Standing in his way are the Spurs, who swept the James' led Cavaliers in the 2007 NBA Finals. James is taking the sting of that loss into these Finals that start tonight.
"I have something in me that they took in '07, beat us on our home floor," James said. "I won't forget that. You shouldn't as a competitor. You should never forget that."
The main faces remain for the Spurs from 2007 -- Gregg Popovich, Tim Duncan, Tony Parker and Manu Ginobili. But James has a different cast with the Heat and likes his chances much better this time.
"This is our third year advancing to the Finals," James said. "We understand the opportunity we have. And then I'm a much better player. I'm 20, 40, 50 times better than I was in the '07 Finals."
James said the Spurs dared him to shoot jumpers in '07. If they do it again, the reigning two-time MVP is confident he will knock them down.
"I'm a better player," he said. "And you can't dare me to do anything I don't want to do in 2013."
James might be more driven than last year -- winning back-to-back titles puts you in a very elite class. He's on a mission but so are the Spurs. It should be a fun series.Spurs vs Heat Live Stream
