LeBron James shouts out Akron, his haters in Finals MVP speech

USA TODAY Sports

After winning his second straight NBA Finals MVP, LeBron James had a message for his critics and much more.

LeBron James just won his second straight NBA Finals MVP after a grueling seven-game series victory for the Miami Heat over the San Antonio Spurs. When he won his first, he was just relieved to get a monkey off his back. Now that he's won his second, it's as good a time as ever for him to go on the offensive.

"For me, I can't worry about what everybody says about me. I'm LeBron James, from Akron, Ohio. From the inner city. I'm not even supposed to be here," the two-time Finals MVP bellowed, affirming his place among the best MVP speeches of all time. "That's enough."

"Every night I walk into the locker room, I see a No. 6 with James on the back. I'm blessed. So what everybody say about me off the court don't matter. I ain't got no worries."

And heck, LeBron's entitled. No player has ever faced this much scrutiny, and for the second straight year, he's overcome it. When you do that, you can do whatever you damn well please, even if I'm not sure I totally buy that he doesn't care about what the critics say.
