LeBron James had to work hard to win his first NBA championship in 2012; before that, he suffered two painful losses against the San Antonio Spurs and the Dallas Mavericks in 2007 and 2011, respectively. During that time, Bron's haters used to call him 'LeChoke James' for his inability to win and how he played during the last minutes of games that were extremely important for his team.

Now things have changed and Bron has established as one of the best players in the history of the game, winning three titles, setting new records in the Finals, and having great performances on his way to the big series. Still, some people see LeBron as a choker, even when reality shows the King does it great in elimination games.

Now he's ready to conquer the bubble with the Lakers and his team is ready to help him reach that goal. The team is united and they have each other's backs. For instance, Danny Green came in LeBron's defense recently, sending a message to those who still believe James underperform in crunch time.

“He’s a clutch guy. He shows up when the lights are the brightest,” Green said, per Ryan Ward of ClutchPoints.

He's set to win it all this season. James has demonstrated that age doesn't matter to him, dominating the league at age 35, playing in his 17th campaign in the NBA. The Akron native is hopeful to take his team to the promised land and keep demonstrating he's not a choker, he's one of the best to ever do it. He has the best support both on and off the court.
