LeBron James is fresh off of his second NBA title and is living the high life. Silencing the haters for at least the rest of the summer, James left nothing to debate when he clinched the Heat’s second NBA title with this jumper late in the 4th quarter of Game 7.
We let you all know that King James had landed the cover of the latest Sports Illustrated earlier today, and now we have some of the first quotes from the article. One that immediately stood out, is what James admitted about the biggest jumper of his life via ProBasketballTalk.
“I know it wasn’t the magnitude of MJ hitting that shot in ’98, but I definitely thought about him,” James said. “It was an MJ moment.” He paused as a turn of phrase came to mind. “It was an LJ moment.”
It was smart of LeBron to make it clear that it wasn’t Jordan’s shot in ’98, but ultimately I have no issue with him comparing his shot to a MJ moment.
LeBron is aware of all of the comparisons to Jordan that will follow him throughout the rest of his career, and for the most part has seemed to embrace it. The sky is officially the limit for James.
Oh yeah, and I doubt he takes a break for baseball in the middle of this potential dynasty.
BEST OF MAXIM
LeBron James, the greatest player in the world, with MVP and NBA Titles to his name cannot escape one glaring flaw, and that is his hair running away from his face. Sports Illustrated captures this perfectly for the cover of their new issue, commemorating James’ second championship with the Miami Heat in as many years. Is it mean-spirited for us to make fun of LeBron’s early...
Over the past year, the debate as to who’s better, LeBron James or Michael Jordan, has only intensified. Jordan certainly had more titles and career accolades, but many are making an argument that James is the more dominant player.
But from James’ perspective, who better to learn from than the master and winner of six NBA titles?

MIAMI (AP) -- LeBron James' final jump shot of the NBA Finals for the Miami Heat left him thinking about Michael Jordan.
James told Sports Illustrated for a story released Wednesday that he spent time during this year's title series watching Jordan's iconic, title-clinching shot for the Chicago Bulls against the Utah Jazz in the 1998 finals. So when James made a jumper...
LeBron James didn’t mute the comparisons between himself and Michael Jordan by winning his second NBA title. If anything, he only made them louder.
With James and the Heat claiming the championship with their Game 7 win over the San Antonio Spurs on Thursday, a rapper in West Philadelphia was inspired to put James in the same class as Jordan and Magic Johnson. The song by Leaf...
Not surprisingly, in light of his postseason heroics leading the Miami Heat to a second consecutive NBA title, LeBron James snagged the cover of the current issue of Sports Illustrated. But what is most fascinating about the photograph isn’t the clever way in which LeBron’s face is reflected in the trophy, but how his extreme [...]The post LeBron’s’ SI cover: Great pic or...
The Heat won the title days ago, but I’m not sure anyone told LeBron James that. Here he is taking a picture with…people (didn’t bother to look them up, what am I, wikipedia?), and there on top of that huge forehead is that hat. The one from postgame. And the club after. And the victory parade. Does LeBron not shower? Does he know other hats exist in the world? I’m launching...
Wonder how LeBron mustered up the confidence to knock down that clinching shot in Game 7?
He watched the best.
LeBron James said he spent some of his down time between playoff games studying Michael Jordan's Bulls and of course the man himself.
So when LeBron hit that jumper over Kawhi Leonard with 27 seconds left in the decisive game, it should have looked very familiar to...
Fresh off his own Championship, LeBron James sent out this Instagram message following the Chicago Blackhawks epic Stanley Cup clinching victory over the Boston Bruins in Game 6.

Apparently James has been on the bandwagon of the Blackhawks all season. He...
LeBron James has made it clear that he will not contemplate free agency of 2014 now, but the Miami Heat forward was adamant maintaining the team's current big three -- along with Pat Riley and Erik Spoelstra -- is critical.

The Miami Heat held their championship parade today after winning the title in seven games against the San Antonio Spurs. And while the players were making their way to the final destination in the double-decker bus, NBA Finals MVP LeBron James, had a few close calls with the overpasses.
The Heat’s legion of haters must have planted those there.
Check the video out here...
LeBron James stood atop a double-decker bus with a cigar in his
mouth for the parade, then kissed the championship trophy when the
party moved indoors. Shane Battier blew kisses to the crowd, Dwyane
Wade raised three fingers aloft and Chris Andersen flapped his arms
in a nod to his ''Birdman'' moniker.
