<h3>The Los Angeles Lakers won the NBA title, ending a decade-long wait, for the 17th time on Sunday evening, after beating the Miami Heat (106-93) to seal a 4-2 <a href="https:\/\/see.news\/?s=lakers" target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer">series<\/a> victory, which was decided on the basis of the best in 7 games.<\/h3>\r\nThe Lakers have equaled the Boston Celtics' record for the most NBA championships.\r\n\r\n"King", LeBron James, the Finals' most valuable player (MVP) posted a triple double - scoring 28 points, 14 rebounds and 10 assists.\r\n\r\nJames became the first player in NBA history to be named Finals MVP with 3 different teams (Lakers, Cavaliers and Heat).\r\n\r\nNow with four MVPs, he trails only Michael Jordan, who won six.\r\n\r\n<img class="wp-image-158213 size-jnews-360x504" src="https:\/\/see.news\/wp-content\/uploads\/2020\/10\/lebron-james-360x349.jpg" alt="" \/>\r\n\r\n"It means a lot to represent this franchise," said James. "I told [Lakers president] Jeanie [Buss] when I came here that I was going to put this franchise back in the position where it belongs."\r\n\r\n"We just want our respect. Rob [Pelinka] wants his respect, coach [Frank] Vogel wants his respect, our organisation wants its respect, Lakers nation wants its respect," he added. "And I want my respect too."\r\n\r\nAnthony Davis added 19 points and 15 follow-ups for the Lakers.\r\n\r\nJimmy Butler, Miami Heat star, scored 12 points and 8 assists.\r\n\r\nThe Lakers played strongly and fiercely, in an attempt not to give Miami a chance to bounce in the last moments, like what happened in the fifth game Friday.\r\n\r\nThe Lakers concluded an unprecedented season, as the season resumed in 31 July after a four-month pause due to the Covid-19 pandemic, and all competitions were held at Disney World in Florida after resumption.\r\n\r\n<img class="aligncenter size-jnews-featured-750 wp-image-158217" src="https:\/\/see.news\/wp-content\/uploads\/2020\/10\/d5d3e8e1-71dd-4ab2-b52f-69e3a5b1514a_16x9_1200x676-750x422.jpg" alt="" \/>\r\n\r\nThe Lakers paid tribute to Kobe Bryant after winning their first title in a decade.\r\n\r\n"Kobe, I know he's looking down on us super proud," said Lakers forward Anthony Davis. "We miss him, and this is definitely for him."\r\n\r\nFive-time NBA champion <a href="https:\/\/www.bbc.com\/news\/world-us-canada-51256756" target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer">Bryant died in January in a helicopter crash<\/a> alongside his 13-year-old daughter Gianna and others.\r\n\r\nHe spent his whole career with the Lakers and led them to their last NBA title in 2010.
