MIAMI, FL - LeBron James fist-bumped with his teammates and coaches. He hugged others and watched the last three minutes from the bench, jumping up and down near the end with a smile that stretched ear-to-ear.
The poster boy for unrealized expectations finally has his first championship.
James scored 26 points and had a triple-double Thursday night and the Miami Heat rolled to a 121-106 win over the Oklahoma City Thunder in clinching Game 5 of the NBA Finals.
