LeBron James was recently seen playing blackjack while celebrating the Lakers 2020 title. The Los Angeles Lakers are officially NBA champions. The series with the Miami Heat was very impressive on the Lakers part and it was great to see them back on top. But it was also a very difficult season for the Lakers.
Kobe Bryant’s death was hard to deal with for the entire organization. LeBron James recently came out and talked about how hard this was for him. And also, after the title, many fans connected the dots.
“Of course, you think there’s going to be time for us to get together and I understand that there are regrets in life, but I definitely wish I had that moment with him,” James told Yahoo Sports. “I do remember when I decided to come here, he sent me a text right away and said, ‘Welcome, brother. Welcome to the family.’ That was a special moment because at the time, Laker faithful wasn’t [fully in on me]. A lot of people were saying, ‘Well, we might not want LeBron at this point in his career,’ and, ‘Is he right? Is he going to get us back [to the Finals]?’ So to hear from him and get his stamp of approval, it meant a lot. I don’t ever question myself, but when it’s coming from Kobe, it definitely meant a lot.”

But there have been some interesting things to come out with the Lakers celebration. LeBron James was seen playing blackjack. Take a look.
This is great. LeBron is obviously enjoying himself before he gets back to work. The Lakers definitely deserve to celebrate and that is exactly what they are doing.
There have also been some interesting rumors on the off season as well. Take a look at one revolving around Derrick Rose.
“I think both sides were reluctant when they went into in January, February,” one general manager said recently. “I don’t think the Lakers wanted to make a major move because they thought they could do something on the buyout market. And I don’t think the [Detroit] Pistons wanted to make a major move because Derrick was happy there. You know, the Lakers wanted to be involved in case the [Los Angeles] Clippers got involved or someone else, the Bucks or the Nuggets, whoever. So there was interest but not too serious. Now, everything has shifted a little. Now, they’re both in a position to where a deal is much more likely now.”
