*Well, it’s a done deal. The Los Angeles Lakers, behind the spectacular play of LeBron James, Anthony Davis and a supporting cast including Rajon Rondo and others, got the job done on Sunday and won the 2020 NBA Championship against the Miami Heat.
The win was the Lakers’ 17th over all and their first since 2010. The win also marks the 4th title for James who’s two titles shy of tying Michael Jordan. Speaking of James, a few days ago, he said that he doesn’t think about his legacy, and that it will “be told the way it’s supposed to be told.”
Well, sportswriter/commentator Skip Bayless and Shannon Sharpe have a lot to say about LeBron winning a championship with Lakers ’cause that’s what they do. However, what’s got LeBron and Lakers fans upset is Bayless saying that LeBron James’ 4th ring is fraudulent and to get it, he got every break in the book.
Wait. What? Of course if you’re a Lakers or Lebron hater those words are like music to your ears.
Check out what Bayless and Sharpe have to say in the “Undisputed” video above.
If you’re wondering what Lebron James is thinking/saying about Bayless’ accusation, so far he’s keeping his thoughts to himself. But we think we know what he’s thinking. Just check out what he said after being presented the the Finals MVP trophy about wating his “damn respect.”
“It means a lot. It means a lot to represent this franchise,” he told ESPN after Game 6.
“I told Jeanie [Buss, Lakers owner] when I came here that I was going to put this franchise back in a position where it belongs. […] For me to be part of such a historical franchise is an unbelievable feeling, not only for myself, but for my team-mates, for the organization, for the coaches, for the trainers, everybody that’s here.
“We just want our respect. Rob [Pelinka, Lakers general manager] wants his respect, coach [Frank] Vogel wanted his respect, our organization want their respect, Laker Nation want their respect and I want my damn respect too.”
