LeBron James Is a Real Leader

“I live too much in the moment. I can’t worry about what goes on after this series is over with. Win, lose or draw, I live now and worry about the future once it’s upon me.”

“I won’t change my approach,” LeBron James said. “I hold guys accountable. I don’t let things slide. I hold guys accountable and I want guys to be great while they’re out on the floor and do what’s best for the team. If you do that, you put the team before yourself, then I can live with that. So my leadership approach is different from others and I live with it.

“I just want my teammates to be themselves, man. You know, I feel like I need to do more, too. It’s how I am. My teammates are everything. Obviously I wouldn’t be sitting up here with this, the NBA Finals thing behind me, without them. You know, and they’ve been there all year, and I still believe in them. The guys that are struggling, I believe they’re going to have a big game tomorrow. The guys that haven’t been in a rhythm, I feel like tomorrow’s going to be the best rhythm they’ve been in.

“Tomorrow might be the game where I need to be picked up like I was in Game 1 where I caught a cramp. I believe in them, and I ride with them no matter what.”
