He’s been known as the best player in the NBA since around 2008. But with the Heat, he silenced the critics who said he couldn’t win rings. Two NBA titles and four finals appearances in four seasons will do that for a man’s reputation. Indeed, James, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh ran roughshod over the league in four years.
