In one of the more unique seasons in NBA history, the Los Angeles Lakers won the NBA Finals, giving the franchise 17 total championships, which ties them with the Boston Celtics for the most in NBA history. The Finals' win was also LeBron James' fourth of his career, with his last coming in 2016 as a member of the Cleveland Cavaliers.
During the weirdly quiet celebration following the game, LeBron had some hilarious words for the Larry O'Brien Trophy.
LeBron was basically scolding the trophy, talking about how it cheated on him for the last four years, saying "what is wrong with you?" JaVale McGee and Kyle Kuzma were just looking happy to be there, which definitely seems to be on-brand.
This was an important NBA Finals win for LeBron. Not only had it been many years since he had won, which he clearly vocalized, but a Finals loss would have dropped his record to 3-7 all-time in the NBA Finals. However, he is now 4-6 in the NBA Finals, and he has won Finals MVP with three different franchises, which is a feat nobody else has accomplished.
LeBron tells the trophy it's "time to get your ass home," and I'm sure everyone involved is feeling the same way. After being separated from friends and family down in the bubble, at least the Lakers will be able to say it was all worth it.
