    • It wasn't easy for the Lakers to win a championship, what people don't understand that the Lakers had to play the same teams as everyone else and when the league was suspenison LeBron James stayed ready by keeping inshape they were the most improved team didn't win award for that, LeBron James deserve to get MVP of the season and didn't get that, but now that's not going to matter now, cause they are about to get the championship ring the Lakers have been through a lot this season and they deserve this season.

I’m like that not what y’all was saying before the series started and after the game 1 they lost. Lakers were counted out and soon as they lose one game oh the blazers got it oh the rockets got it soon as they get man handle it was easy no these media folks need to give credit

  • One quick note: if the clippers couldn’t beat the nuggets but the lakers did what does that say about a lakers clippers matchup? The argument I’ve seen is they had months to prepare when so did everyone else. The lakers weren’t even the best to start off with. They started off the bubble with terrible performances and bounced back. Not to mention being away from your family for 3 months being confined to a hotel room with not much outside contact. It’s not easy mentally.

The Clippers will eliminate- nvm 6. It's because AD carried him. 5. **see his stats for FMVP** Bruh it's because of the bubble this series. It's not the same anymore. Thats why he made it and it's cakewalk. It shouldnt be counted

  • On the other hand, picture this: Lakers facing a better prepared clippers team (i blame doc rivers for that not happening but anyway) in the conference finals then in the finals facing a full powered milwaukee bucks with the MVP and DPOY Giannis. Now that would be a much more interesting run to me, but it didn't hapen bc these teams flat out choked. And of course it isn't LeBron's fault but i do think it made the path somewhat (if not considerably) easier for them. We still gotta appreciate him for the great athlete he is anyway, i'll stay tuned for the next season.

    richardrichard8 kun oldin
  • Even if they had beaten the Clippers they would of been like "PG13 3 point shooting hurt the Clippers" or "The Clippers weren't playing in full strength cause they had to play game 7". But we all know damn well that the Clippers make the Finals everyone is going to be "The Clippers are the best team in the NBA" but won't bring up the same argument as they do for the Lakers and Lebron. 😤😤😤

    John DJohn D8 kun oldin
  • I'm starting to think yall dont know basketball! And obviously bias! I'm going to only say this once this is by far the easiest ring he has gotten and that lebron road to the finals was never hard and has walked thru the east unscathed all 9 appearances especially given the fact he's had all-star help more than once and still managed to lose! Its clear as day! As a older guy I have never seen a player get the praise and excuses when he loses and then the narrative is always in favor of him. Narrative after narrative if he doesn't win and the biggest part is that lebron has no help when thats false on so many levels. And he can take garbage teams to the finals and thats definitely not true! After you said its false I didn't even wanna watch the rest im 29 sec in and now here comes the ass kissing and dick riding. Please misleading ppl. Honest opinion lebron was never better than kobe and kobe is constantly being disrespected even when he was still playing

    Xavier JonesXavier Jones8 kun oldin
  • Ngl I rooted for all the Lakers opponents. But honestly it's bc I almist always root for the underdogs. But I knew the chances of the Lakers winning. I knew the chance of the Lakers winning everything was bigger than the trail blazers beating them for example. And also saying Lebron proved anyone wrong or that he has been the one closing out the games is just cap. He didn't really prove anyone wrong by going to the west bc he did get a lot just handed to him like AD. And also we all know it's AD who's been the guy carrying and the guy taking big time shots. But in the same time he kinda proved some of us wrong. He made it further than I expected and I respect that. And I don't hate it at all. I like when someone prove me wrong. Shows what kind of mentality they have. And we talk a lot about how the teams can beat the lakers but actually looking back now it sounds stupid listening to what everyone said. He did kinda have it easy. But shoutout to everyone including LBJ. Also as I said I root for the underdogs so I'm hoping the heat can take the W tonight. Jimmy's just built different. Tyler as well. Been one of my favorites since Jimmy went on the JJ Reddick podcast.

  • No warriors, no KD, no Kylrie, 5 months off, playing in the bubble... LeBron is about as good as he has been for the past three of four years: “Best player in the league-ish.” He can be the best player in the league and still have an easy path one year. They don’t have to be mutually exclusive 🤦🏽‍♂️ And before the comments sections blows its lid off with, “all of the other teams had to go through COVID and the bubble, etc.” NOT every team benefited from this. The older guys took the five months off seriously. LeBron and AD had time to lick their wounds from the first half of the season. Certain teams thrive off of the fans and the momentum of the regular season as well as a regular setting. For the record, I would have said the same for the Clippers, had they beaten the Lakers. They would have benefited greatly from not having to play in a hostile HOME/AWAY setting.

  • I'm so sick of this shit. Haters of MJ think he had no competition. Haters of Lebron think he had no competition. Look some titles, some paths are easier than others that's just how it is. Bulls first title in 91 the Lakers lost BOTH James Worthy and Byron Scott (both starters). They still had Magic who was still a superstar at the time but he needed his full team to beat Chicago. This path for Lebron to the finals has been one of his easier one's but I still think Lakers beat Clippers in a 7 game series. Jokic destroyed the Clippers so how did they plan to stop AD who is better in the post and more dominant than Jokic? And this series with Miami I have to admit, Lakers are coughing up some games they should be winning. Remember Miami is without two starters. One player who was leading the team in scoring and assist and another guy who was leading in rebounds. I was wrong about the sweep but Lakers will win this series because they have Lebron.

  • I don't see anyone challenging next year either, barring some crazy trades and huge pride swallowing during the offseason. The odds that Steph and Clay will both return to previous form simaltaneously is unlikely. At best we'll get them back at around at around 85% for the first year...and without durant, that won't be enough. Add to that the strong and HUGE bench that the Lakers have and Lebron sees at least one more chip after this season to tie Kobe...Hell, he might even come off the bench at 40 to win another one with the team of his choice...cuz who doesn't want this guy on their team. Wonder what Kyries up to right now.
