A triple double by LeBron James helped Miami crush Oklahoma and finally stake a claim to championship rings – just the second NBA title in the franchise’s history - following a failed attempt in last year’s decider against Dallas Mavericks.
The final score, 121-106, speaks for itself as LeBron James, Dwayne Wade, Chris Bosh and Co. easily recovered after losing the first game of the series to emphatically win the final series 4-1.
James finished the game with 26 points, 13 assists and 11 rebounds as another five players also went into double scoring digits for the Heat.
The best player in the game plying his trade in the best team in the league, he is now NBA champion, too. “Happiest day of my life,” LeBron said after the game.
“It means everything,” James stated moments before being named the playoffs MVP to go along with his regular-season award. It took the King nine long years to win his maiden NBA title.
“I made a difficult decision to leave Cleveland (two years ago) but I understood what my future was about,” he said, adding: “I knew we had a bright future (in Miami). This is a dream come true for me. This is definitely when it pays off.''
