The Miami Heat will meet the Los Angeles Lakers in the 2020 NBA Finals. That means LeBron James will face off against his former team for the NBA championship. This is going to be one of those "Jerome Bettis is from Detroit" storylines where people roll their eyes and get sick of it, but they shouldn't because this is incredible for both LeBron James and the Heat. It might even be unheard of.
ESPN immediately dove into the story by asking Eric Spoelstra about LeBron and then showed clips of James celebrating championships when he was a member of the Miami Heat.
If you take a moment to step back, that's pretty weird! Top players have left teams and competed for a championship with a new team a good number of times, but for them to find their old team waiting for them? It has to be unprecedented. And I don't want to hear about some guy who ended up switching leagues after a WWII deployment.
