King James is still without a ring, as the Dallas Mavericks won the 2011 NBA Championship.
Lebron James, one of the newest transfers to the Miami Heat, missed out on a championship ring this time around. Heat fans were in awe as they watched the Dallas Mavericks win the NBA Finals at the American Airlines Arena, the Heat’s home turf.
The Mavericks finished the series 4-2, which led to the franchise’s first NBA championship win. After 30 years in the league collectively, teammates Dirk Nowitzki (the Finals’ MVP) and Jason Kidd have finally won championship rings.
Heat small forward LeBron James is probably hoping it won’t take him that long to clutch that elusive ring. Fans of his former team, the Cleveland Cavaliers, rooted for the Mavs due to LeBron’s exit last year. Their prayers were answered when the Mavs beat the Heat 105-95 on Sunday.
Mo Williams, who once played alongside LeBron for the Cavs, spoke for many Cavs fans when he tweeted, “Dallas just healed my HEART.”
Meanwhile, LeBron showed still showed no remorse during a post-game interview. As we reported, he said, “At the end of the day, all the people that were rooting on me to fail … have to wake up tomorrow and have the same life that they had before they woke up today.”
Many are still in shock that the experimental powerhouse team of the season, made up of LeBron, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh, lost the series. Others argue that a cohesive team, like the Mavericks, is stronger than a few superstars.
