LeBron James Feeling No Pressure Going Into Finals

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.”

LeBron James tested his injured left ankle during a portion of practice Sunday, but it’s still not known if he’ll play in Cleveland’s season opener.

James has been slowed since spraining his ankle in practice on Sept. 27. The three-time NBA champion sat out the Cavaliers’ first three exhibition games before making his debut last week against Chicago. He played 30 minutes but may have aggravated his ankle while making a spin move in the loss.
