For LeBron James to finally claim his long-sought NBA Finals title, he and the Miami Heat will have to shut down NBA scoring champion Kevin Durant and the Oklahoma City Thunder

Two star-studded teams begin the best-of-seven championship series at Oklahoma City today.

The Heat lost to Dallas in last year’s NBA Finals but James has worked to reach the NBA Finals for the third time in his career in his ninth NBA season, having also lost with Cleveland to San Antonio in 2007. “We look forward to the next challenge. Still one more step,” he said. — AFP
