On October 11, the Los Angeles Lakers celebrated their victory as the 2020 NBA champions. The team defeated the Miami Heat 106–93 in game 6 of the NBA Finals. This is the 17th championship win for the Lakers, tying them with the Boston Celtics for the most in NBA history. LeBron James (pictured center) earned his fourth championship ring. He also claimed the NBA Finals Most Valuable Player award, making him the first player to have received the honor with three different teams. In past years, James led the Miami Heat and Cleveland Cavaliers to championships. That didn’t make this win with the Lakers any less sweet. “For me to be a part of such a historical franchise is an unbelievable feeling,” he said after the game.
