Just a week ago, star small forward LeBron James was scrutinized for his recent comments of race playing a factor into his decision of taking his talents to South Beach and play for the Miami Heat.
Now here he is, in the pre-season and already firing it up for his new team. James has totally made me forget about what he did last week. Now here he is, a leader to the team already after just two games—and note that they were pre-season games!—and already catching attention to people from all over the world.
He just proved the naysayers wrong right off the bat. He is no “Robin” or sidekick.
He is a leader. Just like what he was in Cleveland.
And now he is much more hungry. Very very hungry. If he is acting like he is in the pre-season, just you wait—he’s going to get better when the regular season rolls by!
With Dwyane Wade out for the next two weeks, it just makes No. 6 so much more thirsty and hungry to feed off other teams. LeBron has all the talent he needs.
He can—no, he will—guide the Heat to success and triumph. This is LeBron’s destiny. All eyes were on him. He was the leader to begin with. Not Dwyane Wade. LeBron wants to earn a ring, earn one for Chris Bosh, and a second one for D-Wade.
James has a lot of positive things coming in for him. He is in for a possibility of a quintuple-double, the first player to ever do that in the NBA. Probably ever in the game of basketball!
He also has a chance to beat the Chicago Bulls‘ winning-record of 72-10. If James can win more than 60 games with a crappy supporting cast of the Cleveland Cavaliers, who knows what he can accomplish with the team he is with now?
James should ignore what has happened to him in these past few months. It’s time to get to business. The Heat are entering the season with a hopeful influence to the league. They will prove people wrong. They will show how dominant they are.
The Heat are ready to make some noise.
Chris Bosh, Dwayne Wade.
And more importantly, LeBron James.
