The Miami Heat featured prominently in the Miami sports seen this week. Yesterday they made the radio rounds, including an interview with LeBron James on The Dan LeBatard Show with Stugotz. And the Miami Herald has been chock full of articles like this “For Miami Heat’s LeBron James, Destination is Title or Bust.” It features classic lines such as:
“Last year I said, ‘OK, I’m going to prove everybody wrong.’ I was so blinded and out of whack. You try to do so many things that you forget who you are.”
LeBron explained that put too much pressure on himself to succeed. He didn’t like being hated, it was difficult being on a new team, and learning a new system. His desire to succeed and silence his critics, sucked the love of the game out of LeBron James. But despite inexplicably failing when his team needed him most, and still without any explanation as to why, LeBron James is back to being his good old self. “I’m not going out there to prove anybody wrong; I’m not asking for forgiveness,” he said. “I learned from it. I’m back to who I was.”
So there you go, Haters! You effectively got into LeBron’s head enough to cost him the championship. But beware! You are no longer in his head. He knows how to handle you. He is comfortable in the system. He’s spent months developing a post game. And he is back to his old self.
Some come next Final’s, he’s choking all on his own again.
