A Look At LeBron's Life Since The “Decision” (Original Video)
Last Thursday, Miami Heat superstar LeBron James finally captured his first-ever NBA championship. LeBron's otherworldly performance in the 2012 NBA Finals (which included a triple-double in the Game 5 clincher) appears to have put to rest the long held belief that he could not get it done in a high pressure situation.
While many observers (including the staff of iFolloSports.com) still believe that the self-proclaimed “King” took the easy way out, when bolting from Cleveland to join Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh in South Beach, it is an indisputable fact that LeBron stepped up and absolutely led his team to a title.
LBJ earned series MVP honors after averaging a magnificent 28.6 points, 10.2 rebounds and 7.4 assists, during the course of the five-game series.
For the entire four rounds of the playoffs, the “Chosen One” tallied an unbelievable 30.3 points, 9.7 rebounds and 5.6 assists per contest.
In the nearly two years since LeBron told the world that he was taking his talents to South Beach, iFolloSports.com has covered his transformation from local hero to league-wide villain, via our very unique perspective of reporting.
iFolloSports.com began its coverage shortly after LeBron made the “decision” to leave the only state he had ever called home, when we showcased The Akron Life & Legacy Of LeBron James.
The on-the-ground feature went into detail regarding the feelings felt by the people of his high school alma mater and current neighborhood of residence, while also featuring photos of LBJ's spectacular Bath Township (OH) mansion.
In addition, our website later compared the Akron native's Ohio home to his newer and very different bay front abode in South Florida.
During LeBron's inaugural season in Miami, iFolloSports correspondents witnessed his significant drop in national popularity firsthand, including original video displaying a bout of aloofness in Minneapolis and an outright heckling attack in Los Angeles.
This season, LeBron appeared to take himself a little less seriously, in what was believed to be an effort to re-solidify the sterling reputation he once owned, while playing in Cleveland.
A small example of this situation took place, per our original video, just after the lockout's conclusion.
On this chilly Minneapolis night, LeBron's previously cold approach to fans warmed up just a little bit, as the Heat entered Target Center for a game versus the Wolves.
Stayed tuned for more behind the scenes coverage of LeBron James' life, now as an NBA champion.
If history is any indication, it is bound to be just as interesting as the journey he has experienced over the last 700 plus days of scrutiny.
