LeBron James is about to make his third appearance in the NBA finals when the Miami Heat takes on the Oklahoma City Thunder in game 1 of the 2012 NBA finals on Tuesday June 12, 2012 at 9pm ET.
He previously appeared in the 2007 NBA finals, when the San Antonio Spurs swept the Cleveland Cavaliers, 4-0. His second appearance was in 2011, this time with his new team, the Miami Heat; however, the Dallas Mavericks would win that series 4-2.
James is still hoping for his first NBA Championship ring, but the Thunder is favored to win as they have just been powering through the playoffs.
James’ accomplishments include being NBA Rookie of the Year (2004), a 3 time NBA MVP (2009, 2010, 2012), and an 8 time NBA All Star (2005-2012).
