LeBron James and Anthony Davis celebrate championship win against James' old Miami Heat team.

When it was over -- when the Los Angeles Lakers had finally put away a daunting, dangerous and worthy Miami Heat team 106-93 in Game 6 of the NBA Finals on Sunday night -- LeBron James and his teammates were finally 2020 NBA champions.

They danced. They hugged. They cried. They drank. They drank some more. And perhaps, when the rush recedes and the joyous high of crowning themselves the champs gives way in the days ahead to a quieter thoughtfulness -- perhaps it will strike each of them, in their own way, why they may have just won the most impressive championship in Lakers history.

The Lakers now have 17 NBA titles, tying the Boston Celtics for the most in league history, and each of those had its own beauty, its own special meaning. But this one right here, in 2020 -- earned the year of Kobe Bryant's death, of COVID-19's hold on all of us, from a bubble in Orlando watched by many of us who feel trapped in our own upside-down lives -- has many ways in which it can lay claim to being the most special.
