Lebron James has weathered a very rough storm since his decision to go to the Miami Heat. He instantly became the league most "hated" athlete and in Cleveland fans, became a traitor. Many critics jumped on the bandwagon to bash this year's MVP, and even though Lebron said it motivated him, inside, he wanted to prove all the nay-sayers wrong, who said he would never get a ring and he didn't want it enough. He is, arguably, the best player in the league, but the one thing that has steered his reach is an NBA title. In order to be included in the talk discussion of greats basketball like Michael Jordan, Magic Johnson, and Kobe Bryant, all elite basketball players have achieved the #1 reason to play in the NBA……. winning a ring!
Now, the league's best player is one game away from greatness. He has been very humble in his reaction, but the feeling must be gnawing at him. He probably wants to jump in jubilaion, but he must finish his quest. They came ever so close last year, getting to the NBA finals against the Dallas Mavericks, but Lebron was critized for not being a "finisher", especially under pressure. His performance last night Yielded an awe-inspiring moment for James. In the game against the Oklahoma City Thunder, many are calling a 3-point shot he made close to the end of the game, the "shot" his career.
James caught major cramps in both legs and enduring staggering pain, James had to get help on the sidelines from trainers. After some time, he came back in with the game tied and knocked down the 3-point shot of his life. James said of the play:
"I just wanted to step up and try to make a play," said James. "If I was out on the floor I was just trying to make a play with the limited mobility I had."
Now the Heat are 3-1 and are one game away from being the 2011-2012 NBA Champs. The Thunder are facing a bad bit of NBA history…..no team has ever come back from being down 3-1 in NBA History. The Heat look to close out the Thunder in Game 5 in Miami. Thursday.

There is a new team in town takin L.A. by storm. It is a great time to be anL.A. Clippers fan. Blake Griffen pulled off what some are calling "the best dunk of all time ." Now, there have been great dunks before, but this has to be the sickest dunk ever! He already has the hype of being a great dunker but last night was off the charts. It even sent Twitterville into a whirlwind. Blake set the bar high for future dunks.
It happened in the third quarter of the game against the Oklahoma City Thunder. The best way to describe it is "purely exciting." It wasn't for show and it seems to come naturally for him. You see, he dunked on one of the top defenders, Kendrick Perkins. You have to see if for yourself. The crowd went totally wild! The dunk even made Lebron "blush" by stating his previous super dunk the day before made him 2nd now.
Check out other Blake Griffin Dunks from time's past.
Say What you will about Lebron James, but there is a reason why they call him "The King".
