Miami, FL (Sports Network) - For the second consecutive season, LeBron James led the Miami Heat to an NBA Championship and earned Finals MVP in doing so.

James was everything and more when his team needed it most. With the Heat staring elimination in the face in Game 6, he powered the Heat with 18 points down the stretch of the fourth quarter and overtime en route to his second triple-double of the Finals.

Miami trailed by double-digits entering the fourth quarter of that contest, but James refused to go down and led a furious comeback that will be remembered as one of the greatest games in NBA Finals history.

He then delivered the final blow with a 37-point, 12-rebound performance in a decisive Game 7, knocking down a 19-footer in the final minute to seal the outcome and put an exclamation point on what has been an incredible year.

Even the freak of nature that James is, the man has to be exhausted. Between leading the Heat to consecutive championships, he was the driving force over the summer in helping the United States capture a Gold Medal in the 2012 Olympics in London.

Oh, and after that he orchestrated an incredible 27-game win streak that sent the Heat to a league-best 66-16 record.

At just 28 years young, James is already a four-time MVP winner and has plenty of his prime left, still building on a legacy that has no limits.

A mix of Michael Jordan and Magic Johnson, James has the rare ability to play either's game whenever he feels necessary.

James is probably the most unselfish superstar the NBA has ever seen. He's a pass first player and always looks to get his teammates going before doing so himself, and there's a reason for that.

Because with the flick of a switch, James can become the scorer that no defender wants to guard. He can impose his will with his size, quickness and strength alone.

He's proved it in back-to-back years now and has all but erased the notion that he wilts under the pressure.

In fact, he's doing just the opposite. He's thriving under pressure and there isn't a man on the planet who can slow him down.
