LeBron James, sports world react to Dodgers winning 2020 World Series

Lakers, LeBron James, Dodgers

Just a few weeks after getting his fourth NBA title, LeBron James is celebrating another championship after the Los Angeles Dodgers won the MLB World Series over the Tampa Bay Rays.

The Dodgers escaped the resilient Rays in Game 6, 3-1, behind Mookie Betts, who scored the last two runs (including a massive home run in the 8th inning to finally end an agonizing 32-year drought).

LeBron, who has been closely following the series, was ecstatic as another squad from the City of Angels took home a trophy. He immediately congratulated the Dodgers on Instagram.

Even prior to the victory, LeBron was already all pumped on Twitter, saluting Betts for another legendary performance.

But LeBron James isn’t alone in celebrating the Dodgers’ seventh title. Lakers legend Magic Johnson, who’s also known as a diehard Dodgers fan, simply posted a GIF of Clayton Kershaw.

Another recent champion and LeBron teammate Kyle Kuzma, meanwhile, remarked how the City of Champions can’t hold victory parades.

Legendary Dodgers announcer Vin Scully, on the other hand, reminded everyone to celebrate properly–perhaps alluding to the riots that happened after the Lakers won the NBA crown.

Some controversy happened in the 6th inning of Game 6 when Rays manager Kevin Cash took out pitcher Blake Snell after giving up just one hit. Snell was having one of his best games all season long as he struck out nine Dodgers hitters.

As expected, it didn’t sit well with others, including ESPN anchor Stephen A. Smith.
