It’s all sparkles in Los Angeles as the Lakers have clinched their 17th franchise championship and have equaled the Boston Celtics record in the process. LeBron James bagged his fourth title in the league along with the Finals MVP trophy. In light of this massive win, Anthony Davis became ’emotional’ after making it to the top for the first time in his career.
It was a phenomenal night for the Lakers as they defeated Miami Heat 4-2 in the 2020 Finals series. Game 6 saw a highly dominant show from LeBron and Co. as they made it to a terrific 106-93 victory.
This marked a massive day for the Lakers’ star duo, LeBron James and Anthony Davis. The struggle to emerge as champions inside the Orlando Bubble definitely set this season apart from others. Bron-Davis made history with their dream Finals run, tremendous records, and other feats lined up at their feet.
With 25 seconds left to the buzzer, reality hit Davis hard. He was about to win the title for the first time after all these years in the league. “It was an unbelievable feeling,” the Brow admitted.
Davis left the court to get away from the cameras, and LeBron followed him and whispered something in his ear. AD said, “I was emotional… When I came out of the game, I just started feeling it. About 25 seconds left, that feeling just turns to reality, and I was 25 seconds from becoming a champion… I just got very emotional… He (LeBron) was bothering me, was telling me, ‘Ohh…You soft, you crybaby.'”
The winning moment must have been incredibly emotional for Davis and the entire Lakers’ team. They ruled and conquered the league in the same year that the NBA world lost Lakers’ legend, Kobe Bryant.
