  • Y’all was saying KJ was crazy and creating narratives for lebron when he said it’s the most impactful/important Chip for lakers and Derek Fisher himself said it now.

    • @Matt S What does his coaching failures have anything to do with his history of playing with the lakers. Derek could have like most older generation athletes, protect his generation of Laker runs & defend Kobe by immediately denying the impact of this chip led by lebron. He has no incentive & gains nothing by saying it has the most meaning and impact.

    • Since Derek Fisher said it, that makes it true? A guy who failed harder than anyone I've ever seen at coaching in the NBA, and you think his opinion is sacrosanct? He's also a dishonest and disingenuous person who is also transparently unethical. Just look up the way that he is treated teammates and even players that he was a coach of. Gtfoh with that crappy take.

    • They wont, because this will result in higher operational cost for these companies, less profit and ultimately less money to give to athletes. So you are saying that players demand for less money... Yeah right!!! Not gonna happen

  • According to Stephen A's logic Jimmy Butler's legacy took a huge hit because he's now 0-1 in the finals and Giannis is good because he's 0-0

    Paul LéVesquePaul LéVesque7 ditë më parë
    • I'm not even Jimmy/Heat fan, but what he did during these playoffs, cemented him in the superstar tier. If people remember the conversations surrounding him for the past few years, he was seen as a chemistry-killer, too difficult to play with, and during the off-season, he was seen as a tier below the big names like Kawhi, PG (even though he wasn't a free agent), KD, Kyrie, etc. I think it can at least be argued that Butler deserves to be in this echelon.

  • This championship reestablishes the Lakers as the top spot to be in the league once again. In the past during free agent meetings, they had to talk about their history of wining, but they don’t have to do that now. Winning this chip also, all but guarantees that AD and Lebron will finish their careers as Lakers and It pretty much guarantees they’ll be able to sign another star as Lebrons career enters the final few years.

      ShawnShawn7 ditë më parë
    • @Dion R I mean if you’re going to count Derek Fisher as a star then I can say Kuzma was drafted by the Lakers for this team

      Daniel RidoreDaniel Ridore7 ditë më parë
    • @Daniel Ridore Magic was drafted by the Lakers The Logo of the NBA was drafted by the Lakers Worthy was drafted by the Lakers Fisher was drafted by the Lakers The Celtics, Bulls, Spurs, and Warriors dynasties had stars that were drafted by their native organizations. Havlicek, Cousy, Bird, Jordan, Robinson, Duncan, Parker, Ginobili, Curry, Thompson, Draymond. This Lakers team has ZERO stars native to the Lakers, which makes this title entirely bought.

      Dion RDion R7 ditë më parë
    • @Dion R That’s how it’s always been with the Lakers. Kareem wasn’t drafted by the Lakers, either was Wilt, Shaq wasn’t drafted, Kobe was traded for after draft night, Pau was traded for. It’s part of the game and the Lakers have been able to bring in stars. Why would you not take advantage of that? Those teams you mentioned don’t do it as much because they aren’t the Lakers and they aren’t a free agent destination when you talk about superstars.

  • Lebron teams with superstars for rings. Today's NBA players take the easy road. This is why they'll never be ranked amoungst the old NBA players that grinded and wanted to beat the best, not side with them.

    • @Selfish Stockton your forgetting Jordan player with Rodamn another all star

      Ayuub NurAyuub Nur7 ditë më parë
    • @Selfish Stockton your statement is redundant since your reaching and missing the point. Unless your talking about AD, having an all star doesn’t help win rings if they don’t fit in with the system and/or they aren’t performing. Michael stayed with a team that had already established a great winning system and once they acquired Scottie, it was an easy route to the finals. Scottie is a legend, averaging 20-22ppg alongside Jordan isn’t an easy feat, especially back then when the 3pt shot wasn’t prominent. Now people are questioning Lebron for joining shitty teams and making them better? How is that an easy ring? The Lakers were a terrible team, the Cavs were literally the worst team and the Miami couldn’t get passed the 1st round. You guys contradict yourselves, you mention the Chicago bulls had the best team of all time, yet you claim Jordan didn’t have the support system that LeBron has...

      Blackwell STBlackwell ST7 ditë më parë
    • @Blackwell ST You’re smoking crack. Jordan played with Scottie who had 6 all stars his whole career. Lebron’s teammates have a combined 33+. You’re a fool if you don’t think he’s teamed up with all stars to get easy rings

      Selfish StocktonSelfish Stockton7 ditë më parë
    • Look at what being “loyal” gotten guys like Dame Russ. Either traded or ringless because their front offices can’t put a decent team around them. I hate KDs move but he would’ve been the same if he didn’t dip.

  • There’s no explanation needed for the importance of this Championship. The Lakers, for decades, have been the stepping stone to being the best in this league and the representation of the entire NBA as a whole. Even more so now with LeBron on their team than any time at all in the time period since the retirement of Kobe Bryant, who I’ll get to in just a moment. Right now in fact. His tragic death made the Lakers see that nothing in this league or in this world anywhere could be taken for granted and helped them realize it was going to take their best basketball to win. Even with LeBron and AD both. Helped them see that they could not use their reputations to get cocky and think the wins were just going to come easy because of who they are. For them, just like it is for all 30 teams, it was either step up or step aside. And the Lakers played Lakers basketball and stepped up when they needed to the most. They made sure that the travesty of that fateful day did not go into history in vain. The spirit and the legacy of Kobe Bryant smile down on the Los Angeles Lakers. Now. And forever. Congratulations Lakers. Champions again.
