For once, we actually agree with LeBron James.

The guy hasn't even come close to winning his first NBA championship yet and people are already giving him grief and saying that if he does win this year, there should be as asterisk placed next to it. Reason being: The season was shortened because of the NBA lockout and the NBA Playoffs have been affected by it. But, Bron-Bron says that a championship is a championship and that there shouldn't be an asterisk next to the 2012 NBA champion.

"I don't think that's right to say," he says. "I'm not going to get involved in it. Every team works hard no matter if it's a lockout year or not. There's not much of a difference between 82 games and 66 games…I don't discredit the effort San Antonio had when they won it in 1999 after the lockout. We all know Gregg Popovich is an unbelievable coach and Tim Duncan is an unbelievable player. It shouldn't matter. They won multiple [titles] after that, so are we going to say that first one wasn't good enough? I don't think that's true at all."

Us, either. So, if the Heat win, they win. Bottom line.
