“Second place got me this, this wasn’t expected at all” said James after winning ‘Best Championship Performance’ at Wednesday’s ESPYs after losing the NBA Championship. “I’ll take the second place award and I’ll take it to my house too.”
Granted James was great during the finals but all of the other (less marketable) nominees actually won in their sport. I know it seems crazy to say a Horse – named American Pharoah – deserved an award over the King, but the damn horse won the first Triple Crown in over 40 years and LeBron didn’t win the championship or the NBA Finals MVP award.
