Irony- not even the Lakers can’t keep Dwight Howard from winning a championship in Orlando

And there is balance in the universe again.

:meditate: :meditate: :meditate: :meditate: :meditate: :meditate: :meditate: :meditate: :meditate: :meditate: :meditate:

This one’s for the Black Mamba and his daughter.

I complained about LBJ’s no defense 2018-19 season, called him LeGroin, I’ve complained about his capitulation threes, and so on last year. LeBron has been a super beast all season. MVP well earned. Kudos for playing both ends at 36! Unreal.

AD is the next Laker great big man. The defense he played at the five last night must be among the best defensive big man performances ever seen ... I’ll be pumped to see him back shooting jumpers at the four spot all regular season long, knowing that when it really matters in the playoffs, we can plug Bill Russell (but with stellar offense) in at the five to stop the bleeding.

And Caruso, I did say before the season that he‘d be our starting PG before the season is over, and I finally got to be right, lol. What can I say, Miles was right, Caruso is Laker basketball. Alex is a total badass.

KCP, I’m still burping crow. Thank you, for showing brass balls when nobody else did!

FRANK THE TANK!!! Wow.

Keep this group together, Rob! Don’t break it.

NBA championships since 1977 (merger)
Lakers 11 — Bulls 6 — Spurs 5 — Celtics 4

11 of 44 is 25%. Greatest franchise of all time.

:rockon: :rockon: :rockon:

2020-2021
PG: Caruso, Rondo, Bradley
SG: James, Green or KCP, THT
SF: Kuzma, FA, Caroline
PF: Davis, Morris, Cacok
C: Howard, Kostas, FA

Go huge: PG James | SG Kuz | SF Davis | PF Kostas | C Howard

What a dominant postseason run, I've never seen such a great sustained defense!

Milesfides, come on bro, this is also for you, time to appreciate the GOAT who have made us all happy.
Arguably the greatest franchise ever

As a die hard Lakers' fan I can only imagine how the hater's are feeling out there.
Boston fans esp Simmons, Clippers fans and their personnel esp Beverley, PG etc.
Fans outside of LA esp arch enemies who had rings like the Spurs, GSW etc
I know the feeling bec I hated seeing other teams win it all esp the time the Spurs won it, Lebron with Miami and Cleveland, GSW esp after KD joined them, Raptors, not that much.
I doubted the abilities of Rob, Vogel and esp KCP. They stepped up big time, althought I still think Frank can still improve on his offensive sets....
congrats to the team, to you fellow fans.

Congrats on the championship, well deserved.

For years I have been preaching that Lebron James should win the MVP every year (with the exception of last year).

He is truly the Most Valuable Player. By this I mean he elevates the players around him more than any other player in the league. He's also a pretty good player in his own right. (by this I mean GOAT)
Just look at Cleveland the year after he left.

Any chance Anthony Davis signs with Toronto?

The refs just wanted to express to him that they were haters of great accomplishment and attitude of celebration.
That was what that tech was all about.
