It took three-hundred and fifty-six days from the start of the NBA season to crowning a champion on October 11th, 2020. In Game 6 of the 2020 NBA Finals, the Los Angeles Lakers dominated the Miami Heat on their way to a 106-93 close-out win.

As the clock struck 0:00, LeBron James and the Lakers were finally able to put an end to this historic and wacky season as they began to celebrate their 17th NBA title. This was the first NBA Championship for the Lakers franchise in over a decade, and a fitting end to a season in which we all lost the great Kobe Bryant back in late January.

One of the most impressive stats was the fact that the Lakers ended the season a ridiculous 57-0 when heading into the fourth quarter.

LeBron James secured his fourth NBA Finals MVP, which moved him out of a tie with Magic Johnson, Tim Duncan and Shaquille O’Neal, and into second all time. He also became the only player in NBA history to win a Finals MVP with three different franchises. James now only trails Michael Jordan, who won the award six times during his illustrious career.
