat. He instantly became the league most "hated" athlete and in Cleveland fans, became a traitor. Many critics jumped on the bandwagon to bash this year's MVP, and even though Lebron said it motivated him, inside, he wanted to prove all the nay-sayers wrong, who said he would never get a ring and he didn't want it enough. He is, arguably, the best player in the league, but the one thing that has steered his reach is an NBA title. In order to be included in the talk discussion of greats basketball like Michael Jordan, Magic Johnson, and Kobe Bryant, all elite basketball players have achieved the #1 reason to play in the NBA……. winning a ring!
Now, the league's best player is one game away from greatness. He has been very humble in his reaction, but the feeling must be gnawing at him. He probably wants to jump in jubilaion, but he must finish his quest. They came ever so close last year, getting to the NBA finals against the Dallas Mavericks, but Lebron was critized for not being a "finisher", especially under pressure. His performance last night Yielded an awe-inspiring moment for James. In the game against the Oklahoma City Thunder, many are calling a 3-point shot he made close to the end of the game, the "shot" his career.
James caught major cramps in both legs and enduring staggering pain, James had to get help on the sidelines from trainers. After some time, he came back in with the game tied and knocked down the 3-point shot of his life. James said of the play:
"I just wanted to step up and try to make a play," said James. "If I was out on the floor I was just trying to make a play with the limited mobility I had."
Now the Heat are 3-1 and are one game away from being the 2011-2012 NBA Champs. The Thunder are facing a bad bit of NBA history…..no team has ever come back from being down 3-1 in NBA History. The Heat look to close out the Thunder in Game 5 in Miami. Thursday.
