2020 NBA Finals | Lakers vs. Heat
NBA Twitter reacts to Lakers' 17th championship
From NBA.com Staff
The NBA community witnessed the Lakers’ dominant conclusion to the prolonged 2019-20 season, which saw the franchise claim its 17th championship. LeBron James walked off carrying his fourth Bill Russell Finals MVP trophy, fresh off his 28th career playoff triple-double. The Lakers as a whole brought a measure of healing in a year crippled by the loss of Kobe Bryant and his daughter Gianna.
Emotions ran rampant, from congratulations to the champs to thoughts of title attempts elsewhere. Here’s the best of them that were posted the night the Lakers were crowned:
