Music blared and confetti fell, the only celebration LeBron James really wanted in Miami.
He dreamed of this moment, with teammates surrounding him and the NBA championship trophy beside him.
James had 26 points, 11 rebounds and 13 assists, leading the Miami Heat in a 121-106 rout of the Oklahoma City Thunder on Thursday night to win the NBA Finals in five games.
Ripped and ridiculed for the way he announced he was leaving Cleveland and taking his talents to South Beach, it’s all worth it now for James.
Best player in the game. Best team in the league.
And now, NBA champion.(AP)
