But even after winning his first ring in emphatic fashion, there are still plenty of reasons for James to be motivated for title number two.
LeBron carved out his place as the league's best player last year. Winning a second championship would further secure that position amongst his peers.
It would also go a long way towards cementing his legacy on the all-time list of NBA greats.
Besides that, on a more personal level, winning title number two would help validate James' decision to join the Miami Heat in the first place. The multiple championships won would do so for not only himself, but also his teammates as well as his family.
