#5 LeBron's Promise

LeBron promised to bring home a championship and boy, has he done that in emphatic fashion.

Before even playing a single game of his career, he was titled by the media as 'The Chosen One'. He was the first pick in the 2003 NBA draft and wore the jersey with the same number of his idol and the legend, Michael Jordan. Fans started to predict that he would be responsible for ending the 50-year drought of championships in Cleveland.

After going through some ups and downs, The King finally ended up winning a championship for Cleveland by defeating the 73-9 Golden State Warriors in 2016. To add to the insult, James defeated the favorites after the Warriors had a commanding 3-1 lead in the first 4 Finals games, giving the fans a win and a ring to remember for a lifetime (no team has never lost in the history of NBA after being up 3-1 in the NBA Finals).

The fans definitely would be disappointed if LeBron decides to leave, but there should be no hard feeling whatsoever.
