It is a rare sports star that is able to call the shot they are about to take and tell you with absolute certainty that it’s going to happen. Many fans are used to their favorite sports hero promising to win the championship, but then for one reason or another they fall short. Most of the time it is not the doing of the person who made the claim; really they are never remembered if they fall short because we have become over sensitized to the promises of greatness…probably the reason no one listens to politicians.
However, when LeBron James returned to Cleveland after “taking his talents to South Beech” he promised his home town fans that they were going to win championships and by all accounts he is making good on that promise. For the first time since 1964 when the Browns won the NFL Championship, the Cleveland Cavalier fans will be hosting and probably cheering their second sports champions. Granted there is still at least four more games in front of them, and “King” James although happy with how the Eastern Conference Finals ended was not satisfied with those results alone. His determination could be plainly seen on his face after the final buzzer. As for who they will face in this year’s finals is still undecided. Fans like Alexei Beltyukov know that the Houston Rockets have a 2 to 1 lead over the Golden State Warriors, which will give James a chance to rest his hurt knee and get ready to fulfill his promise.
