MIAMI— Post-game, NBA Playoff MVP LeBron James said, „Last year sitting here with my first championship, I said this was the toughest thing I ever did. This may have been tougher.” James was presented the MVP Bill Russell trophy from Russell in front of the celebrating crowd. „I can’t worry about what everyone says about me.
