When the Miami Heat faced the Boston Celtics in Game 6 of the 2012 Eastern Conference Finals, that was one occasion. On the brink of elimination just a season after the worst playoff series of his basketball career, James looked as possessed as he did determined. When he finished the contest with 45 points and 15 rebounds as the Heat forced a Game 7 and eventually went on to win his first championship, the moment that the cameras caught him staring intently and unblinkingly went down in NBA history


Former NBA guard took to the All The Smoke podcast with Stephen Jackson and Matt Barnes to discuss what he believes the best version of James is. Fitting for a man that watched LeBron lead the first 3-1 comeback in NBA Finals history when LeBron, Kyrie Irving and the Cavs took Stephen Curry and the Golden State Warriors in 2016.
