Another NBA title, another Finals MVP award for LeBron James.
James earned his fourth Finals MVP trophy as he steered the Los Angeles Lakers to their first NBA championship in a decade with a six-game conquest of the Miami Heat.
The four-time NBA MVP churned out a triple-double of 28 points, 14 rebounds, and 10 assists in their closeout 106-93 win.
“We just want our respect,” James said after the game.
“[Lakers general manager] Rob (Pelinka) wants his respect. Coach (Frank) Vogel wants his respect. Our organization want their respect. Laker Nation want their respect. I want my damn respect, too.”
James hardly looked like the 17-year veteran that he is as he normed 29.8 points, 11.8 rebounds, 8.5 assists, and 1.2 steals in the title series to be named Finals MVP in all of his 4 championships.
He joined Michael Jordan as the only players in NBA history to bag 4 Finals MVP plums and the first player to clinch the award with 3 different teams after winning it with the Miami Heat and the Cleveland Cavaliers.
“It means a lot to represent this franchise. I told [Lakers owner] Jeanie (Buss) when I came here I was going to put this franchise back in the position where it belongs,” James said.
“To be a part of a historical franchise, it is an unbelievable feeling.” – Rappler.com
