LeBron James was seen joking with the Larry O’Brien Trophy about it “cheating” on him. The Los Angeles Lakers are finally back from Orlando where they spend several months in the NBA bubble. They were able to take down the Miami Heat in only 6 games and easily looked like the more dominant team. This could mean a lot of success to come in the future.
Many questions are going to come up in the next few months regarding free agency. Obviously, we have already learned that Rajon Rondo has opted out of his contract. But there are also questions surrounding Anthony Davis and what he will do.
But the bubble was definitely difficult to deal with for some players. One of the players that came out with his opinions on it was LeBron James. Take a look at what he said last week.
“I am here for one reason and one reason only, and that’s to compete for a championship,” James said. “That was my mindset once I entered the bubble, once I entered the quarantine process the first two days. And then right from my first practice my mindset was to, if I’m going to be here, make the most of it and see what you can do and lock in on what the main thing is. And the main thing was for us to finish the season and compete for a championship.”

“So that’s just been my mindset throughout these — I don’t even know how many days it is, whatever how many days it is, it feels like five years so it really doesn’t matter. I’ve been as locked in as I’ve ever been in my career.”
But LeBron is better now, and is joking around with the title trophy. He was seen making jokes recently. Take a look:
This is pretty great and true at the same time. LeBron just got his 4th Finals victory and he has every right to have some fun. He and the team were very impressive.
