The Lakers, behind superstars LeBron James and Anthony Davis, defeated the Heat in six games. LeBron won his fourth Finals MVP trophy, while Davis captured his first title in the NBA.
JaVale McGee didn’t play in the Finals after starting the majority of the season. However, he never complained and is now a three-time champion after his Lakers journey. The big man won his first two rings with the Golden State Warriors.
The Lakers are now tied with the Boston Celtics (17) for the most titles in NBA history. James signed with Los Angeles in the summer of 2018, eager to bring the franchise back to prominence. With the help of Davis, The King was able to accomplish his goal in just his second year with the club.
Whenever the 2020-21 season starts, the Lakers will be favored to win the championship again by the oddsmakers. However, the team has to be mindful that the Warriors, Los Angeles Clippers and Brooklyn Nets will be hunting them.
The Warriors will return to the title picture as a challenger to the Lakers; stars Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson will be back in the lineup. Meanwhile, the Clippers should be motivated to redeem themselves after blowing a 3-1 series lead to the Denver Nuggets in the second round of the playoffs and the Nets will have Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving leading the way on offense.
