In 1994, I heard Ruby Tomjanovich, former coach of the Houston Rockets say as his team won their first ever NBA championship, “Don’t ever underestimate the heart of a champion.” If you watched game # 3 last night between the Cleveland Cavaliers and Atlanta Hawks, you witnessed hearts of champions aimed at bringing home the bacon! Lead by their fearless leader, LeBron James, the Cavaliers want the championship so bad, they can “taste” it! Their heartfelt desire to bring the trophy to Cleveland shows! They are “playing their hearts out!” King James even changed the record books last night when he became the first player in a NBA Finals to post triple statistics as these: 37 points, 18 rebounds, 13 assists. With injured teammates, a limping LeBron said, “It’s mind over matter. We play for one another.” The Cavs’ hearts and minds jived together as they brought home the win. It was nothing but nets! Swish! It’s not wise to count your chicken before they’re hatch, but my broom is out for the sweep! Booyah!
