The LeBron-DeShawn Stevenson saga is like a Bizarro version of King James' public image. In 2008, Stevenson started a spat when called LeBron "overrated." Now it's all water under the bridge:
Stevenson said their past bad blood is no longer an issue. "It probably is with him," he said. "I don't know if he forgot about, but it's nothing personal. At the end of the day, we're in the Finals. That's what we're worried about: winning a championship."
Will LeBron be redeemed in the eyes of the public three years from now? It will all come down to tonight. Not really.
