Twitter Goes Berserk as LeBron James Creates History by Taking Los Angeles Lakers to Another NBA Finals

LeBron James has done it once again. The King is back in the NBA Finals for the 10th time. Prior to joining the Lakers, James was always criticized for playing in the weak East. However, James is the same dominant force in his first playoff run in the West!

The Lakers headed to Game 5 with a chance to close out the series, and they didn’t falter at any point. LeBron James finished the game with a near 40 point triple-double and a humongous fourth quarter performance.

LBJ racked up 38 points, 16 boards, and 10 assists while clocking 40 minutes on the floor. With this dominant performance, he and AD have carried the Lakers back to their first finals appearance in a decade.

Moreover, the Nuggets were not easy opponents to defeat. They had already shattered Clippers fans’ hopes in the WCSF, even after being down 3-1. But this Lakers team is just a notch above the other teams this postseason.

Twitter is flooded with fans, analysts and former players’ reaction to LeBron James’ 10th NBA finals appearance.

LeBron James is a once in a generation talent, something he has proven at every step of his career. But can the Lakers win their championship #17 with James at the helm? That remains the question of the hour.

Can LeBron James finally end the championship drought in LA?

When King James announced he would join the Lakers last season, a wave of excitement filled the team’s fans. Ever since Kobe’s retirement, the purple and gold have been searching for a superstar. LBJ and AD are the dynamic duo that took the task of carrying the Lakers out of their decade-long slump.

The job is not done yet; the Lakers are just four wins away from an NBA championship. They are waiting for an opponent in the finals and as of now, it could be either Miami or Boston.

The ECF series could still go either way, but the Heat has a 3-2 lead over Boston. If they don’t choke in Game 6, the Lakers vs Heat final is almost confirmed.

But what do you think? Will the Lakers win a championship this year? Or this postseason run by James will go in vain?
