In the second year of his Western Conference career, Lebron James has already reached its first ‘West Conference Finals’. He has also achieved it in his second season in Los angeles lakers, who have not managed to get that far since the 2009/10 academic year, in which they won the last of their NBA rings.
Right now, the Los Angeles franchise can only wait to see who will be their rival in the fight to reach the NBA Finals: the Los Angeles Clippers or the Denver Nuggets. Currently, the series is going 3-2 in favor of the Lakers’ neighbors, but the Nuggets are in their best moment of form and hope to achieve the first round feat against the Utah Jazz (come back 3-1).
LeBron himself, in the post-elimination press conference against Houstn Rockets, has made a series of statements (collected by the Yahoo! Sports medium) in which he talks about everything the Lakers have gone through to get to this point, and with the 17th ring goal for the franchise in mind:
« Taking this team back to the place they were used to being a while ago, this is why I decided in 2018 to come here. It is an honor for me to wear purple and gold. Right now we just want to continue with the legacy of the franchise and fighting for the championship, for that we have come to the bubble, « said LeBron James.
