LeBron James looks ahead to NBA finals after Lakers win Western conference

NBA superstar LeBron James reflected late on Saturday (September 26) on his journey to his first NBA championship game in a Lakers uniform after the west coast team beat the Denver Nuggets in the Western Conference finals series.

James heaped praise on Mike Malone, his former assistant coach at the Cleveland Cavaliers where he began his career and current head coach of the Nuggets.

He said he was thinking about his teammates who had never been to a championship game in their career, including teammate Anthony Davis – a new face to the Lakers roster this season after a LeBron approved move from the New Orleans Pelicans.

The Lakers will now face the winners of the Eastern Conference final between the Miami Heat and Boston Celtics, with the Heat leading the series 3-2 and needing a game to book their spot in the championship game.

The 35-year-old future hall of famer voiced his disappointment at the lack of votes he received for the regular season MVP award (Most Valuable Player), an accolade won back to back by Milwaukee Bucks Center Giannis Antetokounmpo.

James said he was proud to have taken the Lakers back to their first NBA championship game appearance since their 16th title win a decade ago.
