As featured at NBA on Thursday night, Miami Heat beat OKC Thunder in the 2012 NBA Finals Game 5, with LeBron James achieving a triple-double, 26 points, 13 assists, and 11 rebounds. Chris Bosh made 24 points, and Dwyane Wade had 20, while Mike Miller had 23 points including seven 3-pointers.

During the awarding ceremony, NBA Commissioner David Stern announced that LeBron James averaged 28.6 points, 10.2 rebounds and 7.4 assists during the five-game finals series, with the 2012 NBA Finals MVP trophy presented by Bill Russell, the former NBA star whom the said trophy was named after.

“It’s about damn time,” LeBron James, who was then wearing a 2011-12 NBA championship T-shirt and hat, said twice to ESPN‘s Stuart Scott, when he was asked about what was the first thing that ran through his mind right after the game, with the crowd being heard cheering for him.

“This means everything…It’s a dream come true.” The 27-year old MVP added, who also won the 2012 NBA MVP award last month after garnering a total of 1,074 points from votes, which he also won in 2009 and 2010. James is on his third appearance in the NBA Finals and this Miami Heat victory is his first NBA Championship title.
