Lakers Got Back to the Throne after 10 Long Years

October 12, 2020, is among the many dates to be remembered for the basketball team Los Angeles Lakers as they won this season’s NBA Championship. Their rival, Miami Heat, won two games with a spectacular show at play 5. But it wasn’t enough. Led by Lebron James, the Lakers put down the Heat’s fire, winning the game at 106-93. James made triple-double again, scoring 28 points, 14 rebounds, and ten assists. This is the 17th time the basketball franchise won a championship, earning them par with the Boston Celtic for the most professional basketball championship titles by an NBA team.

 With everything that happened this season, from the death of their teammate Kobe Bryant and daughter Gianna, up to the suspension of games in the season because of the coronavirus, it was indeed the most challenging season win to James.

 A Tribute to Kobe

It was all for Kobe ever since the tragedy. The Lakers have been dedicating all their games to Kobe Bryant as a tribute to the Laker’s superstar. Early this year, Kobe died in a tragic helicopter crash together with his daughter Gianna and seven other people who were with him. Star player Anthony Davis thought of Bryant as his big brother and is proud of this victory, saying that the team didn’t let Kobe down.

 Even before the finals, Lebron was all in it for Kobe and the legacy he brought to the team. Believing that they have similarities regarding their perception of hard work and winning, Lebron saw Kobe’s mindset as a motivation for him to keep going. Not only Kobe but Kobe’s family as well, the Bryant’s is always in their minds whenever they play. The team hopes that Vanessa, Kobe’s wife, and their children are proud of this accomplishment.

 Miami’s Flame Goes Out

Exciting the basketball fans is the Miami Heat when they have managed to stay in the finals after winning games 3 and 5. The team deflected early elimination when Jimmy Butler outperformed himself in round 3 with other star players Goran Dragic and Bam Adebayo. Game 5 was a highlight for Jimmy Butler as his performance erupted with 35 points, 12 rebounds, and 11 assists. That performance saved the Heat from being out of the season and forcing the Lakers to play 6.

 But even with Butler’s phenomenal game, and finally, Goran Dragic, listed as active for the game, it wasn’t just enough to keep the fire burning.
