LeBron James and the Lakers are Headed Back into the NBA Finals

NBA – Finally the drought has ended for the LA Lakers as they headed back to the NBA Finals once again ending 6 - straight years of playoff drought, a decade of not reaching the NBA Finals since the Kobe Bryant era in 2010 and now entering their 32nd NBA Finals appearances in franchise history.

LeBron James, who leads the Lakers in another stellar performance in Game 5 of the Western Conference Finals drops his 4th triple double of the postseason after scoring 38 points, 16 rebounds and 10 assists to lead the Lakers in capturing the 2019 – 2020 NBA Western Conference Champion in Orlando Florida at the Bubble.

The top seeded LA Lakers advance in the NBA Finals after a convincing win in Game 5, 117 – 107 against the tough and young talented core of Denver Nuggets. The series ended 4 – 1.

LeBron James is also making his way back in the NBA Finals after missing last year's playoffs in his first year with the Lakers due to groin injury. He is now entering his 9th out of 10th straight NBA Finals appearances while 10 out of 17th NBA Finals appearances in his entire NBA career.

He is also the 3rd NBA Player in NBA history to reach 10th NBA Finals appearances behind those great NBA Players like Boston Celtics Bill Russell and Sam Jones with 12 and 11 NBA Finals appearances respectively. While LeBron James tied fellow Lakers star Kareem Abdul Jabbar with 10 appearances a piece.

LeBron James reached his first NBA Finals in 2007 in a Cavs uniform where he got swept by the San Antonio Spurs. His 2nd, 3rd, 4th and 5th NBA Finals appearance is with the Miami Heat from 2010 - 2014. His 6th, 7th, 8th and 9th appearance is with the Cleveland Cavaliers from 2015 – 2018 where he won his last NBA Championship in 2016.

LeBron James is also eyeing for his 4th Championship ring and hopefully the first NBA player to do so in 3 different teams? The Miami Heat, Cleveland Cavaliers and perhaps with the Los Angeles Lakers.
