LeBron James took a break from social media for several months but after leading Cleveland Cavaliers to its first-ever NBA championship, the man who calls himself ‘the best player in the world’ took to Instagram on Monday, June 20, to address all those who doubted him and his team.
He shared a photo of himself holding the Larry O’Brien trophy and wrote: “They said u lost a step, wasn’t explosive as once was, the best days was in the real view, questioned your drive, your leadership, your commitment, you don’t have killer instinct, going back home is the worst mistake in your career, he got the coach fired, players traded, won’t work between him and Kyrie, Him and Kev won’t work, love your teammates too much, there’s no way he can deliver a championship in his hometown, etc etc etc…. But guess what THAT’S NONE OF MY BUSINESS”
James also added the hashtags “StriverForGreatness”, “ThisOneIsForTheLand” and “PutSomeRespeckOnMyName”.
James, who was also named as the NBA Finals Most Valuable Player (MVP), went to his knees and wept after the Cleveland Cavaliers defeated the Golden State Warriors.
He said they gave their very best to win the championship for the sake of their fans.
Yahoo News quoted him as saying: “Our fans, they ride or die. For us to be able to end this, end this drought, our fans deserve it. They deserve it. And it was for them.”
The Cleveland Cavaliers became the first team in NBA history to come back from a 3-1 Finals deficit.
