LeBron Ready to Extract Revenge on Spurs
Over the years LeBron James has always spoken respectfully about the San Antonio Spurs and their accomplishments. But a day before seeing them again in the Finals, the Miami HEAT star revealed something that’s been bubbling below the surface for a long time. A desire for revenge.
James said Wednesday he’s long waited for the chance to get back at the Spurs for how they beat him in the 2007 Finals, handily sweeping James’ inexperienced Cleveland Cavaliers team.
“I have something in me that they took in ’07; beat us on our home floor, celebrated on our home floor,” James said. “I won’t forget that. You shouldn’t as a competitor. You should never forget that. It’s the same group of guys, for the most part. The same Big Three, and Coach [Gregg] Pop[ovich]. And I look forward to the challenge once again.”
