James on legacy talk: 'Kind of stupid'

The SportsXchange

Miami Heat star LeBron James begins his fifth NBA Finals thinking about a third championship. He'll leave it to everyone else to compute what another ring might mean to the LeBron Legacy.

"I play for my teammates, our team, the city of Miami, my friends, and family," James told reporters on Wednesday. "Win, lose, or draw, I'm satisfied with that. I don't get involved in what people say about me and my legacy. I think it's actually kind of stupid."

A repeat win for the Heat would give Miami three consecutive NBA titles, a feat last achieved by the 2000-2002 Los Angeles Lakers and Kobe Bryant.

Not since the Boston Celtics in the 1980s has a team gone to four straight Finals, as Miami is this postseason.

The bar is set by Michael Jordan, who went 6-0 in the NBA Finals with the Chicago Bulls before retiring.
