LeBron: ‘This is not going to be my last time here’


MANILA, Philippines – Out of the black curtains that hung on the walls of the makeshift stage with his renowned brand and phrase plastered on it, LeBron James came out in style just like how he won his second straight NBA title last June.

James, the two-time NBA champion of the Miami Heat, gamely answered questions thrown at him by the host Boom Gonzales in a press conference for his “Witness History” tour Tuesday afternoon at the Makati Shangri-La Hotel in Makati City.

“So far so great, it’s a great place to be here,” said the four-time MVP James, who arrived here Monday night.

“This is very overwhelming. I can’t believe this is my first time here. Definitely, it’s not going to be my last,” added James, who will do a stopover at Nike Park’s flagship store at Bonifacio Global City in Taguig before heading to the Mall of Asia Arena for his much-awaited one-day event presented by Nike.

Fresh off his second straight championship and another Finals MVP to go along with his four regular season MVP awards and a couple of Olympic gold medals, James, the best basketball player today, is far from done.

“I got a lot more to prove, I got a lot more to accomplish.”

    There is still much to prove. Jordan has 6 Kobe has 5, Magic has 5. You have 2. And, as a fan, for me, 5 would be enough. Id like to see MJ besting everyone being a 90′s kid.

      Derek Fisher has 5. So by your judgment, he has proven a lot more than LeBron?

      And Bill Russell has 11. Does that mean he’s the greatest ever to have played the game?

    And this will also not be the last time that pathetic and jobless losers will camp out for days at the Nike Park for tickets, which they will then sell for thousands of pesos to even bigger losers and succkers.

    Compared to Kobe who is good for another year or two, this guy will dominate the BB scene for the next decade. Who knows how many rings will he be able to take home by the end of his career.
