2013 Lebron James NBA Finals OddsSix years ago this month, Lebron James led the Cleveland Cavaliers in to the 2007 NBA Finals with one of the most impressive individual playoff performances of this past sportsbook reviews decade, only to be eliminated by the San Antonio Spurs with four-straight losses. Fast-forward to the 2013 NBA Finals, and Lebron is set to lead the Miami Heat in their third-straight NBA Finals appearance and another date with the Spurs. A lot has changed in the time in between, and this time around Lebron is ready to take his team on his back and lead Miami to a second-straight NBA Championship.

Lebron is a much different player now than he was then, as he has grown tremendously as the league’s biggest superstar over the past six years. The four-time MVP has become the most dominant player in the game, with a little touch of many of the greats that played the game before him. A physical specimen the likes of which the NBA has never seen before, Lebron is a massive 6’8’’, 250-pound monster that plays with the speed, vision, and quickness of a much smaller player but still takes care of business at both ends of the floor with his size and strength.

His post game has developed tremendously, and he is also a much better pure scorer from the field. Lebron has learned what it takes to be an elite basketball player, and with one championship ring under his belt already he can take aim at another without the pressure of never having one a championship weighing down on him.

 

Many of the NBA sports betting experts agree that Lebron has been a much different player since he won a title, as it has made him that much more confident and assertive. The numbers reinforce that sentiment as Lebron continues to take on more responsibility and diversify his overall game. Lebron’s points per game total is down form last season, but his assist numbers are up and he has done a better job of protecting the basketball. Lebron’s postseason performance will ultimately be measured by how he performs in the NBA Finals, and the stage is his to step up again.

The live betting numbers that the rest of the Heat have put up to this point in the playoffs haven’t been what most expected, as both Chris Bosh and Dwyane Wade have struggled behind Lebron’s lead. Miami has gotten some strong performances from role players like Udonis Haslem, Chris Anderson, and Ray Allen at different points in these playoffs, but they have lacked the overall consistency of a championship team. That will put even more pressure on Lebron to carry the load at both ends of the floor, and it will be interesting to see how he responds. Lebron is primed and ready to put the Heat on his back and carry them to a second-consecutive NBA championship, as six years later he is now ready for his rematch with the Spurs.
