MIAMI – Thursday night at the American Airlines Arena, Lebron James and the Heat broke the hearts of those who wanted to see this season end without a championship. As James stuck the MVP trophy into the air you could see the satisfaction on his face as he mouthed a heartfelt thank you to all those wishing him nothing but playoff failures after leaving the Cavaliers in such a controversial and publicized fashion.
James who average 30 points throughout the playoff hugged his Heat teammates and then looked directly into the camera.
Redemption was sweet.
“I dreamed about this opportunity and this moment for a long time, including last night, including today,” James said. “You know, my dream has become a reality now. What better way to celebrate than to take the trophies on tour. I’m calling it THE KISS MY ASS Tour, first stop is Cleveland.”
“Two years ago, when I made the announcement that I was coming here; people started shitting on me like I wasn’t the best player in the league. I was getting all kinds of criticism. I put this team together, obviously with all this talent why wouldn’t I say we are going to win multiple championships. When Jordan said that shit no one batted an eye but when I say stuff everyone all up in arms about the words. We had to go through what we had to through last year. We needed to. And as much as it hurt, we had to go through pain and suffering.’’
James who had taken a hiatus from Twitter at the start of the playoffs, resumed early Friday morning for the first time since April 27. He tweeted, “Fuck Disney world, it’s all about the Kiss My Ass tour. This is for all the dick sucking haters who wanted to see me fall,” with a link to a video in which James said:
“I’m at a loss of words right now. I want to shout-out (to) my haters. Look what ya’ll helped me do. I know I haven’t been with you all the last couple months. I think April 27th was the last time I sent out a Tweet. I want you all to know I just wanted to get as focused as possible on this championship run. As you can see, I am a champion. Without you guys, it wouldn’t have been possible. You guys stuck with me throughout the whole playoffs. You guys stuck with me through the last couple of years and thank you guys so much. You guys share this championship with me and this MVP trophy with me. Love you guys. The Kiss my Ass tour is for you guys. SO PUCKER UP”
