So LeBron James and the Miami Heat took a beating in San Antonio last night. The past three games of the series have been nothing short of an onslaught so to speak.
According to the Washington Post, the only thing LeBron James plays for are championships, but unfortunately it has eluded him this year.
The post reported:
The only thing James plays for is championships and this season, he didn’t get a chance to grasp the Larry O’Brien Trophy. A 31-point, 10-rebound effort wasn’t enough to get Miami past San Antonio, and the Heat fell to the Spurs 104-87 on Sunday night. So for the first time since June 21, 2012, the Heat are not NBA champions. This four-year run with James, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh together has seen huge success — a league-best 283 wins, four straight trips to the NBA Finals to join only the Celtics and Lakers as franchises to pull off that feat, plus two NBA championships.
With all the ‘Big 3’ LeBron James, Dwayne Wade and Chris Bosh, all being able to opt off of their contracts this summer, what will the future hold for the Miami Heat? The question remains and we will obviously all have to wait to find out.
I’m curious to see what will happen to all the Michael Jordan comparisons. It seems lately King James has surpassed Kobe Bryant in the ‘next MJ’ conversations despite Bryant having five championships to Lebron’s two.
James has made it to four championships and has only won two. Of course he has a lot more years to play in the NBA to possibly acquire more championship rings, but the 3-Peat dream is gone for now. Let’s hope the MJ comparisons are gone along with it.
