LeBron James Almost Lost His Finals MVP Trophy
After winning a NBA championship things go crazy in a blink of a second and things get hectic so it’s no surprise things can can come up missing. That’s exactly what happened to newly crowned NBA champ LeBron James.
He was sure once he won he would be sobbing like Michael Jordan but responded more like Magic Johnson hopping up and down on the sideline ready to spray champagne and unleashed a smile that no one but family and friends have glimpsed since the whole Decision fiasco.
But after James retreated to the locker room, where teammates bathed him in a Budweiser, Dom Perignon, he caught a scare. He couldn’t find his Finals MVP trophy.
“Where’s my trophy?” James hollered, rummaging through his locker. “I left it right here!” He rushed through the tunnel back to the court, where he had to give an interview, but the moment it ended he asked, “Have you seen my trophy? Who took my trophy?” On the way to the press conference, where the MVP trophy was waiting all along, he relaxed a bit. “It’s just an individual award, anyway,” he says. “It’s not the one that matters.”
