One day before the start of a high-stakes NBA Finals — which, by the end of it, will either break a 52-year title-less streak for the city of Cleveland or drop LeBron James’ personal record to just 2-5 in the championship round — the Cavaliers star made it sound like he was already playing with house money.
“I don’t really get involved into the whole pressure thing,” James said Wednesday during his press conference on the Finals official media day. “I think I’ve exceeded expectations in my life as a professional. I’m a statistic that was supposed to go the other way — growing up in the inner city, having a single-parent household. It was just me and my mother. So everything I’ve done has been a success.”
