The Lakers will add another banner in the Staples Center rafters.
Los Angeles Lakers
Behind the dynamic duo of LeBron James and Anthony Davis, the Los Angeles Lakers have won their first championship since 2010. The Lakers only played one series in the 2020 playoffs that went past five games.
Although the Miami Heat lost to the Lakers in six games in the NBA Finals, the franchise’s future seems promising. Two of Miami’s core players, Bam Adebayo and Tyler Herro, are 23 years old or younger.
After coming back from down 3-1 twice in the same postseason, the Denver Nuggets weren’t able to accomplish the feat for a third time against the Lakers. Despite the Western Finals loss, the Nuggets’ future seems bright.
