Critics devalue the 2020 championship for many reasons, including the absence of a live crowd, shortened regular season, and unprecedented circumstances.

Damian Lillard voiced his opinion about LeBron’s 4th Championship in the Bubble in 2020, “I feel like it would have been hard to win that coz people was fresh.” Lillard believes he was in his career’s best form when he was in the Bubble up until that season, and so were all the other players. “We have never seen a more fresh version of the opposition than we did at that time.” Lillard added. Dame validated the Bubble Ring with his comments.

ESPN analyst Zach Lowe backed Lillard’s comments, “Hell yes he is right.” According to Lowe, fans only discredit the 2020 championship because it was won by one of the Greatest players of this generation playing for the NBA’s most storied franchise, “What comes with that is an entire industrial complex of people who wanna tear your accomplishments down.” The veteran analyst also claimed if any other player had won the championship that year other than LeBron James, no one would have batted an eye on that title’s credibility.
