Game 1 of the NBA Finals tips off later tonight in Oklahoma City as LeBron James and the Miami heat get another shot at a ring. For James the series also provides a chance for individual redemption after recording the worst playoff stats of his career against the Mavericks in last year’s championship round. LeBron has vowed this year will be different.
“At the end of the day in this series I’m going to play my game and try to do whatever it takes on both ends and make plays,” James said at Chesapeake Energy Arena. “Whatever the results, I’m going to be satisfied with that. I’m going to be happy with it because I know I’m going to give it my all.”
“I’m just at ease now,” James said. “I’m happy and I’m humbled that I can actually be back in this position less than 12 months later and to do a better job of making more plays on a bigger stage. So we’ll see what happens.”
