UPPER DECK THROWBACK THURSDAY CREATE THE CAPTION PROMOTION: LeBron James
Posted On 16 Jul 2015 / 29 Comments
It isn't often that a season's second-place finisher outshines the year's champions. Even if they had the best performance, athletes are rarely awarded with awards unless they win the championship. That changed Wednesday evening at the 2015 ESPYs after LeBron James took home the award for "Best Championship Performance."
James was pitted against a star-studded lineup that actually won their individual championships in the respective category. That competition included San Francisco GiantsWorld Series MVP Madison Bumgarner, Triple Crown winner American Pharoah, and Women's College World Series Most Outstanding Player, Lauren Haeger from the University of Florida.
Despite the Cleveland Cavaliers losing to the Golden State Warriors in last month's NBA Finals, James' performance was masterful. So much so, he received votes for Finals MVP despite not winning the championship. James averaged 36 points, 13 rebounds and nine assists during the Finals.
Although on the losing end, his staggering numbers will go down as the first player in history to lead both teams in the Finals in points, rebounds and assists. That is the reason he didn't walk home empty-handed last night.
