Lebron James has led the Los Angeles Lakers to the 2019/20 NBA Championship.
The Lakers dominated game 6 from start to finish to defeat the Miami Heat 4-2 in the series and claim their 17th title.
They were led by finals MVP Lebron James who claimed his fourth NBA title at his third franchise.
James, Anthony Davis, and the frantic Lakers defence shut the door on a Miami team that relied heavily on Jimmy Butler at the offensive end of the floor.
Miami couldn’t get any flow offensively and they were not at their usual standard at the defensive end either.
James posted a 28th playoff triple-double with 28 points, 14 rebounds, and 10 assists, while Davis was a handy contributor with 19 points and 15 rebounds in a game that was already over at half-time.
A 64-36 advantage at the main break was created as the Lakers blew up the second quarter.
Kentavious Caldwell-Pope had another standout performance as he finished with 17 points, while Rajon Rondo popped up for a crucial 13 points in the first-half, before finishing with 19 off the bench.
Miami, who trailed by as many as 36 points, closed to within 13 points, but were never in the contest.
Bam Adebayo top scored for the Heat with 25 points and added 10 rebounds, while Butler was held to just 10 points, along with seven boards and eight assists.
Goran Dragic courageously checked into the series for the first time since tearing his plantar fascia (left foot) in Game 1, but was unable to make a real impact.
The Heat far exceeded expectations to just reach the NBA Finals, but were unable to overcome injuries and a 2-0 deficit to start the series.
“It means a lot to represent this franchise,” James said as he accepted his Finals MVP award.
“I told Jeanie [Buss] when I came here that I was going to put this franchise back in the position that it belongs.
“Her late, great father did it for so many years, and he just took it on after that.
“For me to be a part of such a historic franchise, it’s an unbelievable feeling; not only for myself, but for my teammates, for the organisation, for the coaches, for the trainers, everybody that’s here.
“We just want our respect. Rob [Pelinka] wants his respect. Coach [Frank] Vogel wants his respect, our organisation wants their respect, Laker Nation wants their respect … and I want my damn respect, too.”
