What Other Pro Athletes Pursuing 1st Ring Can Learn from LeBron James

LeBron James and the Miami Heat are currently on the verge of winning the 2012 NBA Championship, which would, of course, give LeBron James his first ring.

Now, there is no other athlete in the history of sports who has gone through this much scrutiny in pursuit of their first ring, and it's insane to think that it's all going to end if and when the Heat do finish off the Thunder. Scrutiny will continue as LeBron is continually compared to Kobe Bryant, Michael Jordan and the other greats in NBA history.

Even though LeBron isn't going to win over the entire base of fans with his first ring, it's going to be a start.

One thing's for sure after watching LeBron for the past decade, he's followed a path to stardom that has been both unorthodox and at times troubling; but here he is, one win away from getting that elusive ring.

With the steps that LeBron has taken since he came into the league, he's given other athletes chasing their first championship something to learn from, both in terms of his massive missteps and his colossal victories.
