LeBron the most searched player, Heat the top trending team
The Heat were the top trending NBA team on Google this year, and no player was searched more than LeBron James.
Champions of the NBA, and champions of Google.
Google has released its search and trend data from 2013, and the Heat finished atop the list. They were the top trending NBA team of 2013, while LeBron James was the most searched player.
In something of a surprise though, the New Orleans Pelicans finished second in trending teams, with the Golden State Warriors third. My guess with the Pelicans is that with their name change, there was a lot of searchin' going on.
No surprise about the Heat, though. A second straight championship and a team that features the best player in the world? I just Googled LeBron right now and I don't even know why. A reflex at this point.
