NBA 2020: LA Lakers beat Miami Heat to win record 17th title

The Los Angeles Lakers defeated the Miami Heat, 106-93, in Game 6 of the NBA Finals to win the NBA championship on Sunday.

Lakers ended a decade-long wait for a 17th NBA title as they beat the Heat to seal a 4-2 series victory.

The Lakers are now tied with Boston Celtics for most NBA championships.

One of the star performers in the 2020 NBA Finals is LeBron James. He emerged as the most valuable player (MVP).

James posted a triple-double – scoring 28 points, 14 rebounds, and 10 assists – with both Anthony Davis and Rajon Rondo adding 19 points.

Lakers finally put away a daunting Miami Heat.

After the game, LeBron James expressed his joy and said he was happy to be a member of the Los Angeles Lakers.

“It means a lot to represent this franchise,” said James.

“I told [Lakers president] Jeanie [Buss] when I came here that I was going to put this franchise back in the position where it belongs.

“We just want our respect. Rob [Pelinka] wants his respect, coach [Frank] Vogel wants his respect, our organisation wants its respect, Lakers nation wants its respect.

“And I want my respect too.”

James also becomes the first player in NBA history to be named Finals MVP with three different teams (Lakers, Cavaliers, and Heat).

Now with four MVPs to his name, he trails only Michael Jordan, who won six.
