LeBron James is preparing for a fight against the San Antonio Spurs as he took to the ring before Thursday’s Game 1 of the NBA Finals.
James said Wednesday that he’s been waiting a long time to get some revenge on the Spurs, who swept his Cleveland Cavaliers in the 2007 Finals.
“I have something in me that they took in ’07; beat us on our home floor, celebrated on our home floor,” James said during his NBA Finals press conference. “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.”
