LAHAINA - Congratulations to the Los Angeles Lakers for an unforgettable NBA season!  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.

Let's start with LeBron James, whose greatness, yet again, was on vivid and magnificent display. He helped close out his former team with a 28-point, 14-rebound, 10-assist night that spoke to all the ways his presence alone is a receipt for greatness. And he rightly claimed another Finals MVP award, making him the only player in history with three Finals MVPs for three separate teams, and one of only two players with four or more.
