Writing is my passion. I have an undying thirst and quest in the field of writing.Some eat, smoke, drink or use drugs when stress, I write.

To start with, I wasn't a fan of any sport but the very first time I witness LeBron James play basketball he totally won me over as a fan. I was so taken with him that I search him on YouTube, and he was even more amazing in the video I viewed. I went back to the beginning of his career during his final year at St Vincent-St Mary High School. I remember thinking this guy is sensational, and I can understand why he is called “The Chosen One” and the greatest NBA player ever.

After viewing videos of his interviews and games I though he is, the same LeBron as of his beginning career at St Vincent-St Mary High School he just develops and matures from a boy to a man but not all that different in his skills. When I read an article that shared his brain was his greatest weapon during the competition I agreed and though, he can still rule the game to do whatever he please and their not no one like him. In short, It’s time to call LeBron James what he is: the NBA's greatest ever player.

Love him or hate him, "King James" shows the qualities of a great leader. No guy on the basketball court is a threat to “King James” as no one has ever closed an NBA final like Him. While some basketball players are overrated in the sport, "King James" has proven he is the real deal, and he is capable of the unknown the greatest comeback in sports history to keeping a promise to his fan. For that reason, it is time to call LeBron James what he is: "the King" and the NBA's greatest player ever.

"King James" vows to bring a championship to his hometown Cleveland, and he did just that. The city of Cleveland was on a 52-year sports jinx, but thanks to “King James” the curse is over.

Cleveland fans can finally enjoy in one of the nation’s gloomiest sports cities by celebrating the best sports moment. James has three championships with two teams against three current or former MVP from three teams; Tim Duncan, Stephan Curry, and Kevin Durant. Moreover, James apparently has proven whatsoever he puts his mind to, he can do.

Fans hated when James left Cleveland for Miami in 2010; they even burned his jersey. James returns to Cleveland 2014-2015 season to bring home an NBA championship. However, fail in game 6 to the warrior 105 to 97, losing 4-2. James was disappointed and blamed himself. 2015-2016 NBA Final - things did not look good for Cleveland as they were down 3-1. It was tough, but Cleveland became the first team in the NBA history to come back successfully from a 3-1 deficit to win the championship 4-3.

More than 10,000 screaming fans took great pleasure in gathering at the IX Center waiting for their hero to emerge from a plane, Monday afternoon to bring home the Larry O’Brien Trophy.

NBA Championship 2016

Basketball is one of the world's fastest and most considered favorite sports. The National Basketball Association (NBA) is also one of the most well-liked sports associations in the USA and believed to provide the highest level of talented basketball players in the world. NBA players are also the world's lead-paid sportsmen.

The final of the NBA 2016 championship series was played on Sunday, June 19. It was the conclusion of the 2015–16 NBA season. In the final match Eastern Conference champion, Cleveland Cavaliers beat the Western Conference Champion Golden State Warriors by 4–3. The final game of 2015 NBA championship was also played between these teams, which was won by Golden State Warriors

In the NBA finals history, it was the 14th rematch, and it was the second back to back straight rematch as the San Antonio Spurs and Miami Heat played each other in 2013 and 2014.

Golden State due to home-court advantage, jumped to a 2–0 lead in the series. Cleveland made a good comeback, winning the game 3. However, Warriors did not allow the Cavaliers continue to win and won the game 4 to take a lead of 3-1.

However, the Cavaliers won the next three consecutive games shocking the Warriors and became the first team in Finals history that successfully overcomes the deficit of 3-1. This win was the first major sports championship for the Cavaliers won since 1964. As a result, it is time to call LeBron James what he is: "the King" and the NBA's greatest player ever

Why King James Is the best NBA player Ever

There is an argument to be made for why LeBron James is “the King” and the greatest NBA player ever. Whether you are a LeBron 'fan,' or not, he has an unparalleled ability to conduct his team in a way like no other leader. Some people will say, King, James process the same skills of several players like Michael Jordan or Oscar Robertson except I decline to agree. James is in the league of his own with the type of leadership abilities that will say 'Follow me, and I'll take you there' with actions, more than words.

Another, though, winning the NBA 2015-16 championship was King James’ greatest achievement. Think about it Cavaliers were down 3-1, and Cleveland was outmatched. J.R. Smith was out of the game and Kevin Love struggled, often James found himself flanked by Iman Shumpert and Richard Jefferson, trying to hold the team together, yet he manages to turn back the greatest shooting backcourt in NBA history. I’m sure many wondered HOW, exactly, did a team featuring the greatest player in basketball history that were down 3-1 bring home its first championship as it seems all odds were against them? The answer, King James pushed the team through it, and it's time to call Lebron James what he is: "the King" and the NBA's greatest player.

The many exceptional abilities of King James stand apart from many other great basketball players. Some may say it is his excellent strength to dominance — but it is not just his power of authority, it his selfless leadership and his ultimate weapon which is his brain. King James' brains help him remember what the opponent ran before in a game, and he will be ready for it. James can accurately play all five traditional positions. A great leader can shine in the spotlight, and not just stand under it. James knows how to draw the lights and shine, but he also knows how to deflect that glow to those around him. For that reason, it is time to call LeBron James what he is: "the King" and the NBA's greatest player ever.

Numerous great players in the NBA were favorites to the fan like Wilt Chamberlain, who played in the 60s and 70s to set almost every scoring record imaginable. He was a big guy who knew how to use his height and size, but he was not just a big guy in the league; he was also a world-class athlete that nobody could do anything to stop or match the things he was able to do athletically. However, even with all his great abilities and I will not take anything from him, James still stands apart from him for the reason he evolved into a league of his very own, and he fits into his current era entirely and to think of it, maybe that is what makes him so unique.In view of that, it is time to call LeBron James what he is: "the King" and the NBA's greatest player ever.

No one can deny that Coach Lue has brought this team together in a way like no other could have, they set history and shattered records. The people of Cleveland could not be happier for “King James”, the promise keeper. Cleveland’s three best shooters — Irving, Smith, and Love — help King James keep his promise. Although, it has been a long time coming to the NBA championship ended June 19, 2016, with three more words bellowed from King James, “Oh my God!”

With “the King and Ky” leading the way and only 1:45 left, Andre Iguodala appeared to have a clear lane for an excellent lay-up shot that would have placed the Warriors up two points on Cleveland. James could not allow that he came out of nowhere, soaring up high to block his shot at his final peak. Winning the championship, the Cleveland Cavaliers gained their revenge against the Golden State Warriors to became the first team in NBA history to win from a 3-1 trail.

What a great come back, Irving played a major role finishing with 27 points and 11 assists. The MVP King James, finish with 27 points, two steals and three blocks (11 in the fourth), 11 rebounds, 11 assists, he put his final stamp on the series by blocking a basket that would have put the warrior up two points just before Irving’s three-pointers fell through. Cleveland won a championship, and they deserve credit for winning against a team that was placed 1st in the NBA Pacific Division ranging. This win elevates James standing among basketball's best players. In other words, It’s time to call LeBron James what he is: "the King" and the NBA's greatest player ever!
