After a delayed second half of the season, the Los Angeles Lakers have won the NBA Championship. The Lakers are now tied with the Boston Celtics for the most championship titles won by a franchise, with 17 wins.

The Lakers defeated the Miami Heat 106-93 in Game 6 of the NBA Finals. LeBron James was named Most Valuable Player, for the fourth time in his career. LeBron is also the first played to be named MVP four times with three different franchises. The team dedicated their win to the late Kobe and Gianna Bryant, who died earlier this year.

The National Basketball Association is also being praised for their handling of the NBA Bubble. There were no positive COVID-19 reports during the bubble.
