Editor's note: Please welcome to the Project Spurs family Kyle Boenitz. Kyle is an aspiring sports writer and if his name sounds familiar, it's because you might have seen him on San Antonio's News 4 WOAI Sports Roundtable. Kyle will be writing weekly on NBA news and stories aside from the Spurs here at Project Spurs. We are excited to add him to our outstanding team. Enjoy his debut post on Miami Heat's LeBron James.
Miami Heat's LeBron James had the most to lose this year.
It wasn’t going to be Dwyane Wade, he stayed with his team and had already won a championship. It could have been Chris Bosh, but he just doesn’t seem to enjoy the spotlight as much. Not to mention, people found out pretty quickly that Bosh wasn’t as much of a prime-time player as advertised.
No, it had to be LeBron. He put a target on his back the second he decided to publicly announce his future plans on live TV. He made it worse when his team decided to hold a victory celebration before the season even started. Even if you didn’t think a trio of all-stars was worthy of being the best team in the NBA, you still wanted to beat them more than anyone else.
So when all the other teams had fallen, only one remained, and that team stood between LeBron and silence from all the haters. Four wins and he could finally rest easy, he would have his championship that he burned so many bridges for. It might all seem worth it. But when the dust settled, the Dallas Mavericks were victorious and LeBron had lost more than just the series.
