The Miami Heat had tough times with LeBron James. That’s why his latest comments are confusing ones.

The Rest Of His Tenure

What about the next season, when Miami went against the San Antonio Spurs and took the series seven games? Game 6 might go down as one of the best NBA Finals games of all time, plus with the greatest shot in NBA history by Ray Allen.

I do not want to take anything from James’s other championships but his two championships with Miami weren’t cakewalks. But for some reason, no one wants to talk about his Miami rings and not to mention the fact that James doesn’t either.

There a couple of reasons why I think James does not want to talk about his time in Miami. The Decision happened as he was going to Miami, the 2011 NBA Finals is one where he struggled, the National media not coddling him nor his team wasn’t a joy, and all while being under a microscope for four years in Miami couldn’t have been fun.

Maybe he wants to forget it. But he can’t, it’s why he’s him today.

Personally, my favorite is when he went back to Cleveland and didn’t win a game in Miami as a Cleveland Cavalier, plus James would even sit out games in Miami from time to time as well, which would always make me laugh.

In all seriousness, when the day comes, I hope James brings up his time in Miami. Miami fans feel a lot of connections to their star players and vice versa but with James, it’s always going to be weird because of the way he left Miami.

What about the press conference? The one where he wouldn’t even mention Miami’s name, calling them “the franchise I was with at the time”, which always rubbed fans the wrong way.

What about when both of his teammates, Wade and Bosh, were getting their jerseys retired and James “couldn’t show up” to support them? That made me feel a certain type of way.

James went back to Cleveland while he was a member of Miami to see former teammate, Zydrunas Ilgauskas, but couldn’t for his Championship teammates in Miami? Hopefully, the day comes when James will talk about his Miami days because Miami fans want to hear his stories.

We’re tired of the disrespect about the team that most helped him become everything that he is. That’s mostly all though.
