LeBron James Wins His First Championship

LeBron James wins his first NBA Championship trophy in 2012!

YEAH! BOOM! LeBron wins his first championship! You all watch that game last night? He looked like a man amongst boys out there. The Miami Heat ball movement was the difference in this game for sure. They were rotating it around and hitting the open man for the shot all night long. And… THEY WERE ALL MAKING IT! Mike Miller! Chalmers! Battier! So much fun. SO LeBron James got his first NBA championship trophy, his first NBA Finals MVP, and another season MVP. I’d say 2012 was a successful year for King James!

Watching the post game joy and interviews by LeBron – I couldn’t help but be excited for him. He truly understands that he was somewhat of a “db” last season. Playing the game for the wrong reasons. Playing with HATE and note LOVE. You could tell. THis year he was 10x better and it showed. People grow up! Way to go LeBron. It’s all the first step in shedding that negative public image he obtained after the “announcement” was made.

LeBron James = NBA Champion in 2012!

Is his legacy complete? Thoughts?

Wizards making fun of King James

Add LeBron James’ “crab dribble” to the lengthy list of talking points in the Cavaliers-Wizards rivalry.

“I’ll have to check in my book to see what a ‘crab dribble’ is. I’m not quite sure,” Washington interim coach Ed Tapscott said with a smile Monday. “I do know that we don’t seem to get away with very many of them, whatever they are.”

James and the rest of the Cavaliers were given Monday off by coach Mike Brown, so the world will have to wait for more thoughts from them as to whether The Chosen One did, indeed, travel a day earlier when driving for a potential tying basket in the closing seconds of Cleveland’s 80-77 loss at Washington.

Referee Bill Spooner waved off the play and called the violation. Asked to clarify his ruling, Spooner wrote in an e-mail to a pool reporter: “3 steps on the move to the basket. Basic travel call.”

The NBA did not immediately respond to a request from The Associated Press to comment on whether Spooner made the correct call.

On Sunday, James said it was a “bad call” and that “they need to look at it and they need to understand that’s not a travel.”

In giving his take on what happened, James said: “I watched it again, and I took a ‘crab dribble,’ which is a hesitation dribble, and then two steps.”

Asked Monday if he knows what a “crab dribble” is, Wizards All-Star forward Antawn Jamison said, “I know what a traveling is. … I think we all know what traveling is.”

Washington’s other All-Star forward, Caron Butler, gave a similar answer.

“‘Crab dribble’ is when you, uh, travel,” Butler said. “That’s the hottest thing on the market right now.”

Turning to a more serious explanation, Butler said he thought James switched his pivot foot.

“I couldn’t do it in AAU, I couldn’t do it in college,” Butler said, “and obviously I can’t do it now.”

LeBron to team up with Ice Cube

According to ESPN The Magazine, Ice Cube and his CubeVision production company is partnering with LeBron James to produce a TV show based on James’ high school life as a teen aged basketball celebrity. The currently untitled show is described as “Friday Night Lights-meets-Entourage,” and will follow an inner-city 15 year-old prep star who is transplanted to a small town school and forced to come of age while dealing with media pressure, shady agents and the jealousy of his friends.

“It’s a grounded character study of teenage life in small town America, but it’s also an exploration of the American Dream and the wish-fulfillment aspect of what his life has become,” said Matt Alvarez, President of CubeVision, who pitched the concept and is also an executive producer on the show.”

Ice Cube has been busy ramping up TV and movie production under CubeVision including a sitcom based on police life for NBC and his upcoming comedy Janky Promoters co-starring Mike Epps and featuring Young Jeezy
