Sometimes, it’s just a superstars’ time to finally win a championship. It happened a few years ago in Miami when Peyton Manning won his first Super Bowl title. It happened again as the final buzzer sounded in Game 5 of the NBA Finals and LeBron James was a champion of the world.
Now that the 2012 NBA Finals are over, it’s time to look back at some of the interesting stats and nuggets from the series that saw the Miami Heat capture its second NBA championship in the last six years.
Now that the Miami Heat are the 2012 NBA World Champions, all that’s left is to prepare for the championship parade.
Before you start knee-jerk comparing LeBron favorably to Jordan, remember this: In his first 9 seasons His Airness won 3 rings and 7 scoring titles. In his first 9 LeBron has just 1 each.

LeBron James had 26 points, 11 rebounds and 13 assists, leading the Heat in a 121-106 rout of the Thunder on Thursday night to win the NBA Finals in five games.

As LeBron James hovers on the precipice of perhaps his first NBA championship, author Tony Meale delves deep into the King’s past, back to the days when he was royalty of the Ohio high school circuit and never lost a game – except for one.
Dwyane Wade had his look-at-me drama, falling and failing as though he’d broken his back after having a shot blocked by Serge Ibaka. But I’m thinking he was secretly jealous of LeBron’s leg cramps.
