Journey To A Title

Since being labeled the next big thing when he was at St Vincent St Marys High School, LeBron James had a ton of pressure  to be a superstar. He was drafted number one overall by his hometown Cleveland Cavaliers in 2003 and went on to win Rookie of the Year. James would lead the Cavs to the playoffs several times and took them to the 2007 NBA Finals where they were swept by the Spurs. He went on to win back to back MVP’s in Cleveland in 2008 and 2009. In 2010, he decided to leave his hometown and head to South Beach and join the Miami Heat. He paired himself with all-stars Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh and declared to the NBA that they planned on winning multiple titles together. The Heat went on to win the 2011 Eastern Conference Championship, but were outplayed by the Mavericks in 6 games. Humbled and frustrated, LeBron and company came back hungry and took out the Knicks, Pacers and Celtics in a 7 game series to get back to the NBA Finals. After losing game 1, the Heat established control in the series and went on to win the next four to win the 2012 NBA Finals. James went on to record a triple double in the clinching game five with 26 points, 13 assists and 11 rebounds and was named NBA Finals MVP.
