“Not one, not two, not three, not four, not five, not six..”

It was exactly two, actually. Any self-respecting hoops fan would know precisely what these words are. The simple enumeration isn’t that of a child learning how to count, but instead straight from the mouth of Florida’s then-latest resident – LeBron James.

These were the words LeBron James uttered in reference to how many championships his new team, the Miami Heat, would win. I remember my own thoughts when this went down. It was a mixture of dueling emotions between denial and acceptance, “Oh man, I hope not.” versus “But he’s probably right.”
