It’s no longer accurate to say LeBron James isn’t clutch. After getting bailed out in Game 6 of the 2013 NBA Finals, he rose to the occasion in Game 7, hitting jump shot after jump shot when the San Antonio Spurs dared him to shoot and now his team has won back-to-back titles.
But although LeBron now joins Michael Jordan and Bill Russell as the only players to win back-to-back regular season MVP and Finals MVP awards, he couldn’t have done it without his teammates. Chris Bosh was the main man in Game 6 and Dwyane Wade arguably had more of a claim to the Finals MVP award than anyone and we can’t forget the Miami Heat wouldn’t have made it to Game 7 without Ray Allen.
The Spurs’ last hurrah came up just short, but the old guys almost did it. As a sports fan in general, it was incredible to see their sportsmanship after the Game 7 loss and their class as an organization is unrivaled in any level of sports in the world.
For the Heat, what’s next? Will the team keep the Big 3 together for a chance at a three-pea or should they break them up like many are suggesting? Comment below and let us know!
