‘LAKER NATION WANTS THEIR RESPECT’—BEST REACTIONS FROM THE LAKERS 2020 NBA CHAMPIONSHIP WIN
Monday, Oct 12, 2020

LeBron James took his legacy to new levels as he and the Los Angeles Lakers snagged last night’s 2020 NBA Championship win for the first time since the late Kobe Bryant led the pack in 2010!

After LeBron missed his first playoff season as a Laker last year, winning last night’s championship and racking up his fourth Finals MVP was truly heartfelt considering the impact of the pandemic and the devastating loss of NBA legend, Kobe Bryant. LeBron gave a powerful speech post-win about putting the franchise back on top and getting the respect they deserve.

“I told Jeanie [Buss] when I came here that I was gonna put this franchise back in the position where it belongs. Her late, great father did it for so many years and she just took it on after that. For me to be a part of such a historical franchise, it’s an unbelievable feeling not only for myself, but for my teammates, for the organization, for the coaches, for the trainers, for everybody that’s here. We just want our respect. Rob [Pelinka] wants his respect. Coach [Frank] Vogel wants his respect. Our organization wants their respect. Laker Nation wants their respect. And I want my damn respect, too.”

LeBron averaged 30 points per game leading up to the Laker’s 17th title win, tying with Boston Celtics’ record. And to put some additional respect on his name, he finished the night strong with a triple-double, 28 points, 14 rebounds and 10 assists.

Fans and celebrities alike took to Twitter to congratulate the Lakers on their huge win.
