MIAMI LeBron James says he expects to be satisfied with whatever outcome awaits the Miami Heat on Thursday night in Game 7 of the NBA Finals.
The league's reigning MVP and four-time winner of the award had a 32-point, 10-rebound, 11-assist effort in Game 6, when the Heat found a way to overcome a five-point deficit in the final half-minute of regulation and eventually beat the San Antonio Spurs in overtime.
So it comes down to this: One game, winner takes the NBA title, and it's on Miami's home floor.
James says winning his first championship was the hardest thing he's ever done. And now, he's insisting that trying to defend that title was much more difficult.
James says he's "going to leave everything on the floor" and "whatever happens happens."
