The 2012-2013 NBA Basketball season has been interesting. One of the more profound athletes in the game right now is LeBron James. A few years ago he was on the Cleveland Cavaliers with no team and no hope. With no reliable teammates, James needed to carry his team with any hopes of being successful. Even though the Cavaliers made it to finals, James’ could not get the hardware. Now with James’ contract almost over, a big decision was ahead of him. He could either stay in his home state of Ohio or be signed with a new team with new possibilities.
When it was time, James decided to take his talents to South Beach and play for the Miami Heat. This overall decision benefited LeBron and the Heat organization tremendously. With the duo of LeBron and Dwayne Wade at the top of the court and Chris Bosh down low, the Heat are seamlessly impossible to stop. With a team that James can count on, the Heat are on their way to another possible championship this year.
Last month, he became the first player in history to drop at least 30 points while holding a 60% field goal percentage in six consecutive games, thus establishing him as one of the most prestige players in history. Coming off from a championship season last year, he has had a lot of hype to live up to. Knowing his statistics, he has lived up to his name.
Having 35 triple-doubles in his career James earns a spot in the history books. As a dominance inside, a clutch shooter, and intricate passer he is at the top of his game; some might even say in his prime. This season James is averaging 26.8 points, 6.8 assists, and 9.8 rebounds a game.
He has an assassin’s mentality. Fearing no one, James is starving for victory and wants to be the best. With a little less of half a season to go, the Miami Heat are the leading the Eastern conference and are on the road to success.
