Tiger Fight, October 12th
Speaking of the feeling of winning the 17th championship for the Lakers in team history after various changes this season, James said: "It makes the championship feel even sweeter. If you have never experienced anything, then I don't want to say that this process is deceived. But it doesn’t feel worth it.

But our ending and the way we reach it, this is an incredible moment for us."

Especially considering We are the favorites to win the championship, and people regard us as targets. Everyone in the team has the motivation to prove themselves, and every player is like this. And we are united, from the first to the 15th, to eliminate arrogance, Going through the ups and downs, from the beginning of the journey last October to being here a whole year later, we have entered the competition. In any case, we are always united for this thing (raising the championship trophy). Everything is for This, hard work will be rewarded. As he said, the more struggles you experience, the more ups and downs you experience, the harder you win the championship, and the sweeter the feeling after holding the cup.
